Workbook for BaBar Offline Users - Special for LBL

Special instructions for users running at LBL. 

Work as at SLAC

The general setup at LBL is made to be a close as possible to the setup at SLAC.
  • The machines to log into at LBL are called online05.lbl.gov and online06.lbl.gov.
These machines are Alphas, and hence BFARCH is OSF1V4.

Directories

  • The user home directories are same for most users as at SLAC (therefore you must have an AFS home directory). Some local LBL users use their local NFS directories.
  • ssh should be used to log in to make sure you get an AFS token (this is the only method for online06).
  • Use the command newrel -s /work/akadem/<user> -t ... to place the libraries and binary files on the local disk.
  • Some xtc files can be found in /home/babardata/xtcdata.

Releases

At LBL the BFROOT is the same as at SLAC.


Database

  • There is no production databases a LBL. 
  • However, production databases at SLAC should be accessible identically to working at SLAC.

Batch Queues

There are no batch queues available at LBL at the moment. If you wish to run jobs on the LBL machines please use nice to ensure interactive users get priority.


Support

Support is available for running the BaBar software at LBL:
  • For problems with the setup at LBL Stephen J. Gowdy <SGowdy@lbl.gov> . Check the release pages for any hints before reporting a problem.
  • For general BaBar problems, i.e. problems which are the same at LBL and at SLAC use the HyperNews.
