Distributed Analysis on Panda


This page describes how to submit user analysis jobs from LCG/OSG/NG to the ATLAS production system, PanDA.


First, please make sure you have a grid certificate. See Starting on the Grid. You must have usercert.pem and userkey.pem under the ~/.globus directory.

$ ls ~/.globus/*
usercert.pem userkey.pem

Then, you need to install the panda-client package which contains client tools to submit analsis jobs to PanDA. See the panda-client page for installation and setup procedures. e.g., at CERN, after setting up athena, simply do :

$ source /afs/cern.ch/atlas/offline/external/GRID/DA/panda-client/latest/etc/panda/panda_setup.[c]sh

How to use individual tool

Once you install the panda-client package, the following tools are available.

Please refer each HowTo page according to your purpose.
