Layout and how it (generally) works

Disk space and path name

First, FastOffline results are on

  • /star/data09/
  • /star/data10/
  • /star/data11/
  • /star/data12/

Note first as a reminder, production paths follows a convention

/star/dataXX/$TriggerSetupName/$FieldString/$production/$Year/$DayInYear

and that starting from 2006 data, an additional path $RunNumber is appended before the file names. This was added to avoid having large directories (and therefore, slow directory look ups) on heavy loaded file system.

All log files goes to /star/rcf/prodlog/dev/log/daq. FastOffline runs out of the dev library which is associated to a production tag dev. Running from dev has its inconvenience (code must run) but this allows for code developers to see the result of their changes (hopefully improvements and bug correction) the next day as dev is released using the AutoBuild framework (see the Library release structure and policy  for more information as well as the code sanity pages and the AutoBuild last release report).

Conditions for jobs to start

FastOffline works by sampling the data as follows:

  • The system goes from the newest to the oldest run as they appear in HPSS and the online db. Several notes are in order
    • ANY runs marked bad by the Shift crew or RTS will NOT be picked nor processed by FastOffline.
      • Note: Runs marked questionable by the ShiftLeader or of unknown status could be picked by FastOffline if the other conditions below are met. Keep in mind that if the ShiftLeader marks the runs as bad late in the shift, FastOffline may have already processed the file at an earlier time when the status appeared to allow processing.
    • The file must have a minimum of MINEVT events to be sent for processing
      • Note: The rational behind this cut-off was in the early days that too many "tests" were taken with valid names but would all end-up to contain about 100 events or so. This number was set to 200 from 2006 onward.
    • The files MUST be present in HPSS for FastOffline to pick a run.
      • Note: If the online to offline migration of data is not possible or not done, the system will not be able to process any data.
    • ANY network interrupt will not allow for FastOffline to update its database (this is rare and inconsequential and mentioned for the sake of completeness)  [this has not happened since 2011]
    • ANY problems with the online db, mainly the database known as RunLog, will make FastOffline stop as well. As soon as the RunLog “sanity” is restored, FastOffline would resume as normal including periodic bootstrapping logic of all records which may have appeared during the downtime [database consolidation has made this category of problems go away]
      • Note: “sanity” includes slow downs due to db overload (anyone performing intense operations with the RunLog would kill or affect negatively FastOffline so, be attentive if you receive a request from the database leader in regards of usage). In other words, RunLog is a fundamental part of operational sanity of this system.
    • FastOffline relies on tables which are aggregated and migrated for sole use of FastOffline. This allows greatre scalability. However, if the migration daemons stop, FastOffline willl cease getting the vital information ite needs and hence ... stop as well.
      • Note: most tables needed by FastOffline are monitored here.
         
  • The system uses a finite number of nodes on the reconstruction farm. This number is adjustable within the limit of the farm size and the ongoing scheduled productions. It is also limited to the amount of disk space available for the system to work.
    Note that FastOffline bypass (see definition in the next bullet) processes all events in a given file when a file is selected which means that the average processing time depends on the type of collision, trigger mix etc ... The number of events to be processed is otherwise adjustable and set by the NUMEVT variable. From 2006 to 2009, this was set to 200 events per file to increase sampling.

Modes

  • FastOffline implements several specialized algorithm and treatments:
    • There are three basic treatments: regular mode, bypass and calibration.
      • The three treatment are NOT sharing the same queues in the reconstruction farm.
      • Any mode can be adjusted separately in terms of the resource taken.
      • Although the queue are separate, the reconstruction farm software checks the farm sanity as a whole. Any jobs not moving in a queue will stall the system entirely to avoid the job “vacuum effect”. Especially, HPSS sanity can greatly influence the system's ability to perform or a burst of job will lead to a pause.
      • Last, when the disk space available for FastOffline is beyond 95% occupancy, no more jobs submission may occur.
    • Calibration tasks have the highest priority over ALL FastOffline processes and are ALWAYS processed first to ensure calibration readiness when processing the real data.
    • Bypass is the ability to ask the system to bypass automatic processing and deal with specific runs processing (within any arbitrary chains) immediately and with high priority.
    • Data pre-processing is third in the priority order. There is only one pre-processing available to date. It was introduced in 2005 and known as “ezTree production”.
      • This pre-processing pass shares the same queue than the regular mode
      • Pre-processing passes are possible as it is fast and would not jeopardize the regular data production ; too many or too long jobs would prevent regular jobs from ever running (when the slots are filled, that is it)
      • Those passes may be set using their own chain options
      • This pre-processing stage was limited to a specific trigger setup name.
    • The regular mode comprise any other data processing tasks.
      Within this broad category, the resources were divided as follow up to 2007 (all numbers are adjustable).
      In 2008 onward, this queue division was disabled (mostly due to the appearance of too many streams).
      • 70% of the available slots will be used for express stream (if any exists). Note that express stream are defined as file type:
        express, jpsi, upsilon, muon and gamma
      • 30% for zerobias in all other cases
      • The remainder for any other physics runs
    • FastOffline also allows for different chains for different species. Within this restriction, the following applies for
      • Files named pedestal are permanently skipped
      • Trigger setups (names or trigger set) equal to pedestal or pulser will be permanently skipped
      • Run numbers which does not have a trigger setup name or a set of triggers associated to them will be temporarily skipped until the system is able to auto-adjust (update) its information
      • In regular mode, trigger setups named test or tune (2010 addition) are skipped. If you need FastOffline to process those, do not name them test nor tune. It is expected that individual test triggers included in production trigger setups are not funneled into the previously mentioned file streams processed by FastOffline.
      • Runs not containing TPC or TPX data are skipped in calibration and regular mode at the exception of the pre-processing passes (like ezTree etc ...)
  • FastOfflinekeeps on disk a 15 days (adjustable) worth production sample.
    • Files older than 15 days are automatically deleted from disk leaving space for newer ones.
    • Results should be on retrievable from HPSS (starting from 2005, it is the default to save a copy)


