The CDF Run 2 Offline Computer Farms

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Run 2 at Fermilab began in March 2001. CDF will collect data at a maximum rate of 20 MByte/sec during the run. The offline reconstruction of this data must keep up with the data taking rate. This reconstruction occurs on a large PC farm, which must have the capacity for quasi-real time data reconstruction, for reprocessing of some data and for generation and processing of Monte Carlo samples. In this paper they give the design requirements for the farm, describe the hardware and software design used to meet those requirements, describe the early experiences with Run 2 data processing, and ... continued below
