CDF Data Handling
|"Whatever it takes to get at data..."|
The CDF Data Handling project aims to provide users straight-forward
access to and bookkeeping of data.
Remote sites are participating fully in the analysis of CDF data.
CDF SAM User Documentation is the basic document to read. It includes information on storing MC files.

June 2006: Recommendation: the '08' & '09' and earlier Generation 4 datasets were removed; please use any of the newer datasets
Golden Dataset concept was abandoned on 1 May 2006; total disk
space in the dCache disk pools should be sufficient to minimize
repetetive tape access.
Golden Datasets were preloaded into dCache and periodically checked for availability.