All of the above numbers are adjustable so this pseudo-policy may change any time. Note that ANY additional selections such as selections on the number of events in a file (minimum), the beam energy, the magnet field type, the collision or the trigger setup name may be used to sub-select a sample of files to be used in a pre-processing pass or otherwise new algorithm.


The gory details

You don't need to read this unless you are planning to help with production or understand how the system works ... It is simple. One needs to read perl only. But if you have read until here, it probably means you ant to know so here we go ...

2005 selection for ezTree

For example, ezTree processing in 2005 included

    • ppProductionMinBias trigger setup name only
    • Files NOT already processed by the regular FastOffline processing

This leads to a selection TrgSetup=='ppProductionMinBias' AND Status==0. The value of Status and meaning is as follow:

    • 0: the file is “new”
    • 1: the file was submitted to the queue
    • 2: the file has been processed. All went OK
    • 3: the file has been processed AND has been QA-ed (note: the QA system sets this value)
    • 4: the file was skipped
    • 5: the file was submitted for calibration. This value will be overwritten by regular processing.
    • 666: ... the jobs have died, disappeared or otherwise indicating a problem.

Ideally, you need to select ONLY on Status in (2,3). They are indicators of success (the rest being for internal bookkeeping only). Currently, the extended statuses for pre-processing are not updated to a value beyond 1. We can but one would need to know what to search for and parse from the logs to define success (it is not a framework limitation per say but any “decision” on OK or not implies a piece of code one has to write to validate the processing). Therefore, a safe assumption for selection pre-processed files from FastOffline is to check for Status in (2,3) AND XStatus$ID > 0 (where $ID is the ID assigned to you for your pre-processing pass i.e. 1 for ezTree, etc ...) and check for the presence of the expected output on disk.

Scripts layout

All scripts for FastOffline are located in $STAR_SCRIPTS or $STAR_CGI depending on usage. FastOffline heavily rely on

  • The presence of the RunLog database on onldb.star.bnl.gov
  • The copy of daqFileTag table into that database (initial thanks to Jeff Porter for this copy which simplifies SQL queries)
  • The presence of the tables daqSummary, beamInfo, magField in that same database.
  • The field name in each of those tables.
  • Any of the first section caveats and/or requirements

Everything is concentrated in one unique perl module named RunDAQ.pm. Scripts developed around are merely using methods available via this module so, one change in the module, all changes (including one mistake = all broken).

DAQFill.pl

Invoked in a cronjob via the DAQFill.csh, the sole purpose of this script is to read the online database and build a condensed summary information related to new records as they come (table DAQInfo. The perl script SHOULD NOT be invoked from the crontab since it works in an infinite loop mode of period 60 seconds.
At every cycle, only new records are updated. However, the current scheme meant to save precious time also causes to lose file sequences (this is a synchronization online/offline issue, nothing to do with FastOffline itself). Therefore, this script currently has an update mode where all records are scanned and missed ones are merged with the old ones.
There are currently 3 modes of operation for the csh wrapper :

  • ./DAQFill.csh Clean : kills all running jobs. The purpose of this mode is to clean hanged processes not listed by a ps -ef has it happens whenever AFS experience a hick-up. This mode is executed twice a day. This has not been really necessary since 2004 but kept for those rare events which tends to happen whenever no-one is looking ...
  • ./DAQFill.csh Update: Update mode scans all records in the online database since the last check and inserts in Fast-offline database any records it does not already have. This mode is run twice a day, just after the Clean mode. This mode starts the perl script with the first parameter=0 (which means no loop) without checking for the presence of another process. Logically, it should be placed after the Clean.
  • ./DAQFill.csh Run : This is executed once every 10 minutes. However, the wrapper detaches the DAQFill.pl script only if does not find another process with the same name. The script is invoked with parameter=1, a loop mode of time specified by the second argument of the wrapper (and second of the perl script as well). The default time is one scan every 60 seconds. The crontabs currently specifies 300 seconds. It makes no sens to make this time parameter greater than the laps time between 2 wrapper execution.
    This mode updates the records based on the last entry. Last entry involves the run number only (that's why we may lose records as whenever we query for a run, some of the file sequence may not be ready but our internal counters moves forward).

