Shared Files

Files in dk2nu format

Files generated by the g4numi and flugg simulation contain entries representing decays of hadrons and muons that give rise to neutrinos. Original instances of these simulations resulted in files of various incompatible formats (h10 and nudata ntuples). The plan is to migrate to the writing of dk2nu format. Existent files can be converted to the dk2nu format (to the extent that they contain the minimum information). The dk2nu format is suitable for the fluxreader tool and eventually direct GENIE use.

Short note on beam configuration file naming

Beam configuration are referenced in a compact form using a notation:

{tgt}{pullback}z{horncur}i

where

{tgt} "le" MINOS-era low energy target and horn 2 position
"mn" NOvA-era medium energy target and horn 2 position
"me" ambigiuous, but generally synonym for "mn"
{pullback}z nnn (cm) for "le" targets distance the target was pulled back from the furthest it could go into the target
000 for "mn" target, as it is not adjustable
{horncur}i 185 (kA) nominal horn current for "le" configuration (though others possible)
-185 reverse horn current for "le" configuration (enhanced anti-neutrino production)
000 horn off (both "le" and "mn")
200 nominal horn current for "mn" configuration
-200 reverse horn current for "mn" configuration

Location of shared files

The short-term approach for sharing files across NuMI-X experiments is to use the /nusoft/data/flux BlueArc disk. This is mounted on all the experiments interactive nodes, but isn't available on the grid worker nodes. The longer term solution is to migrate to using dCache in conjunction with a SAM catalogue. Moving to this will require filenames to be unique.

Most files should represent 500,000 protons-on-target (POTs), though this is not guaranteed, so check the the potnum (previously evtno) range makes sense, which should also be reflected in the metadata (dkmeta tree) pots value.

Latest build, numix-blackbird files can be found in /nusoft/data/flux/blackbird-numix
