Expert Mode: Set number of events to analyze

Asked by Andreas on 2017-02-28

Dear experts,

is there a straightforward way to run an analysis job only for a given number of events?

When testing code, I would like to be able to run only over e.g. 1000 events in order to quickly see if everything is working.
Ideally, this would be something like

./MadAnalysis5job input --nEvents=1000

Is this already implemented in some way?

Thank you

Andreas

Hi Andreas,

This is not implemented, but you can easily include this by modifying the main.cpp file.

Cheers,

Benjamin

Hi Benjamin,

thanks for getting back to me. I will implement it myself then.
I think it's really useful feature, though, so it would probably be a good idea to include it in a future release.
So, while not a top priority, it would be nice to have!

Thanks again

Andreas
