Set Up Pipeline Run

from: DC2 Management -> Running the Pipeline at NCSA -> Setting Up the Run Directory.

The following information is no longer current

To set up a new directory tree with a new run id:

You'll need two things. First, you'll need a unique run id to identify the test run; something on the order of DG0003 will work.

You'll also need a list of the D4 exposures as a text file; something like

704893 333.882541667 -17.7351666667 i 52795.5802196
704894 333.886333333 -17.7371111111 i 52795.5871805
704895 333.886333333 -17.7371111111 i 52795.5894142
704896 333.888375 -17.7332222222 i 52795.5960833
704897 333.884583333 -17.7315833333 i 52795.6028804
705197 333.881375 -17.7351944444 i 52796.5804880
705198 333.882833333 -17.7393611111 i 52796.5881305
705199 333.88575 -17.7365833333 i 52796.5955167
705308 333.882541667 -17.7346666667 r 52797.5826911
705309 333.879583333 -17.7355277778 r 52797.5878048

where only the first field in each line matters (to the script; the remainder will be important for the event generator script). There's a ten-line example in .../DC2root/linker/short.data.

  • Go to /share/lsst9/DC2root
  • Execute python linker.py {runid} {exposurelist}
  • In about a minute, you should have:
    • A new database named using your runid;
    • A directory structure at /share/lsst9/DC2root/{runid}
    • A copy of the exposure list at /share/lsst9/DC2root/{runid}/exposure.list
