 lcg-ls -l -b -D srmv2 srm://bsrm-1.t2.ucsd.edu:8443/srm/v2/server?SFN=/hadoop/cms/store/user/tmartin/  or   srmls -2 -delegate=false  srm://bsrm-1.t2.ucsd.edu:8443/srm/v2/server?SFN=/hadoop/cms/store/user/tmartin 

MC Production and Local Scope DBS

  • Production User Portal

For running user-level production, the URL to the portal is https://yuan.ucsd.edu/production_request. The x509 certificate needs to be stored in the web browser to enable the access. Normally you import PKCS#12 file of the certificate to the browser. If you can't find the PKCS#12 file when you first received the x509 certificate, you can use following command to create one (named MyCert? .p12) based on your x509 certficate the key

     openssl pkcs12 -export -in usercert.pem -inkey userkey.pem -out MyCert.p12 -name "my x509 cert" 

The portal allows to run small- and mid-scale production based on ProdAgent? and GlideinWMS system with full detector simulation and reconstruction. The MC production will be run on USCMS Tier-2 and a few Tier-3 sites. The output will be stored at UCSD storage system and published at local DBS deployed at UCSD.

The data discovery of the local DBS is http://ming.ucsd.edu/data_discovery. The instance to be published is "dbs_2009". To access the datasets published at this local DBS by crab, the crab configuration needs to refer to the local DBS interface, http://ming.ucsd.edu:8080/DBS1/servlet/DBSServlet.

  • Local DBS

The local DBS is implemented to support data publication via Crab or ProdAgent? . For Crab, the publication or access the local DBS can be set up by adding following to the [USER] section in the crab.cfg

For old version of DBS (DBS_1_0_8)

        dbs_url_for_publication = http://ming.ucsd.edu:8080/DBS/servlet/DBSServlet       
        dbs_url = http://ming.ucsd.edu:8080/DBS/servlet/DBSServlet 

For new version of DBS (DBS_2_0_4)

        dbs_url_for_publication = http://ming.ucsd.edu:8080/DBS1/servlet/DBSServlet       
        dbs_url = http://ming.ucsd.edu:8080/DBS1/servlet/DBSServlet 

Data discovery for above two DBS instances is


To look at the datasets bookept by DBS, you need to choose "instance" in the selection manual, "dbs_2008" corresponds to the old DBS, "dbs_2009" corresponds to the new DBS.

For newest version of DBS (DBS_2_0_8) or later

        dbs_url_for_publication = http://ming.ucsd.edu:8080/DBS2/servlet/DBSServlet       
        dbs_url = http://ming.ucsd.edu:8080/DBS2/servlet/DBSServlet 

The data discovery of the newest DBS is


Currently please use DBS_2_0_8 for analysis and dataset publication. Any user dataset in the old DBS can be migrated to the latest instance. Please contact us if you need migration.