All cron-jobs are currently running under starreco and on rcas6003. Note that the csh wrapper MUST be running on a Linux box or a box where the auwx options of the ps command are available.

JobSubmit.pl

This script takes care of submitting job description files to the CRS queue system. It MUST therefore run under the following conditions

  • On one of the rcsuser nodes
  • The crs_status.pl and crs_submit.pl script MUST function (hopefully, this is true).

The current cronjobs are running under starreco on rcrsuser4.
There are 2 useful lines in this crontab :

  • ./JobSubmit.pl dev -1 /star/data09/reco : tells fastOffline use dev as the library version, -1 (i.e. all) events found in a given file,with all output going to /star/data09/reco as a base path. Base-path means that a structure will be created from that point.
  • Note that the syntax allows for disk spanning. Disk spanning can be specified by using a syntax similar to
    ./JobSubmit.pl dev -1 /star/data+09-11/reco : this will be submitted as-is (only disk space will be checked), the disk spanning resolution will be delegated to the reconstruction wrapper code bfcca. In our example, any disk from /star/data09 to /star/data11 (that is any number XX in [09,11] for /star/dataXX) will be used.
  • ./JobSubmit.pl dev -1 1 : this special syntax specifies that the queue should be scanned for terminated jobs and the jobfiles moved into the archive directory.
  • ./JobSubmit.pl dev -1 C/star/data09/reco . This line processes calibration passes. All priorities are set internally to the JobSubmit.pl script.
  • ./JobSubmit.pl dev -1 Z/star/data09/reco . This line is used for the special processing bypass (ezTree for example). All settings are internal to JobSubmit.pl . Especially, the trigger setupname to be used for this pass is a restrictive parameter.
  • ./JobSubmit.pl dev -1 X/star/data13/Magellan:balewski . Mode "X" was introduced in 2011 data taking to pipe a portion of the data to a different disk. In this case, part of the data was moved to /star/data13/Magellan and the ownership changed as indicated. This out-sourcing mode as been used in a seldom manner.

Some syntax options while invoking this script :

  • You DO NOT have to know the number of jobs it can submit. There are NO CHANGES necessary. The only assumption is that FastOffline will be running om some queues of the crs nodes. The script will figure out what that means ...
  • The default assumed chain is assumed is declared by collision in an associative array named DCHAIN (default chain). This be overridden by specifying the next argument of the command line calling (i.e. argument 4).
  • There is provision for a 5th argument = collision tag which purpose is to exclude any collision tag different than the specified one. The default implemented values are AuAu and PPPP. Note that if the collider changes the collisions tag, we are doomed (or need to declare extraneous chains to treat those).
  • There are 2 mode of submission even in what we named the regular mode
    • by default, the submission will go from top (last run entered in the database) to bottom (first run entered in the database). During periods when we have nothing new, the submission will proceed in submitting EVERYTHING it finds. In heavy acquisition mode, this script will function as expected (sampling the data as it comes), however, at the end of the year of acquisition and/or in between active times, it will also proceed in processing the rest of the runs.
    • This may be unwanted (especially at the end of the run, FastOffline not being a replacement for production). The second mode can therefore be switch on. This is achieved by specifying a restoration path preceded by a ^ character (a-la perl, this symbol means "anchor with start of"). This can be switched at crontab level of course. In this mode of submission, only the latest files will be returned by the RunDAQ.pm modules and the submission system will NOT run a job already run again. FastOffline will therefore not crawl down from latest to earliest runs.

FastOffCheck.pl

This script is still in development mode. It is meant to be executed regularly from a cronjob. Its purpose is to scan archive directory for finished jobs, compare the list with what is available in the target/destination directory and mark the entries in the DAQInfo table as processed. This is used for hand-shaking with QA (and let them know what is done or not). Possible arguments are the library version then the target directory to scan. Note that the standard directory structure is assumed. This script must be executed from a node which has access to both /star/u/starreco and the target directory. It is currently running under starreco on rcas6003.

RunDAQ.pm

RunDAQ.pm is the perl module at the heart of FastOffline processing. This module does about everything by providing other scripts (DAQFill.pl , JobSubmit.pl ) function interface.

Function interfaces

All functions are documented in the module itself. Documentation is maintained in the code header and will not be replicated here. Click here to get more information.

How can I make a selection using RunDAQ.pm

In principle, you do not need to know SQL to use the module. Many selections are handled through defining a perl associative array of conditions with values and operator and pass it as-is to the methods accepting such argument and all queries will be generated for you.

