Vetra with Zero Suppressed data

With the release of Vetra v2r2 it's now easy as 1-2-3 for everyone to analyse zero suppressed VELO data using the Velo Cluster and Track Data Monitoring packages. Before we continue, make sure that you have at least Vetra v2r2 and the DAQ/MDF package installed.

Ok, now look in your Vetra/v*r*/options directory. There you'll find 4 options files that are of interest to us:

  • VetraZS.opts For running Vetra over "real data" in the form of .bin files.
  • VetraZSSim.opts For running Vetra over simulated data in the form of .digi files.
  • VetraTracking.opts and VetraGenericTracking.opts Depending on which kind of pattern recognition you want to use.

To run Vetra the two first options files are important to us. If you want to one of them you can use the predefined aliases vetraZS and vetraZSSim. If you want to use your own options file you need to type something like:

../slc3_ia32_gcc323/Vetra.exe ../options/myOptionsFile.opts (obviously this only works if you are in a subdirectory to Vetra/v*r*/, like cmt or job).

The tracking options file is included in a C/C++ style from VetraZS.opts or VetraZSSim.opts. I suggest that you edit one of these files to see how it's done.

To learn more about the the functionality of the high level data monitoring, read this article. Useful information can also be found on this agenda page from the ACDC software training day.
