TOTEM Runlog

Logging system for the TOTEM experiment.


User's Guide

What is it?

The system is designed to contain information about LHC runs for the TOTEM experiment. It allows to add new runs, list them and make queries to get runs meeting specified criteria. It's available at (web application -> easy access).

There are three main parts:

  • new run form
  • list
  • query form

new run form


To add a new run, you have to specify the required set of run parameters (marked red). Most of the parameters should contain a help text with a description of the expected value. Values in the form are saved each time you successfully send data to the system. So, when you want to add a next run, the form will be initially filled with the last values. These values are kept in a server session - they will be available until you clear your browser cookies.



The list of all runs. Entries are divided into pages. The list is configurable - click "configure list" to do it. You can select parameters which should be visible and change the number of runs displayed per page. These settings are also kept in a server session - they will be available until you clear your browser cookies.

query form


The form allows to specify the criteria and list only that runs which meets them. You can select type of a run, status (successful, crashed etc.), required detectors, roman pot position, reconstruction status, date and time. What is more, you can do more advanced queries by specifying limits (greater, less, equal etc.) on the particular parameters. Result of a query is presented on the same list as mentioned above.

admin panel

It is available at:

You have to login using totemdbk username and AFS password.

  • change or remove description of a run