  • For example, setting $Cond{“Status”} = 0 implies a constraints where the db field Status will need to be equal to zero for the records to be selected.
  • When a value is assigned, you may use operators such as > (greater than), < (lesser than), or ! (not equal). For example, $Cond{“TrgSetup”} = “!12” would be mean anything but 12.
  • The | (logical or) may also be used to select several values like 12|14|17.
  • Bitwise operation are also handled automatically within a syntax using the : character. For example, :2 means that from the selected field, the second bit has to be true. Maybe a problem to some extent, bitwise operations and selection has to be on specific values only (multiple bits selection is not yet implemented). Also, it is done on numerical values ... but the fields using bitwise coding are fields which may potentially carry lots of possible values (like detector setup or trigger setup). Functions exists to convert string to numbers however so, this is not a problem (the multiple selection is perhaps). If needed, please send me an Email requesting the extension.
  • Round offs are taken care off internally by conversion routines. You can specify for example an approximate beam energy as displayed by the FastOffline browser. This allows for consistency of treatment of the precision.

Table structures, initializing a new year

Tables exists in the operation database and are:

  • DAQInfo - the main table containing all information about files, run, number of events and status of the FastOffline processing (field Status). Note that Status are given by rdaq_status_string which may take as valueone of the following
    • 0: 000 : unknown
    • 1: 001 : Submitted
    • 2: 010 : Processed
    • 3: 011 : QADone   
    • 4: 100 : Skipped 
    • 5         : SCalib (used for calibration)
    • 6         : FCalib (used for Fast calibration)
    • 111     : Marked bad
    • 666     : Died
    Ideally, those codes are internal or for external use (QA) and may be changed. Especially, the mask model has not been followed for statuses > 3 (calibration may set bits later on the upper range).
  • Other tables are dictionary tables allowing for fast list building and indirect search. They are self maintained by the system and should not be tempered with unless you really (really) know what you are doing. They are:
    • FOChains             - this will hold a historical list of chains used in the process
    • FODetectorTypes - this will hold all detectors found and build masks
    • FOFileType           - will hold the kind of files i.e. physics, pedestal, etc ...
    • FOLocations         - this table will tell you where the files are processed
    • FOMessages        - this table will hold all internal to the system's messages broadcast via rdaq_set_message.
    • FOruns                 - list of run numbers for the year
    • FOTriggerBits       - list of individual triggers contained ina run. Masks will be build from this information.
    • FOTriggerSetup    - list of run configuration trigger setup
    • DAQInfo               - this table wil contain a copy of all information from the RunLog

 

bfcca

Because the CRS queue system is only a job-description based system, an extraneous script needs to be used in order to handle the running pass of root4star. There are many bfcXXX scripts around and we tried to make this one as general as possible.
The help was moved here: bfcca.

Production Status for run 2010



 

Production path name convention

Production path for real data

Production path for real data inherites some parts from raw data pathes and has edditional information related to trigger set, magnatic field and production series. Conventional name is:

/TOP_DIRECTORY/reco/trigger_set/magnetic_field/production_series/year_of_run/day_of_data_taken
and added ../run_number subdirectory for year 2006 and next years.

Trirger set name is defined by trigger group in the online data taken.

Examples of real data production path:

  • /home/starreco/reco/cuProductionMinBias/ReversedFullField/P05id/2005/060
  • /home/starreco/reco/2007ProductionMinBias/FullField/P08ic/2007/104/8104044

Here:
-cuProductionMinBias and 2007ProductionMinBias are the names of trigger sets, description could be found on the pages:

trigger set for run year 2005
tigger set for run year 2007
-P05id and P08ic - reconstruction production series
-060 and 104 - days of data taken
-8104044 - run number

 

Production path for simulation data

Name of path for MC data should contain fundamental definition of parameters set used for simulation and be standardized for automated cataloging.
MC path includes 7 subdirectories, each of them definds certain parameters and simulation options:

/TOP_DIRECTORY/reco/collision/event_generator_and_version/parameters/magnetic_field_or_parameters/year_of_geometry/hadronic.int_code/production_series

Examples of MC data path:

  • /home/starreco/reco/auau200/hijing_1.382/b0_3/fullfield/year2004/gheisha_on/p05ie
  • /home/starreco/reco/auau200/hijing_1.382/b0_20/halffield/year2004/gcalor_on/p05ie
  • /home/starreco/reco/pp200/pythia_6.205/default/fullfield/year2004/gheisha_on/p05ie
  • /home/starreco/reco/pp200/pythia6_410/11_15gev/cdf_a/y2007g/gheisha_on/p08ie

The meaning of notation is:

- auau200 - auau collisions with energy = 200GeV;
- pp200 - pp collisions with energy = 200GeV;
- hijing_1.382 - hijing event generator, version 1.382 was used for simulation;
- pythia_6.205 - pythia event generator, version 6.205 was used for simulation;
- b0_3 - impact parameter b is in the range 0-3 fm;
- 11_15gev - pt trigger interval;
- fullfield (halffield) - full or half magnetic field was used in simultaion;
- year2004 (y2007g) - geometry version used for simultaion;
- gheisha_on(gcalor_on) - GHEISHA or GCALOR code was used for simulation of hadronic interactions;
- p05ie - production series;

In the subdirectory "/parameters/" any parameters could be specified, other subdirectories should be defined according to conventional name.

