How to create your own local copy of LHCBCOND.db (Instructions provided by Marco Clemencic)

Here, I assume you will install it on top of your Alignment Project

  • setenvAlignment v2r0 (or the latest version)
  • getpack Tools/CondDBUI v2r2
  • cd Tools/CondDBUI/v2r2/cmt
  • source setup.csh
  • python ../python/ -s $LHCb_release_area/DBASE/Det/XmlConditions/v2r5/DDDB -c "sqlite://;schema=LHCBCOND.db;dbname=LHCBCOND"

Whallah: You will have a file, LHCBCOND.db in your local directory.


  • v2r2 of CondDBUI is used as an example. Use the latest release consistent with your version of LHCb.
  • To determine your LHCb release, issue the command: "cmt show projects" after "setenvAlignment v2r0"
  • v2r5 is the current version of XmlConditions. Check release area for the latest version.
