Description

This might be a useful addition.

History

#1 Updated by Eric Flumerfelt over 3 years ago

I'm not sure how much value would be added by having an option to quick-mrb-start. What I would like to make sure is that

PRODUCTS=/main/products/area:/some/other/products/area quick-mrb-start.sh --options

behaves as expected.

#2 Updated by Kurt Biery over 3 years ago

Yes, it would be good to test that option.

One possible value of telling quick-mrb-start.sh about extra product areas explicitly is that it can add them to the setupARTDAQDEMO script. In the example of setting PRODUCTS on the command line before running quick-start, that would not happen, and a user might forget to add those products to his/her environment before trying to run the system at some later time.

#3 Updated by Eric Flumerfelt over 3 years ago

So, with artdaq-demo:2e76565, quick-mrb-start adds an export PRODUCTS= line to setupARTDAQDEMO. This PRODUCTS variable contains:
  1. The products area that quick-mrb-start creates with pullProducts
  2. If --no-extra-products is not set:
    1. Either /cvmfs/fermilab.opensciencegrid.org/products/artdaq OR /grid/fermiapp/products/artdaq, if they're mounted on the machine which ran quick-mrb-start
    2. /products, if it exists
    3. Whatever was in PRODUCTS before running quick-mrb-start.
