TotemDQM

The successor of the Monitor, based on Totem Offline SW.

Installation and documentation

The TotemDQM is a part of the Totem Offline SW, therefore the installation procedure and documentation sources are identical as to any other Totem Offline SW module.

For proper functionality (not for compilation), the TotemDQM needs the QtRoot tool.

User's guide

1. Getting started

STEP 1

After proper configuration of your CMSSW, just type:

runTotemDQM
to start Data Quality Monitor Application.

To see more options you can use:

STEP 2

After running DQM application you should see Main Window.

In order to use the application you must open a configuration file.

To do so, just click on File->Open.

STEP 3

Now you should see 'Open Dialog' window.

Choose configuration files to be opened in section 'Configuration File' and related data files in section 'Event Source'.

Click 'Open'.

STEP 5

Try double-click on a cell to choose the plot you'd like to see.

After double-click on a cell, the 'Choose Dialog' Window should become visible.

Now you can select the plot that you're interested in.

From the left window (tree structure) you select the 'element type' and from the right window - 'output plot' related to the element.

Confirm by 'OK' or double-click.

You should see chosen plot in the clicked cell.

STEP 6

You can repeat the choosing plot operation for the same or other cells to get the plots you like.

If you need more cells, just increase the number of cells by clicking '+col' or '+row' button (in the 'Window Layout groupbox - right bottom of the Main Window).

STEP 7

For plots which are related to one event only use 'Event' groupbox (left bottom of the Main Window) to change the number of the run and event.

Use can also use '+' and '-' keyboard shortcut to change event number.

This is the minimum you have to know to use the DQM application, but you work can be much more pleasant and faster while using special features delivered by the DQM.

So I strongly recommend reading the next section.
