Shorthand Commands

These commands are aimed at frequest users of a DIRAC UI, especially if you experience latency issues, as this setup offers a caching mechanism. They do require some initial setup.

  1. Setting up your default

You only need to do this once.

$ source diracos/diracosrc $ dirac-proxy-init -g [your DIRAC group] $ dconfig –minimal

This will create a skeleton config file in ~/.dirac/dcommands.conf Now edit the configuration file using your details. If you are a member of more than one VO, you might want to setup different profiles for each.

[global] default_profile = my_dirac_group

[my_dirac_group] group_name = my_dirac_group home_dir = /my_dirac_group/user/m/mydir default_se = MYHOME-SE-disk

  1. Session Initialization

You need to do this for every session.

$ source diracos/diracosrc $ dinit

Now you are set up to use the DIRAC short commands. For a full list of what is available, please see the Commands Reference section.
