My Notes for running CMSSW (November 2009)

Compiling a new version

  • ssh -Y SLC5 machines
  • go to ~/public/cms/WORK/
  • scramv1 list CMSSW (tells me all the available CMSSW versions)
  • cmsrel CMSSW_3_3_2 (or other version)
  • cd CMSSW_3_3_2/src
  • cmsenv
  • cvs co Calibration/HcalCalibAlgos
  • scramv1 b (to build the libraries)
  • cd Calibration/HcalCalibAlgos/test
  • cmsRun

The basic twiki is:

The most important routine seems to be: /CMSSW/Calibration/HcalCalibAlgos/plugins/

When editing

  • edit the file, such as
  • in order to recompile, must go to the CMSSW_3_3_2/src subdirectory

Running in CAF

submission to CAF using crab:

source /afs/
source /afs/
cd to your CMSSW area and where your crab.cfg is, then,
crab -create
crab -submit

example crab.cfg:

jobtype = cmssw
scheduler = caf

pset =

total_number_of_events = -1
events_per_job = 190000

#output name should be the same as in specified in
output_file = outputfile.root

return_data = 0
use_central_bossDB = 0
use_boss_rt = 0
copy_data = 1
storage_element =
storage_path= /castor/
user_remote_dir = /user/m/mvelasco/.....



Also your output directory in castor should have the right write
rfchmod 775 /castor/

interactive caf:
bsub -Is -q cmsinter xterm &

To look in castro:

  • rfdir
  • rfmkdir
  • rfio: to link
  • rfcp to copy

Checking jobs


*Checking tags:

  • edmProvDump rfio:/castor/


  • root.exe ValidFile_XX.root (or whatever the file name is)
  • TBrowser b; (inside root of course)
  • You probably want to study plot_calib_valid900.C to see how to use the ntuples.

For some useful hints on accessing data, see

  • for example, to look at some beam halo data,
  • nsls -l /castor/
  • or nsls -l /castor/
  • gives you a bunch of files.
  • you would use this as: '/store/express/BeamCommissioning09/ExpressPhysics/FEVT/v2/000/122/067/3E0460A4-6FD7-DE11-919E-0019B9F730D2.root' in your cfg file