For GEANT simulation files subdirectory "production_series" should be replaced by name "gstardata";

 

Production path name for embedding data

Name of path for embedding production follow name of path for real data production (some part) plus have information about embedded particle name and ID of embedding request. The path name has next structure:
TOP_DIRECTORY/embedding/trigger_set_name/particle_NNN_requestID/production.library/year/day
and added ../run_number subdirectory for year 2006 and next years.
 

Example of embedding data path:

  • /home/starreco/embedding/cuProductionMinBias/Omega_703_1179173304/P06ib.SL06b/2005/050

Here:
- cuProductionMinBias is trigger set name;
- Omega_703_1179173304 name of embedded particle (Omega) and request ID;
- P06ib.SL06b real data production series and library version used for embedding production;
- 2005 is year of real data taken;
- 050 is day of data taken;

  • P06ib, run with library SL06b and ITTF code;
    no SVT & SSD in reconstruction, TOF processing includes only raw data;
    Production used multiple vertices finder code which handle pile-up events at high luminosity; EMC track matching was used for vertex ranking;
    run numbers >= 6031103 have been processed which have good EMC calibrations;
    run numbers without EMC detector in WERE NOT processed in this production.
  • P07ib, run with library SL07b and ITTF code with TPC+SVT+SSD tracking for run numbers with complete tracking detectors set; production was running with TPC tracking only (TPC+SVT or TPC+SSD tracking) if both detectors SVT & SSD or one of them were not present;
    Production has problem due to bug in EMC & SSD codes caused memory overwriting in some events; production will be droped;
  • P07ic, run with library SL07c and ITTF code with TPC+SVT+SSD tracking for run numbers with complete tracking detectors set; production was running with TPC tracking only (TPC+SVT or TPC+SSD tracking) if both detectors SVT & SSD or one of them were not present; bug in EMC & SSD codes caused memory overwriting has been fixed.

next deterctors are on: tpc, svt, tof, emc, ftpc, pmd, eemc, bsmd, esmd but set of detectors varies with run numbers.
corrections included in the reconstruction: Shorted Ring correction, sectors alignment, ExB correction, ExB 2D shape correction, ExB twist correction, clock correction, padRow 13 distortion, Field Cage correction, EbyE space charge and Grid Leak corrections.
Run numbers from the range 5069085 - 5072056 have been excluded from the production due to corrupted SVT & FTPC raw data and calibration problem.
Run numbers below 5042040 for productionMid/High/Low have 'minbias' trigger ID 15007 which isn't really 'minbias' but has 50% of central cut.
DO NOT USE trigger ID = 15007 for run numbers < 5042040

STAR Geometry in simulation & reconstruction

STAR First Cut and Production Geometries

Follow the link below to find the list of geometries implemented for a given year / RHIC run.  In general, the most recent version of the geometry (highest letter) should be used for simulations.   The availability of the geomtries in a given library (geometry.so or xgeometry.so) is indicated in the table.  NOTE:  xgeometry.so is preferred for all production geometries since 2006.  We do not support geometries after 2011 in the old geometry.so library.

The geometry naming scheme is as follows:

Geometry tags take the form Y<year><revision> or Y<year>_<configuration><revision> where <year> is  the 4-digit year, <revision> is a single letter denoting a  different approximation of the detector in a given year, and <configuration> denotes a distinct reconfiguration of the detector.  e.g. HFT installed or out.

  • First cut geometry tags (e.g. y2010, y2011, etc... ) are the first approximation to the STAR detector, suitable for online production.  Minor changes which should not affect tracking may occur during the run.
  • Production geometry tags (e.g. y2010a, y2010b, ... y2013_1a, y2013_2a, etc...) are denoted by a trailing letter appended to the first cut tag.  Once established, these geometries will be frozen in the DEV library, forming a reference for the production which used them.  In general, the latest geometry tag will be the best approximation of the STAR detector.
  • Asymptotic geometry tags (e.g. y2004y,  y2010x, y2013_1x, y2013_2x, etc...) are tags with a trailing "X" or "Y" in their name.  These are TEST geometries, whose definition in DEV may change without notice, and should not be used in data production, simulation, embedding or offline analysis.

bfcca

This document describes the arguments for bfcca located in $STAR_SCRIPTS, a production script interface to the CRS reconstruction software and bfc.C. Please, refer to this page for the syntax of a job description ; this document will assume you are accustom to the syntax and will only describe the features implemented in bfcca itself.

bfcca is a script interface which handles running a chain, running a calibration pass and/or a chain and moving data to its final location. It includes features such as writ ting to local disk during run, log file compression, displaying information about the node the job runs on etc ... and will later be extended with automatic insertion of information in a FileCatalog.

