SAM Data Catalog Search

Search Methods

This form is used to read the SAM database and retrieve the data run file information. The returned information can be formatted as lists of files suitable for feeding into job scripts. You have a choice of outputs: HTML or Plain Text. You can also choose what file access method you would like: DCache, pnfs or ftp.

All fields entered below are combined as a boolean AND to construct the database search.

Please note that Beam monitoring data and DCS data do not have run number or run type information associated with them. So if you do a query where for example you try to combine a search for RAW data and Beam data after a certain date then you will not get any beam data returned. You must make a separate query for the beam data.
