Description:

  • 'local': 
    • A 3TB local share of the beamline file-system which stays there independently of the beamtimes
    • It is managed by the beamlines themselves
    • There is no syncing across to the core file-system.
    • It serves as a local buffer.
    • Anybody on the beamline can read/write from/to it
    • Cannot be accessed from the core file-system
  • 'current':
    • Non-permanent share from the beamline file-system
    • It will appear when a beamtime is started and disappear if it is stopped
    • Meaning of the different directories:

      • raw: 
        • For raw data
        • will be 
          • migrated into the core file-system
          • written to tape
          • shown in the Gamma-portal
      • processed
        • For meaningful processed data
        • will be 
          • migrated into the core file-system
          • written to tape
          • shown in the Gamma-portal
      • shared
        • For user specific macros, scripts, metadata, text-files,...
        • will be
          • migrated into the core file-system
          • written to tape
          • shown in the Gamma-portal
      • scratch
        • Meant for 
          • temporarily data
          • data it is not known in advance if is meaningful or not. That data can be written here and if its meaningful copied into 'processed' afterwards.
        • will not be migrated into the core file-system
  • 'commissioning'
    • Same as 'current' but for commissioning runs
  • 'common':
    • Mounted read-only in the beamline space
    • Its world-readable meaning that all beamlines can read it
    • Meant for documentation, macros, ... provided to the users by the beamline staff
    • If users has to edit something, like a macro, they can copy it into 'shared'
    • Can be changed from the core side by the beamline staff
