h2. The Job Configuration Script
14 1 Erica Snider
15 1 Erica Snider
Once a base and test release are set up, it is easy to run a job. The basic unit for running a job is the job-control script, written in the FHICL language. The FHICL language provides a simple mechanism for including parameter set configurations from different files such that many job configuration files can use the same configuration for a module or service.

There is also a nice "FHICL quick start guide":https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/redmine/attachments/16021/quick_start.pdf available for more details.

h3. Key Concepts in FHICL
20 1 Erica Snider
21 1 Erica Snider
There are a few key concepts to writing a FHICL job control script.  In order, they are
22 1 Erica Snider
23 1 Erica Snider
# Including previously defined configurations for services and modules from other files.  This is done using #include statements. *Be sure you don't have any trailing space or tab characters* on the #include line.
24 1 Erica Snider
# Services block, denoted by @services: { }@  This block will contain configurations for ART specific services such as the TFileService and the RandomNumberGenerator.  It also contains a user: {} sub-block where LArSoft specific services are configured.  
25 1 Erica Snider
# Source block, denoted by @source: { }@.  This block tells the job what kind of source to expect (EmptyEvent in the case of MonteCarlo generation, RootInput in the case of anything downstream of a Monte Carlo generator or reconstruction), the file name for the input source if appropriate, and how many events to process.  Both the file name and number of events to process can be specified on the command line.
26 1 Erica Snider
# Outputs block, denoted by @outputs: { }@  This block tells the job what kind of output to make, ie RootOutput, and what the name of the output file should be.  The output file name can be specified on the command line.  It is possible to define more than one output file if one wanted to run a job that produced different output files based on filter criteria - ie empty events are put in one file and events with neutrinos in them are put in another. Multiple output files can only be specified in the job configuration file, not from the command line.
27 1 Erica Snider
# Physics block, denoted by @physics: { }@  This block is where all producer, analyzer, and filter modules are configured.  The sequence of producer and filter modules to run is defined in a user-named path in this block.  The list of analyzers to run is defined in separate user-named path.  The block also defines two key-word parameters, trigger_paths and end_paths.  trigger_paths contains all producer and filter paths to run, and end_paths contains the analyzer paths and output streams.
28 1 Erica Snider
29 1 Erica Snider
Comments may be included in FHICL configuration files using the "#" character.  The "#include" is a key-word so that the parser knows not to ignore what comes after "#include".
30 1 Erica Snider
31 1 Erica Snider
h3. FHICL Rules
32 1 Erica Snider
33 1 Erica Snider
There are a couple of rules to keep in mind about FHICL:
34 1 Erica Snider
35 1 Erica Snider
* The value of the process_name parameter may not contain underscores as the process name is used in the ROOT file branch name.  Module labels may not contain underscores either, for the same reason.
36 1 Erica Snider
37 1 Erica Snider
* Parameter set names may not contain numbers, periods, backslashes, stars, etc. They may contain underscores.
38 1 Erica Snider
39 1 Erica Snider
* Put the values for all string parameters in " "
40 1 Erica Snider
41 1 Erica Snider
* Specify input vectors using [ , , ], ie if you want a vector of doubles do 
42 1 Erica Snider
@MyVector: [1.0, 3e-9, -900.]@
43 1 Erica Snider
44 1 Erica Snider
* You pick out configurations from the #include files using the @local:: syntax.  The value after the "::" is the name of the configuration specified in one of the #include files
45 1 Erica Snider
46 1 Erica Snider
* You can override the value of an included configuration. For example, imagine there is a configuration specified in a #include file called mymoduleconfig and it contains the value -5 for the parameter named myint. One can load the configuration and then change the value of myint by doing the following
47 1 Erica Snider
<pre>
48 1 Erica Snider
#inside the producers block:
49 1 Erica Snider
mymod: @local::mymoduleconfig
50 1 Erica Snider
51 1 Erica Snider
#out of the physics block
52 1 Erica Snider
physics.producer.mymod.myint: 1
53 1 Erica Snider
</pre>
54 1 Erica Snider
The last value for a parameter always wins.  If the second line was repeated with the value 2 instead of 1, the job would run with myint as 2.
55 1 Erica Snider
56 1 Erica Snider
h3. Configuring the [[Using_the_Framework#Message-Facility-and-MessageLogger|message service]]
57 1 Erica Snider
58 1 Erica Snider
Several standard configurations for the message service are in source:trunk/Utilities/messageservice.fcl.  There is one configuration for each level of message output - Debug, Info, Warning, and Error.  These configurations will be applied to each message level that is specified and those of higher priority.  For example, the Info configuration will print out Info, Warning and Error level messages while the Warning configuration only print outs Warning and Error level messages. The standard configurations will cause the messages to go to a specified output file, debug.log, info.log, warnings.log and error.log. If you want to define your own configuration, please take a look at the comments in the source:trunk/Utilities/messageservice.fcl file to determine how to do so.  
59 1 Erica Snider
60 1 Erica Snider
Examples of how to include the usual use of the message service configurations are in the example files below.
61 1 Erica Snider
62 1 Erica Snider
To get a different level of output from just one module (say DBSCAN) one would do:

