I am looking for an example to run HS23 directly from CVMFS. An entry path to the right repo should be sufficient I guess.
Use case would be a quick & dirty benchmarking within containers etc. trying to skip/avoid the installation.
The benchmark would not have to be totally accurate, i.e., cold cache would be acceptable for my use case - although I would see to walk through the subtree in CVMFS reading the heads of all files to pre-warm the local cache.
starting from hepscore v1.6 this feature will be available with a simple CLI option:
you can try the v1.6rc3 for that.
python3.6 -m venv myenv
pip3 install git+https://firstname.lastname@example.org
hepscore -i dir /tmp/
it will automatically select the same worklaods of the official version of hepscore, but this time from cvmfs/unpacked.cern.ch
@giordano many thanks - looks good
(looks like I managed to kill one of my test VMs - but that’s probably due to the box having only a token CPU weight… )
