This page describes how to test Panda jobs.

Production managers or ADCoS shifters should if possible use the test interface available on This allows to use an uniform environment and avoids the need of new installations. Check Setup atlas002 section for details on the installation on atlas002.


$ mkdir panda
$ cd panda
For SL(C)5 
$ svn co svn+ssh:// panda-server
For SL(C)6
$ svn co svn+ssh:// panda-server
$ cd panda-server
$ cd test

Note that you need a grid proxy and Python 2.3 or higher.

Setup on atlas002

For shifters with access to atlas002. The software to submit Panda test jobs on atlas002 is installed in /atlas-grid/pandatest_current You can log in the host, change to the directory, modify the PYTHONPATH and submit the test jobs. If you change some of the test jobs please update the CVS version.

Send jobs

         python [siteID]

where for evgen, for simul, and for reco.

For example,

$ python
If you want to send jobs to a specific site,
$ python BU_ATLAS_Tier2

If you send jobs to a specific site, pay attention that the Cloud is set correctly in the python file defining the test job. E.g. if you send a testSimulReco14 job to BU_ATLAS_Tier2 to allow the correct delivery of input files you should have in  = 'US' 
You may fine in the same directory, where NN is 14,15,16,17. For example, is for ATLAS release 17. If you want to test another release/cache, change the following two lines in
    job.AtlasRelease      = 'Atlas-17.0.5'
    job.homepackage       = 'AtlasProduction/'
For testG4sim, you can specify dataset name, input file name, cloud, and site name in the command line.
         python [siteID] [cloud] [dataset] [filename]

Monitoring test jobs

Note that test jobs do not show up in the regular monitoring pages like production dashboard. You have to check specifically for test jobs, e.g.:*&type=test

Kill jobs

         python pandaID1 [pandaID2]
Kill 123
$ python 123
Kill 123-135
$ python 123 135

Reassign jobs

         python PandaID1 [PandaID2]
Reassign 123
$ python 123
Reassign 123-135
$ python 123 135

Release waiting jobs
