Geometry

Online Reconstruction

Batch Offline Reconstruction

  • GRID running 1.0.0
    • Enable MC GRID running again #1739
    • execute_against_data.py to always produce tarball Is this still relevant?
  • Offline Rec running 1.3.0

Infrastructure

  • InputCppRoot still using JSON (and so super slow) (D. Rajaram)
  • J. Greis reporting issues with the reducer API, related to #1762
  • Fix geometry test which randomly produces large SOAP error (R. Bayes)
  • Fix problems when setting header_and_footer_mode to "dont_append" (C. Rogers, C. Pidcott)
  • Fix matplotlib install (A. Dobbs)

Performance

  • Speed improvements for MC
  • Beam generation excessive resource usage
    • Query analysis group requirements (in particular how many G4BL beams we need)
    • Consider alternative upstream beam generation code

Tools

Event Viewer

  • Add event viewer to MAUS #1799

Documentation

  • Update tracker (C. Heidt)
  • Update geometry (R. Bayes)

Release Status

1.4.0 waiting on EMR updates.

Schedule

Detectors

  • KL
  • Ckov
  • EMR

OutputPyRootImage is seg faulting when tear down occurs in its test only. Disable test for now so can release MAUS 1.4.0, then continue working on fix.

  • Tracker

A. Dobbs continue working on resolving pat rec efficiency problem
C. Heidt to work C. Hunt to address ongoing MC sign flip issues

  • TOF

Global Reconstruction

J. Greis still seeing bad tracker data in MC (y coordinate). Liaising with C. Heidt.

Monte Carlo

Geometry

Download by current geometry now working, removed from action list. Geometry is now good to go!

Online Reconstruction

Batch Offline Reconstruction

J. Nugent work derailed over Christmas by power cut affecting ScotGrid. Need to make sure his submission scripts and associated data are backed up in future and available to wider CM. A. Dobbs will email him about setting up a Launchpad repository.

Infrastructure

New item added to remove JSON from InputCppRoot
