This is the online help, as can be obtained with the command des -help:
The Delphi Event Server (DES) picks and processes real data events. It runs in one of these six modes: - LIST: des -m list -e 84078:10815 [-e 88588:2459] lists the Raw data tape that contains event 10815 from run 84078 - PICK: des -m pick -e 84078:10815 [-e 88588:2459] picks the event from the raw data tape and returns the raw data output - DELANA: des -m delana -e 84078:10815 [-e 88588:2459] picks the event from the raw data tape, processes it through the corresponding DELANA version and returns that DELANA output. - DSTANA: des -m dstana -e 84078:10815 [-e 88588:2459] picks the event from the raw data tape, processes it through DELANA and DSTANA, and returns the DSTANA output - WIRED: des -m wired -e 84078:10815 [-e 88588:2459] picks the event from the ShortDST file, and creates a webpage to view it, using WIRED For these modes, you can process more than one event per request by specifying multiple "-e run:evt" options. - MULTI: des -m multi -f inputfile [-evl] picks the DST events listed in the inputfile. The format of the input file should be: FATMEN = XSDST97_E3 76045 364 77904 4419 77951 4278 or, alternatively, VSN = EK1564, NUMBER = 21 42093 21 42113 240 42132 17 42132 152 VSN = EK1796, NUMBER = 1 -20403 130 -20403 211 If your inputfile is an EVENTLIST file produced by PHDST, you can specify the "-evl" option. This speeds up processing considerably! NB: this option works for Monte Carlo events as well as for real events. The Event Server launches a batch job to the batch cluster. When this job finishes, it will store the output in your AFS $SCRATCH directory. A notification mail will be sent to you. Since the Event Server submits a batch job to the public batch cluster, you have to log on to a public interactive cluster (LXPLUS, DXPLUS or HPPLUS) to run it.
