Copying DB files to local disk

27/1/05, 8_7_2
  1. Copy relevant files to local
    • POOL catalogue(s)
    • METAfiles (including CARF_System*)
    • data files (e.g. Events, Hits and MCInfo for MC, Events, Digis and Assoc for Digis, ..)
  2. Change (all?) pfn specifications to the new (local) path
  3. Use DetachRun to remove those runs not copied to local (there must be a more efficient way)
  4. Clean catalogue

Adding a package to CVS

  1. check out subsystem/.admin/NewLeaf
  2. fill in information (needs AFS username of initial package administrator)
  3. commit
ALERT! attention with package name (will stay forever) and administrator (has to be in developers list)

Adding a developer

  1. Make sure to have the name included in developer_list.html (see comments in the .admin/developers file)
  2. Add the name (in the same spelling) to the developers file
  3. pserver / kserver access should not be mixed: in order to be able to commit the area has to be checked out using "project ORCA" (or commit with "cvs -d $CVSROOT ...")

(Tracker) particle gun

  • TkSimEventFromGun and TkDigiWriter groups
  • probably SmearingClusterizers library
  • SimReader
Typical orcarc:
MagneticField:Name = UniformMagneticField

RawHepEvent:gaussianVertex = 1
RawHepEventFactoryBuilder:ParticleStrategy = SingleParticle
VertexGenerator:SigmaX = 0.0015
VertexGenerator:SigmaY = 0.0015
VertexGenerator:SigmaZ = 5.3

ParticleGun:MinPt = 5
ParticleGun:MaxPt = 5
ParticleGun:MinEta = -2.5
ParticleGun:MaxEta =  2.5
ParticleGun:PID = 13

TkSiStripClusterizer:ClusterizerName = SiStripClusterizerSmearing
TkSiPixelClusterizer:ClusterizerName = SiPixelClusterizerSmearing

Gun and misalignment

For misalignment studies with the tracker fast simulation the TkMisalignmentSwitchingRefitter can be used. It is identical to the TkTrackRefitter (in fact, it uses the TkTrackRefitter), but it will deactivate the misalignment in all Alignables accessible from AlignableTracker before reconstruction.

ALERT! Warnings:

  1. In this scenario the fast simulation ("gun") would run with the misaligned positions and the reconstruction with the aligned positions. This is exactly the opposite to what is done when using the misalignment with the standard simulation!
  2. Obviously this will only work if the reconstruction of the TkTrackRefitter hasn't been triggered before using the TkMisalignmentSwitchingRefitter .

New scramv1 ORCA project area

  1. $ cd mydir
  2. $ project ORCA
  3. $ cvs co config
  4. modify config
    • choose the right CMSToolBox version in boot, bootsrc and requirements (CMS_nnn_xxx)
    • change the project version in boot and bootsrc (ORCA_i_j_k)
  5. tag and commit config with ORCA version
  6. change to installation directory
  7. scramv1 project -b mydir /config/boot