 

Module requirements

This perl wrapper requires a few perl module, most of which are installed by default unless specified otherwise in the below list. If anything goes wrong with loading a module, please, check that you are using the proper perl version and have the modules installed.

use File::Basename;
use File::Copy;
use Sys::Hostname;
use Digest::MD5;

Digest:MD5;                             this one is to be checked and is not installed by default ...

General options

The arguments of this script are as follows:

  1. int An option-mask
    The mask has the following meaning

    bit

    Component

    Meaning

    1

    IO mode

    0 regular IO (immediate/un-buffered)
    1 delayed STD IO (+1)

    2 Tag file copy  0 No copy
    1 Copy file to /star/data20/tags (+2)

    3

    Code Optimization

    0 non-optimized
    1 optimized (+4)

    4-5

    Compression

    00 uncompressed STDOUT/STDERR
    01 compressed STDOUT (+8)
    10 compressed STDERR (+16)

    6-7 Copy files to DD
    (XRootD)

    00 Not going to copy any file to DD
    01 only picodst file will be copied to DD (+32)
    10 only mudst file will be copied to DD (+64)
    11 both, picodst and mudst files will be copied to DD (+96)
     
    Since this variable is a bitmask, you need to sum the options altogether. For example, if you want to chose delayed IO mode (+1) along with running in optimized mode (+4) and have the output compressed for both STDOUT (+8) and STDERR (+16), your final option is therefore 0+1+4+8+16=29.
     
  2. string a libVersion
    Can be one of dev, new, pro, old or any version understood by the starver command (for example, SL01l or 01l are both valid. There is a second syntax for the library version using some special values :
    1. cal. This pseudo-version will make the script to use what is compiled in the test-calibration area /afs/rhic.bnl.gov/star/packages/cal in conjunction with the dev area.
    2. An extension and a more general syntax for this mode is the use of Version-cal . This syntax allows to use the cal area in conjunction with ANY library Version. However, the Version in this case MUST be a fully specified library version. For example, SL02b-cal is valid but new-cal is NOT valid.
       
  3. string a destination path A path where the produced output stream have to be moved. Note the following side effects :
    outputstreamtype outputdir destination Effect
    UNIX . i.e. local directory . Output streams will will be ignored and lost
    UNIX . PATH Output streams will be created on local disk and then moved to the final destination $PATH
    HPSS HPSSPATH . or ./ The choice of a local directory for $PATH will lead to ignore moving the outputstream. The files will be saved in HPSS only.
    HPSS HPSSPATH PATH Output streams will be copied to HPSS in $HPSSPATH, in $HPSSPATH the base string /home/starreco will be substituted by $PATH. This means that $PATH only needs to specify a disk name (such as /star/data18). The directory thereafter /home/starreco will be preserved as-is on disk

    The PATH syntax may be specified as a range. A range specification has one restriction: it has to follow the following syntax (which may happen at any place in the specified string): ANY(character)+"+"+#number+”-”+#number+ANY(character). For example, the following path specifies ranges
    /star/data+14-15 : Any disk between /star/data14 to /star/data15 will be picked
    /star/data+23-27/reco : the number may appear anywhere and the final path will be any of /star/dataXX/reco where XX stands for a number between 23 and 27.
    The algorithm is a random picking of a disk with occupancy below 98%. If this threshold criteria is not met, the disk with the largest available space is chosen. Note that the destination choice is made only at the end of the processing.
     
  4. A number of event description. This input takes 2 form :
    (1) int the number-of-events to run 0 or -1 both have the meaning of all events i.e. bfcca will internally set the number of events as being large so the chain will cover all events recorded in a daq file.
    (2) int1-int2 (i.e. With a dash in between) will tell bfcca to run bfc.C from event int1 to event int2.
     
  5. string the chain-option(s)
    a list of chain options ...

Later, we needed to extend this wrapper with some special features so the input (5) has been reshaped to accept special characters triggering special treatments. In those cases, all of the other options are shifted. It is better explained in the examples below but for now, let's review the possibilities in the next table:


Special Character Mode Expected arguments
 / Alternate script mode The next argument after "/" will be a script to run instead of bfc.C, all subsequent arguments will be passed to that script as is. Note : string arguments will passed stringified. You should NOT add quotes around strings. Short example:
25,dev,/star/data05,-1,/,StMuDstMaker.C,0,1,1000, st_physics_2270049_raw_0088.event.root
The disadvantage of this mode is that you have to pass the arguments known a-priori (which breaks the philosophy of a job description)
+ Alternate script mode with periodic input The next argument after the "+" will be an input periodicity or modulo. What it will do is call the script with all of the other argument but the last which will be replaced by the input given as per the job description. In other words, it will loop on all inputs and call the script separately for each call. The periodicity is used to take one input every 'period'.
For example, if your chain needs to only read and scan over an event.root file BUT requires the presence of a tags.root file, the periodicity you would use is 2 .
@ Alternate script with fixed generic output filename. In this mode, arguments before the "@" are passed as expected and must be specified as usual .
After "@", the expected arguments are the name of a script to run instead of bfc.C following by an argument which will be used as the very last argument of your script. Typically, this could be a an output filename which will be passed as the last argument to the script.
An example is given in the below example list ...
~ Addiitonal setup scripts may be run. This mode is intended for passing additional setup commands to bfc before running the jobs. All arguments until the next "~" will be considered as setup options. In addition, arguments will have any "-" replaced by space. The chain options will resume normally afterward. An example is provided below.

