TotemRawDataLibrary is a code package for reading and validating TOTEM raw data. It provides an abstraction layer to provide unified access to data irrespectively of their format or storage location (local disk, CASTOR, EOS, ...).


Strictly speaking, this package is not a library, but a piece of code that is shared between Monitor and OfflineSW. This implies a specific organisation in the SVN repository.

VMEAStream naming scheme

To open an (online or file) VMEA stream, use string vmeastream://source instead of a file name. The source parameter is of form:

: local online (default)
file local file (both full and relative paths are accepted, full path recommended)
@host: remote online on node host
file@host remote file on node host (the full path to the file should be given)
@host1@host2: remote online on node host1 via the relay host host2
file@host1@host2 remote file on node host1 via the relay host host2 (the full path to the file should be given)
