There are two things here:

* process of integration of Algo+HLT
* schedule & status for HLT Image

They can be 2 separate (however connected !) topics

HLT Software Image Requirements and Schedule


Introduction

The HLT Software Image is a binary image of Linux filesystem (disk partition) which contains the full set of Atlas Software as a super-set of software releases of Athena, TDAQ and HLT Software. The detailed description is on dedicated HltImage page.

(Currently) the HLT Software Image is the only officially chosen/approved way of delivering the full Atlas Software to the Atlas Experimental Area network. Since this is an easy and convenient way to deliver/install the full set of Atlas SW also to any remote sites (home Institutes), the HLT SW Image concept can be considered as an official complete production "super-release" of Atlas Software.

It must be clear to all Atlas Groups participating in commissioning in the Atlas Point-1 that NOT all/any versions (releases) of Athena/TDAQ/HLT Software available on CERN AFS cluster are/will be available at Point-1, but only those which are chosen/agreed to be included in the HLT Software Image "super-release". That's why, for efficient work of all the Groups it is important to know and follow the requirements and schedule of the HLT Software Images.


Requirements for code developers

Have a look at general info how to run TDAQ/HLT on the HLT SW Image: RunningHLTSoftwareFromTheHLTImage

Requirements for Detector Groups

  • take into account schedule of the HLT SW Images and versions of Athena/HLT/TDAQ entering the HLT SW image during your development/modifications of detector-specific code
  • for a forthcoming HLT SW Image, check if you are satisfied with planned versions/status of components and if not, provide such versions of your detector-specific code which are (made to be) compatible with the required Athena version

Requirements for PESA Algorithm Groups

  • take into account schedule of the HLT SW Images and versions of Athena/HLT/TDAQ entering the HLT SW image during your development/modifications of PESA algorithm code
  • take into account plan & schedule of the HLT SW Image and Athena versions there
  • for a forthcoming HLT SW Image, provide algorithms tested (by people of Algorithm Groups) in the following way:
    • tested in pure offline to solve any offline-internal problems (jobOptions syntax)
    • tested your algorithms with AthenaMT/AthenaPT
  • test algorithms by running them inside L2/EF with the HLT SW Image during its preparation, together with HLT-I Group and delegate corresponding people from Algorithm Groups to do this and to be "on call" later on
  • dedicated BS data files should be available and used during these tests; algorithm groups may need to prepare such datafiles depending on featured of PESA objects and BS used in their code (for example, for tests of PESA in EF there should be datafiles containing L2Result)

Only after all these tests passed, the algorithms are included in the HLT SW Image and are being commissioned

Requirements for HLT Infrastructure Group

HLT-Infrastructure team is responsible for:

  • providing developers with AthenaMT/AthenaPT tools for these tests
  • testing PESA algorithms and/or updated Detector-specific code together with delegated for this developers during the HLT SW Image production, before delivering the SW Image to the Point-1.


Plans & Schedule for HLT Software Images

Schedule for HLT SW Images

It is important to note that producing, testing and deploying a new HLT SW Image takes about 1-2 weeks, but in addition to this, it is important to have at least 2-3 month time for exploitation of the installed SW Image, for the performance and stability tests. Since the same people are involved in both commissioning and exploitation, these stages can not be done in parallel and lead to reserved time for the exploitation. For better use of time, the exploitation activities & tasks should be properly planned in advance.