Examples :

  • 1,dev,/star/data13/reco/dev/2001/11,-1,P2001a
    The option-mask is 1 i.e. the first bit is at 1 that is the standard outputs will be used in delayed mode (the output will appear only after the job ends).
    The libVersion is dev which means that we will be running from stardev
    The destination is a fully specified path. Without looking at the full job description, difficult to see whatit will do. In this job, the outputdir were chosen to be . which means that first, the files will be produced on the reconstruction farm local disk and only after, moved to the exact location /star/data13/reco/dev/2001/11
    number-of-events is -1 so all events from inputfile will be processed
    The chain-option is PP2001

  • 1,eval,/star/data13/reco/dev/2011/XX,-1,~,gcc-4.51,~,P2011
    This example is indentical to the previous one in nature except that the "~" mode is used. Before executing the chain P2011 and switching to the eval area, the command "setup gcc 4.51" will be executed, changing the compiler version and envrionment to be used. Please, be sure to verify which setup command exists in STAR.

  • 5,SL01k,/star/data18,-1,ry2001,DbV1107,in,tpc_daq,tpc,rich,l3onl,Physics, Kalman,AlignSectors,Cdst,tags,Tree,evout,ExB,OBmap,OClock,OPr13,OTwist
    The option-mask is 5, that is 1+4. 1 is delayed IO as before, +4 is ton run the code in optimised mode
    The libVersion is SL01k so the code will run from the SL01k library version
    The destination is here a disk path /star/data18. In this job, the outputdir where specified as HPSS file (i.e. outputstreamtype were HPSS) so the path specified by outputdir will be substituted. For example, an HPSS path such as /home/starreco/reco/productionCentral/ReversedHalfField/P01gk/2001/308 will lead to store the file on local disk as wel in the (in our example) /star/data18/reco/productionCentral/ReversedHalfField/P01gk/2001/308
    number-of-events is -1 ; as in the preceeding example, all available events will be processed. There several chain-options chosen here. All will be passed as-is to bfc.C.
     
  • 5,SL01k,.,-1,p2001
    Comparing to the preceeding example, there are 2 changes :
    The destination path is chosen as being a local path .. When this jobs ends, storage to HPSS will be done but there will be NO copy of the outputstream anywhere.
    In addition, a reduced chain p2001 is chosen.
  • 25,dev,/star/data05,-1,+,2,StMuDstMaker.C,0,1,1000,-
    The option-mask is set to 25 which is 16+8+1 i.e. both standard input and output will be compressed and all IO to those files will be made in delayed mode. Then, the final disk destination is chosen to be /star/data05 .
    The mode used is "+" indicating a periodicity mode. Periodicity applies to the input you have selected for the job description and is specified on the next argument. However, the script to be run is the next argument and in this case, StMuDstMaker.C . This script will be called with arguments 0,1,1000 and the last argument "-" will be replaced by each input file modulo, 2 in our case. This means that only one inut every two will be passed to the selected script and replace the the last argument "-". This mode may be used if your script requires only one file as input but requires the presence of other files (this is common in STAR as the IOMaker assumes and checks for the presence of other files based on the chain options used and the extensions).

  • 25,dev,/star/data05/,2001-3000,@,bfc.C,GenericOutName.root,dAuMDC,tofsim,beamLine
    The first part of the options is as in the previous example.
    Inspecting the options further, we use the special flag "@" which is documentedin the above table as being the alternate script mode with fixed generic output filename. However, the next argument is bfc.C (still) in this exmaple (nothing prevents us from running bfc.C as alternate script). The next argument is GenericOutName.root. This argument will be passed to bfc.C as the last argument. The chain is befing dAuMDC,tofsim,beamLine used otherwise. In other words, what will be run is
             bfc.C(2001,3000,"dAuMDC,tofsim,beamLine",$INPUTFILE,"GenericOutName.root")
    This could be used to (for example), run over a large input file and split the reconstructions in sequence of events. In our example, we run on events 2001 to 3000 and select the output filename (no automated generation of output filename).

