Dataset access

LCD-WG datasets are accessed through Dirac, as explained in:

Quick start

source /afs/


Before first use, register in ILC VO, and email grid certificate DN to asking to be added to ilcdirac.

Not clear whether special credentials are needed. If so: in ~/.glite/vomses add:

"ilc" "" "15110" "/C=DE/O=GermanGrid/OU=DESY/CN=host/" "ilc" "24"

File access

To see what's in there, do:

ls /ilc/prod/clic/

To get a file:

dirac-dms-get-file /ilc/prod/clic/500gev/ZZ/ILD/DST/00000443/000/ZZ_dst_443_90.slcio

There is a datasets directory on AFS in /afs/ and there is a simple script, /afs/, that one can use to download the files listed in the SignalDatasets1 wiki.

Data Catalogues

To understand the labelling of the dataset directories, the WHIZARD nomenclature might prove useful.
