CMS list of validated runs Cert_13TeV_16Dec2015ReReco_Collisions15_25ns_JSON_v2.txt, CMS Collaboration
This file describes which luminosity sections in which runs are considered good and should be processed.
This list covers proton-proton data taking in 2015, RunD is between run numbers 256630 and 260627.
During data taking all the runs recorded by CMS are certified as good for physics analysis if all subdetectors, trigger, lumi and physics objects (tracking, electron, muon, photon, jet and MET) show the expected performance. Certification is based first on the offline shifters evaluation and later on the feedback provided by detector and Physics Object Group experts. Based on the above information, which is stored in a specific database called Run Registry, the Data Quality Monitoring group verifies the consistency of the certification and prepares a json file of certified runs to be used for physics analysis. For each reprocessing of the raw data, the above mentioned steps are repeated. For more information see:
Add the following lines in the configuration file for a cmsRun job:
import FWCore.ParameterSet.Config as cms
import FWCore.PythonUtilities.LumiList as LumiList
goodJSON = 'Cert_13TeV_16Dec2015ReReco_Collisions15_25ns_JSON_v2.txt'
myLumis = LumiList.LumiList(filename = goodJSON).getCMSSWString().split(',')
Add the file path if needed in the file name.
Add the following statements after the
process.source input file definition:
process.source.lumisToProcess = cms.untracked.VLuminosityBlockRange()
Note that the two last statements must be placed after the
process.source statement defining the input files.
