[Halld-offline] [EXTERNAL] auxilliary data file needed for running with HADR=4

This is tough.  From MCwrapper’s POV it does nothing special when that card is in any given state.  Do you mean it crashes? We’ll need some stack traces.

Hi all,

As a follow up to this and to keep a record for others, I can not get the HADR 4 option to work when submitting jobs to the ifarm via MCWrapper batch=2. I get a reasonable output when I run the job interactively, as seen above. I'm using the same environment, but I'm guessing somehow the correct file is not being found in batch mode. I do not see anything that stands out in the log files. Thomas, any suggestions or ideas on why MCWrapper does not recognize this file? My CERNLIB is located at /group/halld/Software/builds/Linux_CentOS7.7-x86_64-gcc4.8.5/cernlib/2005/lib.

Thanks for the information, Richard. Sure enough, I do not have $CERNLIB defined using the standard build. As a workaround to what Sean suggested, and since I am usig C shell, I added

setenv CERNLIB /group/halld/Software/builds/Linux_CentOS7.7-x86_64-gcc4.8.5/cernlib/2005/lib

to my setup_gluex.csh file that gets sourced when calling my environment. When I tested with 1k generated events, I got 89 reconstructed. Before that, as in without flukaaf.dat, I was getting 8. This compares to the ~7% reconstructed events using HADR=1. I will rerun my simulation using this setup.

Colin and all,

An input data file flukaaf.dat is a needed input file for running hdgeant with HADR=4. This file usually resides in $CERNLIB. If CERNLIB is defined on your system, then things should work. If not, then you should be sure to place a copy of flukaaf.dat in the directory from which you run hdgeant. A copy of this is found in the halld-sim repo in the halld software area, or on cvmfs, or on github at the link provided below. Take your pick, they should all be the same.