h3. How to override a default parameter
289 1 Erica Snider
290 1 Erica Snider
If you want to override a default parameter that has been included from a predefined parameter set, you must specify which parameter and its value as
291 1 Erica Snider
292 1 Erica Snider
<pre><code class="c">
293 1 Erica Snider
mainBlock.subBlock.label.parameterName: newValue
294 1 Erica Snider
</code></pre>
295 1 Erica Snider
296 1 Erica Snider
where 
297 1 Erica Snider
298 1 Erica Snider
* mainBlock can be services or physics 
299 1 Erica Snider
* subBlock can be user, producers, filters, or analyzers
300 1 Erica Snider
* label is the name of the desired service or module in a producers, filters, or analyzers block
301 1 Erica Snider
* parameterName is the name of the desired parameter
302 1 Erica Snider
* newValue is the desired new value
303 1 Erica Snider
304 1 Erica Snider
These lines must go after the mainBlock and be outside of any other mainBlocks.
305 1 Erica Snider
306 1 Erica Snider
For example, if one wanted to change the default value of the fhitsModuleLabel parameter in the DBcluster module in the previous section, one would put

h2. Executable and command line options
399 1 Erica Snider
400 1 Erica Snider
Currently there is one executable to run in LArSoft. The executable to run a typical reconstruction or analysis job is lar which is placed in the user's path by the setup script. To see what options are available do
401 1 Erica Snider
402 1 Erica Snider
@$lar -h@
403 1 Erica Snider
404 1 Erica Snider
The output is 
405 1 Erica Snider
406 1 Erica Snider
@lar <options> [config-file]:
407 1 Erica Snider
  -T [ --TFileName ] arg File name for TFileService.
408 1 Erica Snider
  -c [ --config ]    arg Configuration file.
409 1 Erica Snider
  -e [ --estart ]    arg Event # of first event to process.
410 1 Erica Snider
  -h [ --help ]          produce help message
411 1 Erica Snider
  -n [ --nevts ]     arg Number of events to process.
412 1 Erica Snider
  --nskip            arg Number of events to skip.
413 1 Erica Snider
  -o [ --output ]    arg Event output stream file.
414 1 Erica Snider
  -s [ --source ]    arg Source data file (multiple OK).
415 1 Erica Snider
  --trace                Activate tracing.
416 1 Erica Snider
  --notrace              Dectivate tracing.@

h2. Running a Job
419 1 Erica Snider
420 1 Erica Snider
To run the job defined by the script above, do
421 1 Erica Snider
422 1 Erica Snider
@$ lar -c job/prodgenie.fcl@
423 1 Erica Snider
424 1 Erica Snider
One can stop a job in two ways, 
425 1 Erica Snider
426 1 Erica Snider
# type ctrl-c once the job will complete at the end of the current module. If the job is running in the background type @kill -9 %jobID@ on the command line.
427 1 Erica Snider
# If you type ctrl-c, ctrl-c the job will stop immediately and produce a core dump.
428 1 Erica Snider
429 1 Erica Snider
If you want to have your job keep running even if you get disconnected from a remote session you can do
430 1 Erica Snider
431 1 Erica Snider
@$ nohup lar job/prodgenie.fcl >& pg.out @
432 1 Erica Snider
433 1 Erica Snider
To stop such a job, then do
434 1 Erica Snider
@$ps aux@ to find the job ID
435 1 Erica Snider
@kill -INT jobID@
436 1 Erica Snider
437 1 Erica Snider
One can print out the configuration of the job without starting the executable by doing 
438 1 Erica Snider
439 1 Erica Snider
@$ ART_DEBUG_CONFIG=1 lar -c job/prodgenie.fcl@
440 1 Erica Snider
441 1 Erica Snider
in @bash@, or
442 1 Erica Snider
443 1 Erica Snider
@> env ART_DEBUG_CONFIG=1 lar -c job/prodgenie.fcl@
444 1 Erica Snider
445 1 Erica Snider
in cshell which produces the output
