File System

Large File Output: /volatile

That is what /volatile and /cache are designed for large file output.

CSV has a tape volume /mss/hallc/E12-09-002/ allocated to it.

Your workflow should be

  1. writing to /volatile for tests (followed by pushing those files to tape if the results are useful).
  2. or if you have 'known good' replay scripts, then you can actually 'write' directly to /cache (which is automagically backed to tape) and cut out the /volatile middleman.

See the write-through cache docs here for details.

Analysis Code: /group

The /group disks are backed up like home directories. Here we have limited space 60GB and only code scripts and small data files should be kept here.

The CSV software is installed under /group/c-csv/local.

modules files

CSV software can be found in /group/c-csv/local and is setup to use environment-modules (modulefiles).

If module avail doesn't work then you must add source /etc/profile.d/modules.sh to your .bashrc. group disk: /group/c-csv

Running module avail should produce something like following.

--------------------------------------- /group/c-csv/local/etc/modulefiles ----------------------------------------
cmake/3.10.3                epics/latest                hcana/1.0                   root/6.14.04

csv/latest                  gcc/latest                  ncurses/6.1                 tmux/2.7
curl/7.61.1                 git/2.18.0                  ncurses/latest              tmux/latest

epics/base_7.0.1            hallc_tools/latest          root/6.14.0

Run the following to setup your environment

source /group/c-csv/local/setup.sh
module load csv/latest

Working on cdaq machines

For details on how to load different environments run:

bash_csv help

replay

Online replay directory was the same as the pt sidis.

To get to a good bash environment run

bash_csv counter

Run Information Monitor (blue screen)

To get things started, on cdaql1 run:

bash_csv run_info

which will launch (or attach) the run_info tmux session. Use ctrl-a n to cycle through the windows. The IOC window should be launched at start.

The bulk of the work is done by the EPICS software IOC found here.

Tips and Tricks

userweb

Want a userweb.jlab.org/~USER account?

Note: /userweb/USER/public_html is not mounted on the farm nodes. You just be on labl4 or a similar node.

How to effectively use userweb:

  1. On the farm, you write a script that outputs myplot.pdf
  2. ssh jlabl4 'mkdir -p /userweb/USER/public_html/hallc/my_analysis/'
  3. scp myplot.pdf jlabl4:/userweb/USER/public_html/hallc/my_analysis/.

Or better yet, inside your root script.

...
TCanvas* c = ...
...
c->SaveAs("myplot.png");
c->SaveAs("myplot.pdf");
std::system("ssh jlabl4 'mkdir -p /userweb/USER/public_html/hallc/my_analysis/");
std::system("scp myplot.pdf jlabl4:/userweb/USER/public_html/hallc/my_analysis/.");

Where we assume that passwordless ssh (see below) has been setup.

Now you can get your plots at https://userweb.jlab.org/~USER/hallc/my_analysis/. It helps to save a png and pdf for plots because a png is easily viewed in the browser while a pdf is generally better.