Notes:

  • Delayed IO mode should be always used. This avoid useless NFS traffic during running. In this mode, both log and error file appears created in stdoutdir and stderrdir directories respectively. However, the real content will be visible only after a job ends. Before this happens, the job is NFS problems insensitive (see above for more information).
  • If the output streams are of the UNIX type, a local directory syntax should be used for the same reason of avoiding NFS traffic during run time.
  • The copy of a file to its final destination only occurs at the end of a job. Several things here one needs to know : first, the directory tree is automatically created ; there is NO NEED to pre-create the directory tree. Second, if an NFS problem occurs before the job ends, bfcca will not be able to see the directory of the file final destination. bfcca will retry the copy every 2 minutes for a total of 24 hours after which, it will give up and display an Error message.
  • In case of a copy to a 100% full disk, bfcca will currently fail to copy the file and WILL NOT retry. Later, we will modify the script to include a detection of this condition.
  • Compression is done using gzip. Currently, only compression of the standard output is supported. This will be extended to the standard error as well later. Note that if the gzip does not exists on the machine where the job is running, bfcca will revert to un-compressed IO mode.

Setting up an alternate DB server or loadBalancer

In principle, the presence of $HOME/dbServers.xml would make our software pick this file as database configuration file. However, on the CRS nodes, the $HOME directory of the starreco is not its regular home-directory. bfcca will however respect this mechanism by using the STDB_SERVERS environment variable and setting it to the appropriate value.

In addition, note that bfcca if provided with an input file of type UNIX with a name matching /Loadbalancer/, this file will be ignored to first order except that the environment variable DB_SERVER_LOCAL_CONFIG will be over-written with the file name as value. For more information on this variable, consult Configuration File. When this mechanism is enabled, the use of $HOME/dbServers.xml as a possibility is by-passed.

Example:

inputstreamtype[1]=UNIX 
inputdir[1]=/afs/rhic.bnl.gov/star/packages/conf 
inputfile[1]=dbLoadBalancerLocalConfig_nightly.xml

This example would indicate to bfcca to ignore this input to first order (it will not be passed to the executable) and consider the file dbLoadBalancerLocalConfig_nightly.xml located in /afs/rhic.bnl.gov/star/packages/conf as an alternate configuration file for running.

<br />

Calibration pass or calibration directory usage

In addition, bfcca has the ability of running a calibration pass before a run pass or create a calibration directory on the farm local disk (or via a soft-link to an NFS area). Note that a single calibration pass alone may be accomplished by using the regular options and the appropriate chain-option(s). The mechanism is described as follow :

If one of the inputdir of type UNIX contains the string StarDb, this input is ignored and the inputfile is parsed. Several cases are then possible, in all cases, the file specified by inputfile MUST exists (remember that a staging is done for all input streams and, in the case of UNIX staging, the file presence is required).

  • Any value : the inputfile is ignored and a directory ./StarDb is created as a soft-link to inputdir in the local directory where the job will be running. Therefore, the full chain (the only yhing which will be running in this case) will be using the calibration files located in $inputdir/StarDb if any.
  • A value prefixed by Pre (example : PreTpcT0)
    The content of the inputfile is read. A calibration pass will run PRIOR from running the chain. This pre-pass will use the chain as EXACTLY specified in the inputfile. The later specified chain-option(s) specified by executableargs will be used for the regular chain. A local directory ./StarDb will also be created using a soft-link.
  • A value prefixed by One (example : OneSpaceCharge)
    This is almost the same than the previous case but the ./StarDb directory will be created locally to the node where the job will run (no soft-link involved here). The result of the calibration pass will be lost as the job description require that the file to be saved are known by name at submission time. This is typically used for a pass requiring a seed.
  • A value prefixed by Opt (example : OptTpcT0)
    As before, the content of inputfile will be used for the calibration options AND a local directory ./StarDb will be created. However, the chain-option(s) will be completely ignored and ONLY a calibration pass will be run.
    This mode can be replaced by a single dedicated pass using the appropriate chain-option(s) and ignoring the output streams.

Example:

inputstreamtype[1]=UNIX
inputdir[1]=/star/data13/reco/StarDb
inputfile[1]=PreTpcT0

In this example, inputfile is pre-fixed by Pre so a pre-calibration pass is requested. A local directory ./StarDb will be created and remain for the duration of the run (calibration and real-chain execution), the content of the file /star/data13/reco/StarDb/PreTpcT0 used as the calibration options. In the above example, the content was simply in TpcT0 RY2001 so the calibration pass would use those options.

Note:

In the above example, the CRS node needs to see the file /star/data13/reco/StarDb/PreTpcT0 for the staging to be a success. The job may fail in case of NFS problems. This IS NOT a misfeature but an advantage since it would be hazardous to have the job move along in case of NFS problems (jobs would inconsistently be running a calibration pass or not).

Displayed information and messages

bfcca displays some informative messages about the job before and after a chain is executed. The header of each log file will contain a tabulated summary information showing the chain options you have asked, the requested output streams name (initial and as it should be at the end) as well as information about the node, CPU speed, directory where the job is running, node it is running on etc ...

After the header, the messages are of the form

bfcca:: Severity: message

where Severity can be on of Info, Warning or Error. Messages related to copying files are for example of Severity=Info, missing files (chain did not produce what was declared in the job description) are of the kind Severity=Warning while any failure (directory creation, file cleaning etc ...) are considered Error. Note that on Severity=Error are displayed in the error file (STDERR) while others are displayed in the log file (STDOUT).
