The CDF computing and analysis system: First experience

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF) collaboration records and analyses proton anti-proton interactions with a center-of-mass energy of 2 TeV at the Tevatron. A new collider run, Run II, of the Tevatron started in April. During its more than two year duration the CDF experiment expects to record about 1 PetaByte of data. With its multi-purpose detector and center-of-mass energy at the frontier, the experimental program is large and versatile. The over 500 scientists of CDF will engage in searches for new particles, like the Higgs boson or supersymmetric particles, precision measurement of electroweak parameters, like the mass of the ... continued below

Description

The Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF) collaboration records and analyses proton anti-proton interactions with a center-of-mass energy of 2 TeV at the Tevatron. A new collider run, Run II, of the Tevatron started in April. During its more than two year duration the CDF experiment expects to record about 1 PetaByte of data. With its multi-purpose detector and center-of-mass energy at the frontier, the experimental program is large and versatile. The over 500 scientists of CDF will engage in searches for new particles, like the Higgs boson or supersymmetric particles, precision measurement of electroweak parameters, like the mass of the W boson, measurement of top quark parameters, and a large spectrum of B physics. The experiment has taken data and analyzed them in previous runs. For Run II, however, the computing model was changed to incorporate new methodologies, the file format switched, and both data handling and analysis system redesigned to cope with the increased demands. This paper (4-036 at Chep 2001) gives an overview of the CDF Run II compute system with emphasis on areas where the current system does not match initial estimates and projections. For the data handling and analysis system a more detailed description is given.
