Abstract

In a collider, particle collisions create around 2TB of data every second, with most of this data being useless to the actual study. To help sift through this data on the fly, “triggers” are used to quickly determine what events should be recreated and kept, based on several parameters. In the IMSA-CMS framework we used predetermined triggers alongside our own workarounds, without much of an option for implementing typical triggers. We created new section of code to handle custom trigger implementations, using a TriggerSimModule object. This was then used to analyze the efficiency of different triggers. Additionally, an implementation was made for the use of triggers as filter objects for the purpose of making histograms
