Larsoft common batch and workflow tools are contained in ups product @larbatch@ (this redmine), which is built and distributed as part of @larsoft@. Larbatch tools are built on top of Fermilab @jobsub_client@ batch submission tools. For general information about jobsub_client and the Fermilab batch system, refer to articles on the "jobsub wiki":https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/redmine/projects/jobsub/wiki and the "fife wiki":https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/redmine/projects/fife/wiki/Getting_Started_on_GPCF.
No other part of larsoft is dependent on @larbatch@, and @larbatch@ is not setup as a dependent of the @larsoft@ umbrella ups product. Rather, @larbatch@ is intended to be a dependent of experiment-specific ups products (see [[admin_guide|this article]] for instructions on configuring @larbatch@ for a specific experiment.
After setting up ups product @larbatch@, several executable scripts and python modules are available on the execution path and python path. Here is a list of the more important ones.
An executable python script that is the the main entry point for user interation.
A python module, imported by @project.py@, that implements some of the workflow functionality. End users would not normally interact directly with @project_utilities.py@. However, a significant aspect of @project_utilities.py@ is that is supplies hooks for providing experiment-specific implementations of some functionality, as described in an [[admin_guide#Experiment-specific hooks|accompanying article]].
