Release notes

This release is main release for the Mock Data Challenge.

Memory Management

A lot of work has been put into plugging memory leaks in this release so that it can be used for long runs. However, the Archive Event Store (AES) trimming has not been fully implemented, therefore if the AES is in use during execution there will be a steady increase in memory footprint. To switch off the AES the script needs to be executing with the -A option.


See the notes from NuWa-1.0.0-rc02.

Using the release code

The following is an example of how to use an installation where MY_WORKSPACE set to a directory in your area, and DYBHOME set to the area that contains the installation or, for DayaBay's main clusters:

  • PDSF: DYBHOME=/common/dayabay/global

pushd ${DYBHOME}/NuWa/NuWa-1.0.0
pushd dybgaudi/DybRelease/cmt/
ln -s ${DYBHOME}/NuWa/NuWa-1.0.0/dybgaudi/Detector/MedConDetDesc . -A -G MedConDetDesc/DDDB/dayabay_dry.xml -n 20 -o mdc_led.root -R 12345 \
        -m "MDC08.runLED -w 2008-11-27T00:00:00" -A -G MedConDetDesc/DDDB/dayabay_dry.xml -n 20 -o mdc_dark.root -R 67890 \
        -m "MDC08.runDark -w 2008-11-27T01:30:00"

The penultimate line runs the calibration diffuser ball simulation, while the last line runs the dark noise simulation.
