Meeting at 10:00, in room 4.140

Preliminary agenda:
(priorities to be assigned, for the moment only a simple list)

1) shifts to write protocols of the meetings

2) status new XRD cluster (Kilian, Victor)
3) AliXRDPROOFtoolkit (Marian)
4) Next PROOF tutorial

5) GRID users' jobs at GSI:
- Ana's analysis task: compilation problems (Kilian)
- Silvia's experience during last week
- Anna's monitoring

6) status file transfers (Kilian)
7) first speed test results (Misha)

8) copy of the AliEn database to GSI
9) installation of AliRoot v4-07-Rev-01


Additional information:

Point 5: GRID users' jobs at GSI

See timing at mp;Inserting-Assigned.enabled=true&Running-Saving.enabled=true&S aved-Done.enabled=true&Saving-Saved.enabled=true&SiteBase=GSI&am p;Started-Running.enabled=true&USER=sma&edial_vcs2.remember_pw=0 &err=0&imgsize=800x550&interval.max=0&interval.min=60480 0000&log=0&page=timings%2Fperuser&sum=0)

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)
/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/");

AliCDBStorage* sto = man->GetDefaultStorage();


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")
