CbmRoot: Seeding of random generators

Added by Volker Friese 6 days ago

For the sake of debugging and reproducability, it is proposed in MR 474 to remove all explicit setting of seeds to random generators in the code base. For more details, please have a look at the merge request.

This affects two classes in the analysis (papa framework), namely

  • PairAnalysisTrackRotator
  • PairAnalysisVarManager

Be aware that the changes might influence the results as P. Raisig has pointed out. Random seeds should be properly steered from the execution macro.

The code will be merged on Monday morning (13 September 2021) if no objections are raised.

CbmRoot: Deprecation of Debian8 on the Virgo cluster

Added by Florian Uhlig 17 days ago

Dear colleagues,

as reported meanwhile several times the Debian8 support on the Virgo cluster will be switched off this evening. This means that it is not possible any longer to use Debian8 containers for your work. Also the old cvmfs installation at /cvmfs/fairroot.gsi.de as well as /cvmfs/it.gsi.de will not be accessible from the Virgo cluster any longer.

As alternatives there are Debian10 and CentOS7 containers as well as the needed FairSoft/FairRoot installation on cvmfs for both systems available. If you use your own CbmRoot installation which was compiled using Debian8 you must recompile CbmRoot with the system of your choice.
The new FairSoft/FairRoot installations are available at /cvmfs/fairsoft.gsi.de/debian10 or /cvmfs/fairsoft.gsi.de/centos7 respectively.
If you want to use the latests CbmRoot release apr21 you can find a ready to use installations for both systems at

/cvmfs/cbm.gsi.de/debian10/cbmroot/apr21_fairroot-v18.2.1_fairsoft_jun19p2

or

/cvmfs/cbm.gsi.de/centos7/cbmroot/apr21_fairroot-v18.2.1_fairsoft_jun19p2

In case you have problems please report them in the Redmine issue tracker.

Best regards

Florian
