Feature #21229: 'Shuffling' input module
Determine product lookup policy for sampled products
SamplingInput source is responsible for creating the
Sampled<T> (sub)run products, where
T is the specific product type. As the products are created by the input source, a sensible means of retrieving the products from the input datasets needs to be developed. Specifically, the original module label, instance name, and process name must, to some extent, be preserved in order to disambiguate between the products from the input datasets.

For a job that uses the
SamplingInput source, the chosen behavior is:
- Event data products from input files are retrievable using the same behavior as listed here.
- No (sub)run products from input files are directly retrievable, nor are they persisted to an output file. Instead, (sub)run products are accessed through the
art::Sampled<T>class template, which can be persisted to disk.
- For looking up
Sampled<T>products, users specify the original module label and instance name for the requested product. However, instead of specifying the original process name (e.g. "MakeTracks"), the "SampledFrom" prefix is prepended to the original process name (e.g. "SampledFromMakeTracks"). Users are encouraged to call
art::sampled_from("MakeTracks"), as the process name, which will return the correctly prefixed process name.
