Point 8: Database on AliEn
===================

(information from Alberto Colla)
For AliRoot v4-07-Release and its revisions, use:
/alice/simulation/2007/PDC07_v4-07-Rev-01/ (full geometry)
and
/alice/simulation/2007/PDC07_v4-07-Rev-01_PartialGeom/ (partial TRD and TOF)

---------------------------------------

You can drain a local copy of the database with AliRoot (with access to AliEn):

AliCDBManager* man = AliCDBManager::Instance(); man->SetDefaultStorage("alien://folder=/alice/simulation/2007/PDC07_v4-07-Rev-01/Ideal/CDB/");
man->SetRun(0);

man->SetDrain("local:///d/alice08/sma/soft64/CDB2/PDC07_v4-07-Rev-01/Ideal/CDB");
AliCDBStorage* sto = man->GetDefaultStorage();
sto->GetAll("*",0);

----------------------------------------

Now it is also possible to access the DB on AliEn only once at the beginning of the task, cache a local temporary copy and use that for any further access during that session:

man->SetDefaultStorage(" alien://folder=/alice/simulation/2007/PDC07_v4-07-Rev-01/Ideal/CDB/?cach eFold=/tmp/DBCache")
