pq2-ls — List the available datasets in a dataset meta-repository based on ROOT files
pq2-ls [options] [datasets]
This manual page documents briefly the pq2-ls program.
pq2-ls is a script invoking the pq2 ROOT application to list the available datasets in a dataset meta-repository based on ROOT files; the repository can be accessed via the local file system or a remote file server daemon or a PROOF facility.
More details about the underlying 'pq2' application can be found in the man page pq2(1).
The dataset or the datasets to be listed; the wildcards '*' is supported. By default, all the datasets in the repository are listed.
- -h, --help
Display help information.
- -k, --keep
Keep the temporary files created during the analysis under $TMPDIR
Force opening of the datasets are open to get the information; by default the pre-processed information is used, if any.
In the case a cache is used, do not update the cache (may be slow on some servers).
Refresh the information (requires appropriate credentials; typically it can be done only for owned datasets).
- -d <dataset>, --dataset=<dataset>
Alternative way to define the dataset or the datasets to be listed.
- -u <serverurl>, --url=<serverurl>
URL of the PROOF master or data server providing the information; for data servers, it must include the directory. Can also be specified via the environment variables PQ2PROOFURL or PQ2DSSRVURL (see Environment Variables)."
- -t <dir>, --tmpdir=<dir>
Directory for temporary files; default is /tmp/<username>.
Format of the Output
The information printed by pq2-ls has the following format:
/group/user/dsname | # files | /<def-tree> | # evts | size | staged fraction
Dataset URI | # Files | Default tree | # Events | Disk | Staged /PWG2/akisiel/Therminator_c2030 | 952 | /esdTree | 927 | 4 GB | 97 %
The space reserved for the default tree name is 14 characters: for longer names the last character is substituted with a '>'.
