Summary

This guide illustrates how to submit a FLUKA parametric job using IGP (Italian Grid Portal).

Preliminary Steps

It is mandatory a valid X509 certificate and VO GRIDIT membership. AGGIUNGERE LINK

Each portal user has a personal storage area, accessed through IGP Data Management (DM). The storage area path has a common prefix (/grid/gridit/spes_project/fluka) and a suffix depending from the user name (/username). Users might create directory and files under this path. This personal storage area will be used to load input files, using an archive, either plain (extension tar) or compressed (extension will be tgz). The archive must necessarily contain FLUKA input files, according to the following convention: archiveName_N.inp with N positive integer. FLUKA input files have also to be consecutive within the same archive. For instance, if your archive is called silicon2, the archive should be looking as follows:

> tar tfz silicon2.tgz
silicon2_1.inp
silicon2_2.inp
silicon2_3.inp
silicon2_4.inp
silicon2_5.inp

On your own machine, you can create in advance the archive, that will be eventually uploaded to IGP DM. To create locally the archive you should copy on a directory all the input files (already renamed properly, with the archive name and consecutive indexes), then enter the directory and then run the command

> tar cf archiveName.tar archiveName_*

or

> tar zcf archiveName.tgz archiveName_*

depending if you wish to create a plain or a compressed archive.

Please make sure that the chosen archive name (silicon2 in the example above) is the same for each inp file, and it corresponds also to the archive file name.

Input file upload

Once created locally (on your own machine) the archive with the input files, you can upload it to IGP, with the DM tools accessible in the Storage section. Change current path to the common /grid/gridit/spes_project/fluka and then to the personal directory within. If the input directory does not exist, create it. Then click on Upload, which prompts for the archive file selection. As target, you can leave Random Destination, or select a Storage Element you trust. Then press start to trigger the transfer, and wait for the Transfer OK message.

At the end you should see the archive file in the path you have specified.
