Local Computing

Changed:

All new users will have access to a home directory on the ppe system, of the form /home/"username".

All new account/e-mail passwords should be changed immediately after they are issued. To change your PPE account password, type yppasswd at the terminal. You will then be prompted to enter your old password and a new password (twice for confirmation). Choose a secure password (a mixture of upper/lower case letters, numbers and punctuation/symbols) which you can remember.

New users should contact Shane Kelly by e-mail (room 238, s.kelly@gla.ac.uk) in order to be placed on the PPE mailing list.

Please see IT/AccountCreation for more details about local user accounts.
  Below are instructions on setting up locally, so that one might run an Athena job from a Glasgow desktop.

Athena Releases at Glasgow

Changed:
<

Glasgow PPE machines have CVMFS (CERN Virtual Machine File System) installed on them, which allows very efficient access to all current ATLAS releases. Access to releases (and other useful ATLAS software) is done with the setupATLAS command, itself hosted on CVMFS.

N.B.: We will endevour to keep this page up to date with recent Atlas software releases.

Current Atlas Release: v14

Glasgow PPE machines have CVMFS (CERN Virtual Machine File System) installed on them, which allows very efficient access to all current ATLAS releases. Access to releases (and other useful ATLAS software) is done with the setupATLAS command, itself hosted on CVMFS. To use setupATLAS do this (bash, ksh, zsh):

Release 14.2.25.5

>
export ATLAS_LOCAL_ROOT_BASE=/cvmfs/atlas.cern.ch/repo/ATLASLocalRootBase
alias setupATLAS='source ${ATLAS_LOCAL_ROOT_BASE}/user/atlasLocalSetup.sh'

or this (csh, tcsh):

setenv ATLAS_LOCAL_ROOT_BASE /cvmfs/atlas.cern.ch/repo/ATLASLocalRootBase
alias setupATLAS 'source ${ATLAS_LOCAL_ROOT_BASE}/user/atlasLocalSetup.csh'

(Usually it's best to add these lines to your shell's startup scipts, e.g., .bashrc.)

Then run setupATLAS:

ppepc145:~$ setupATLAS
...Type localSetupAGIS to setup AGIS
...Type localSetupDQ2Client to use DQ2 Client
...Type localSetupEmi to use emi
...Type localSetupFAX to use FAX
...Type localSetupGanga to use Ganga
...Type localSetupGcc to use alternate gcc
...Type localSetupMana to setup mana
...Type localSetupPacman to use Pacman
...Type localSetupPandaClient to use Panda Client
...Type localSetupPyAMI to setup pyAMI
...Type localSetupPoD to setup Proof-on-Demand
...Type localSetupROOT to setup (standalone) ROOT
...Type localSetupRucio to setup Rucio
...Type localSetupXRootD to setup XRootD
...Type showVersions to show versions of installed software
...Type asetup to setup a release (changeASetup to change asetup version)
...Type rcSetup to setup an ASG release (changeRCSetup to change rcSetup ver.)
...Type diagnostics for diagnostic tools
...Type helpMe for more help
...Type printMenu to show this menu

Please see ATLASLocalRootBase documentation for more information.

asetup

After setting up ATLAS Local Root Base, simply use the usual asetup command to setup your desired athena release, e.g.,

ppepc145:~/dev/trk$ asetup 17.2.11.15,here
AtlasProduction/17.2.11.15 with platform i686-slc5-gcc43-opt
at /cvmfs/atlas.cern.ch/repo/sw/software/i686-slc5-gcc43-opt/17.2.11
Test area: /afs/phas.gla.ac.uk/user/g/graeme/dev/trk

<--For now, please see the following logfile_14.2.0_setup and logfile_14.1.0.4_setup for some instruction. Note these logfiles are not written with the aim of being instructions for setup, but do contain useful information. -->
