A sample from MinimumBias primary dataset in RAW format from RunA of 2011. Run period 160957.
This dataset contains one run from 2011 RunA. The list of validated lumi sections, which must be applied to all analyses, can be found in
Events stored in this primary dataset were selected because of the presence of low-energy particles (soft-QCD events).
Data taking / HLT
The collision data were assigned to different RAW datasets using the following HLT configuration.
HLT trigger paths
The possible HLT trigger paths in this dataset are:
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:
These data are in RAW format and not directly usable in analysis. The reconstructed data reprocessed from these RAW data are included in the data of this record. The reconstruction step can be repeated with the code available in Validation code for reprocessing AOD from 2011 MinimumBias RAW sample and the resulting AOD has been confirmed to be identical with the original one with comparison code available in Validation code to plot basic physics objects from AOD
