Accessing data on CASTOR

Many datasets for local running could be found on CASTOR. To get an access for reading those files bash environment variable STAGE_SVCCLASS must be set to something different than default.



To be able to copy data to CASTOR user area either with rfcp or xrdcp the environment variable STAGE_HOST must be set to castorpublic, by default it is set to castoratlas. Now you can copy your files:

export STAGE_HOST=castorpublic

rfcp file.root /castor/


Dump version tags for a dataset: [filename]

Using CMT

Setting up UserAnalysis package:

cmt show versions PhysicsAnalysis/AnalysisCommon/UserAnalysis

cat /afs/

cmt co -r UserAnalysis-00-14-03 PhysicsAnalysis/AnalysisCommon/UserAnalysis


A bunch of useful commands could be found here.

svn ls $SVNROOT/PhysicsAnalysis/D2PDMaker/tags
