A description of metadata can be found at: https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/redmine/attachments/download/9088/SAM_metadata_2013_02_05.pdf

The dimension syntax groups simple predicates together to make more complicated queries as described at: https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/redmine/projects/sam-web/wiki/Dimension_Syntax

Basic clauses can be combined as described at: https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/redmine/projects/sam-main/wiki/Updated_dimensions_syntax

New database instances require initial data before they will function. Each experiment will need to add more data to the base data described at: https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/redmine/projects/sam-main/wiki/Initial_database_content_for_new_instances

Using SAM to Install a CDF Station from Scratch instructions cover installing GRID software, creating a user account (usually called sam), installing SAM ups products and configuring SAM. https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/redmine/projects/sam-main/wiki/Install_a_CDF_Station_from_Scratch
