Agenda

Release status

  • Current release = 0.9.7
  • Targets for release 0.9.8:
    • Add KL output updates
    • SciFi speedup
    • MAUS speed up
    • execute_against_data.py should be always make a tarball
  • Targets for future release:
    • Trigger MC
    • Fix memory leaks
    • Tracker -- Kalman updates

    • ACTION: Get detector output in global coordinate system (C. Heidt, C. Hunt)
    • ACTION: Need uncertainties from detector reconstructions: on positions, momenta, tof time (A. Dobbs)

Unpacking

  • DAQ channel maps to DB (D. Rajaram) #1375, blocked by #994

Infrastructure

  • Geometry/MC (S. Ricciardi, R. Bayes)
    • Speed improvements (R. Bayes)
  • Monte Carlo
    • ACTION: Upload script feature (R. Bayes)
  • GRID and Batch Production (C. Rogers, J. Martyniak)
    • Running 0.9.7
    • Fix memory leaks

  • Documentation
  • Data Structure

Online

Performance

  • Speed improvements
    • Fix memory leaks - preventing GRID runnning (A. Dobbs, D. Rajaram, C. Rogers)
    • No more passing JSON between modules, as string conversions are expensive, only use JSON for configuration data and input / output (A. Dobbs, D. Rajaram, C. Rogers)
      • Extensive refactor work
    • YK proposes parallelising MAUS with C++11 multi-threading, at the mapper level, see #1638 (A. Dobbs, D. Rajaram, C. Rogers, Y. Karadzhov)
      • Extensive refactor work
  • Beam generation excessive resource usage
    • Query analysis group requirements (in particular how many G4BL beams we need)
    • Consider alternative upstream beam generation code

Documentation

  • Finish MAUS workbook (A. Dobbs)

AOB

  • MAUS paper draft - developers please review and supply input where required launchpad

Detectors

  • Detector Integration
  • KL
  • Ckov
  • EMR
  • Tracker
    • ROOT doc store error
    • Datastructure update -> ADC data added to digits
    • SciFiTracks now link back to SciFiPRTracks instead of clusters
    • Kalman bug fixes (sign flip removed)
    • Few extra scripts in the bin directory
    • Need to get configuration data pulling from CDB
  • TOF

Global Reconstruction

Unpacking

DAQ channel maps to DB: Making progress waiting on JM to make new CDB release

Infrastructure

  • Geometry
  • MC
  • G4BL
  • GRID

Online

Performance

  • RAL Tier 1 may have no memory limit - may be able to do batch data processing here even with memory leaks
  • TOF and KL MC mappers are still JSON, DR going to convert
