This document describes how user with grid certificate can access the files stored in the AGLT2 dCache system!

All files in dCache need to be copied to a local file system for user analysis, with either the gfal-copy or xrdcp commands.

Prerequisite

Initiate user certificate and VOMS

All files stored in dCache needs to be accessed with user grid certificate with its ATLAS VOMS attribute.

Command to initiate user certificate with ATLAS VOMS attribute:

-bash-4.2$ voms-proxy-init --voms atlas
Enter GRID pass phrase:Your identity: /DC=ch/DC=cern/OU=Organic Units/OU=Users/CN=wwu/CN=673124/CN=Wenjing Wu

Contacting  lcg-voms2.cern.ch:15001 [/DC=ch/DC=cern/OU=computers/CN=lcg-voms2.cern.ch] "atlas" 
DoneCreating proxy ................... Done
Your proxy is valid until Tue Feb 19 23:54:41 2019

Setup Environment

export GFALDOOR=gsiftp://dcdum0$(echo $RANDOM %3 + 1|bc).aglt2.org:2811
export XRCPDOOR=root://xrootd.aglt2.org:1094
export SRMDOOR="srm://head01.aglt2.org:8443/srm/managerv2?SFN="

Different Tools to access files

gfal

One can use the gfal tools to list/stat/read/write/delete files in dCache
-bash-4.2$ gfal-ls -l $GFALDOOR/pnfs/aglt2.org/atlaslocalgroupdisk/SAM/testfile-srm-GET-ATLASLOCALGROUPDISK.txt

For all the above commands, one can also replace the $GFALDOOR with $SRMDOOR

xrootd

One can use xrdcp to copy a file from the dCache to a local file system, but not the other way around, because xrootd is read only server.
-bash-4.2$ xrdcp $XRCPDOOR/pnfs/aglt2.org/atlaslocalgroupdisk/SAM/testfile-srm-GET-ATLASLOCALGROUPDISK.txt /tmp/myfile4

Access dCache files from your jobs(running on the work node)

Generate a user proxy, and store it in your NFS home direcotry which the work node can access

replace /atlas/data19/wuwj/myproxy with your own file path!

-bash-4.2$ voms-proxy-init --voms atlas -out /atlas/data19/wuwj/myproxy --valid 96:00
Enter GRID pass phrase:
Your identity: /DC=ch/DC=cern/OU=Organic Units/OU=Users/CN=wwu/CN=673124/CN=Wenjing Wu
Creating temporary proxy ..................................................................................................... Done
Contacting  voms2.cern.ch:15001 [/DC=ch/DC=cern/OU=computers/CN=voms2.cern.ch] "atlas" Done
Creating proxy ............................ Done

Your proxy is valid until Mon May 27 14:38:19 2019

-bash-4.2$ ll /atlas/data19/wuwj/myproxy 
-rw------- 1 wuwj umatlas 9.3K May 23 14:34 /atlas/data19/wuwj/myproxy

Add the following commands in your job script to access the files

export GFALDOOR=gsiftp://dcdum0$(echo $RANDOM %3 + 1|bc).aglt2.org:2811
export XRCPDOOR=root://xrootd.aglt2.org:1094
export SRMDOOR="srm://head01.aglt2.org:8443/srm/managerv2?SFN="
export X509_USER_PROXY=/atlas/data19/wuwj/myproxy

You can use any of the above tools (gfal or xrootd) to access the files from your job script.
