Summary0000440: Files on tape not matching ones on RAID
DescriptionAfter discussing with David what we should do to verify that
data is being correctly written to tape, I decided to
use the md5checksum. This information is created and according
to David, checked when files are written to tape. So it seemed
like a duplicated effort, but I went ahead anyway.

The numbers I am comparing are
1. the line that starts with "md5=" within each file for
2. running md5sum on each file on the evio files on the gluonraids

Running md5sum is rather cumbersome since you have to compute
this value based on every single byte in the file. This can
take between 1-3 min. for each file, so to save time I restricted
myself to files ending in _000.evio.

The result is, I find 5 pairs where the md5sum do not agree.
The runs and md5sums are below. The "<" files are from /mss,
the ">" files are from running on the gluonraid files.

I ran over the 000 files between 940 and 2245, but note that
there are actually some runs where file 000 is missing for one
reason or the other (DAQ crash etc). So for roughly 1300 files,
I find 5 files (~0.4%) have wrong md5 checksums.

I checked the size of each file, and each pair seems to have different
values. The below shows file names, size shown in /mss, and size in
gluonraid. The gluonraid files are always bigger.

002104_000.evio 715201656 1014051452

The runs that show a difference don't seem to be clustered
at any specific value. Since there is now the potential that
there is something wrong in the copying process, we may
need to think of how to eliminate the bug.

Additional InformationI checked the file sizes of all evio files in the gluonraid disks
and the /mss system.

Below are the 17 files that do not agree in size:

I checked the md5 checksums of all the EVIO files on the RAID disk with those reported by the tape system in the stub files in /mss [Note that there were a handful of files my script didn't find on the RAID disk (about 20)]. Of the analyzed files, the files whose checksums did not match overlaps almost perfectly with Kei's list - there is one extra file which presumably was created after his analysis.

This is consistent with the hypothesis that the files are being copied to tape without error, and the mismatches we see are only due to files on tape being truncated.
