Production jobs from the Kch2pipi0-1 production round have decay type 1, description set to "Kch2pipi0-1 production round", 1500 events for v6 runs and 6000 events for v7 runs. Please pay attention when submitting jobs.

When the Kch2pipi0-1 production round is done, we will switch to the next round, which is Kch2munu-1 (decay type 30). For Kch2munu, it takes only 1 s per event, so we could run 40000-50000 events jobs. Check jobs table to extract these statistics.

  • notify the site admin if jobs systematically fail at a given site. Check the jobs history to detect any problems at sites (e.g. jobs consistently finishing early, or going to status CLEARED without registering any output). ALERT! If jobs fail at a site, exclude it from job submissions and notify the site admin!
 
  • notify Janusz if outputs fail to be replicated on CERN Castor (labelled LS instead of CC in the files table)

NA62 Monte Carlo Grid Production Rota

This wiki will contain information about and for the volunteers for the NA62 MC Grid production rota.

List of volunteers

To be filled.

Production plan

The production plan is located here:

Grid Production Shifts

GP "shifts" will not require too much work, and it is enough if the person on shift will check the production status every few hours or so. It is expected that GP 'shifts' will be at least a day long.

How it all works

MC jobs will be submitted by automaticall by cron jobs. The person overseeing the production (the "shift" taker) will have to check periodically if everything goes according to plan, and

* intervene if possible to fix the error(s)

* notify the production coordinator if not possible to directly intervene to rectify the error

The person in charge must do the following:

1. keep an eye on the jobs list and make sure we have 200+ jobs queued at all times
