The fraction of CMS sub-detectors participating in CRUZET3 has steadily increased and includes from the first time all its components: the DT muon system, RPC barrel, CSC endcap, HCAL and barrel ECAL calorimeters, and the recently installed silicon strip tracker (the biggest tracker detector ever built!).
Last night (9.7.2008), over 1 million cosmic ray events were reconstructed on the tracker system. This is the first time we see triggered cosmic ray tracks in both TIB and TOB at the Tracker level:
Primary datasets are created using the new Tier-0 “repacker” in almost 'real time' and transferred to CAF and Tier-1 sites for prompt analyses. IN2P3 Tier-1 has the custodial responsibility to hold CRUZET3 data, although all Tier-1 sites are constantly receiving the cosmic data. During these two first days, ~3 TBs of data has landed to PIC, being the best Tier-1 site from Rate and Quality p.o.v (curiosly, yesterday we spent the whole day in scheduled downtime!).
