Rucio CLI: Examples

Rucio provides several commands for the end-user. See man pages.

Getting user information

The first thing you might try is to check who you are:

$ rucio whoami
status     : ACTIVE
account    : jdoe
account_type : SERVICE
created_at : 2014-01-17T07:52:18
updated_at : 2014-01-17T07:52:18
suspended_at : None
deleted_at : None
email      : jdoe@blahblah.com

You can switch between different accounts by setting the RUCIO_ACCOUNT variable:

$ export RUCIO_ACCOUNT=root
$ rucio whoami
status     : ACTIVE
account    : jdoe
account_type : SERVICE
created_at : 2014-01-17T07:51:59
updated_at : 2014-01-17T07:51:59
suspended_at : None
deleted_at : None
email      : root@blahblah.com

If you try to authenticate with an account that is not mapped with your credentials:

$ export RUCIO_ACCOUNT=janedoe
$ rucio whoami
cannot get auth_token
 2018-01-30 16:50:08,554 ERROR   Cannot authenticate.
 Details: x509 authentication failed
 2018-01-30 16:50:08,554 ERROR   Please verify that your proxy is still valid and renew it if needed.

Querrying basic information about RSEs

You can query the list of available RSEs:

$ rucio list-rses
SITE1_DISK
SITE1_TAPE
SITE2_DISK
SITE2_SCRATCH
SITE3_TAPE

If the RSEs are tagged with attributes you can build RSE expressions and query the sites matching these expressions:

$ rucio list-rses --expression "tier=1&disk=1"
SITE1_DISK
SITE2_DISK

Querying information about DIDs

To list all the possible scopes:

$ rucio list-scopes
mc
data
user.jdoe
user.janedoe

You can query the DIDs matching a certain pattern. It always requires to specify the scope in which you want to search:

$ rucio list-dids user.jdoe:*
+-------------------------------------------+--------------+
| SCOPE:NAME                                | [DID TYPE]   |
|-------------------------------------------+--------------|
| user.jdoe:user.jdoe.test.container.1234.1 | CONTAINER    |
| user.jdoe:user.jdoe.test.container.1234.2 | CONTAINER    |
| user.jdoe:user.jdoe.test.dataset.1        | DATASET      |
| user.jdoe:user.jdoe.test.dataset.2        | DATASET      |
| user.jdoe:test.file.1                     | FILE         |
| user.jdoe:test.file.2                     | FILE         |
| user.jdoe:test.file.3                     | FILE         |
|-------------------------------------------+--------------|

You can filter by key/value, e.g.:

$ rucio list-dids --filter type=CONTAINER
+-------------------------------------------+--------------+
| SCOPE:NAME                                | [DID TYPE]   |
|-------------------------------------------+--------------|
| user.jdoe:user.jdoe.test.container.1234.1 | CONTAINER    |
| user.jdoe:user.jdoe.test.container.1234.2 | CONTAINER    |
|-------------------------------------------+--------------|

If you want to resolve a collection (CONTAINER or DATASET) into the list of its constituents:

$ rucio list-content user.jdoe:user.jdoe.test.container.1234.1
+------------------------------------+--------------+
| SCOPE:NAME                         | [DID TYPE]   |
|------------------------------------+--------------|
| user.jdoe:user.jdoe.test.dataset.1 | DATASET      |
| user.jdoe:user.jdoe.test.dataset.2 | DATASET      |
+------------------------------------+--------------+

You can resolve also the collections (CONTAINER or DATASET) into the list of files:

$ rucio list-content user.jdoe:user.jdoe.test.container.1234.1
+-----------------------+--------------------------------------+-------------+------------+----------+
| SCOPE:NAME            | GUID                                 | ADLER32     | FILESIZE   | EVENTS   |
|-----------------------+--------------------------------------+-------------+------------+----------|
| user.jdoe:test.file.1 | 9DF32550-D0D1-4482-9A26-0FBC46D6902A | ad:56fb0723 | 39.247 kB  |          |
| user.jdoe:test.file.2 | 67E8CF14-F953-45F3-B3F5-E6143F89915F | ad:e3e573b5 | 636.075 kB |          |
| user.jdoe:test.file.3 | 32CD7F8E-944B-4EA4-83E3-BABE48DB5751 | ad:22849380 | 641.427 kB |          |

Rules operations

You can create a new rule like this:

$ rucio add-rules --lifetime 1209600 user.jdoe:user.jdoe.test.container.1234.1 1 "tier=1&disk=1"
a12e5664555a4f12b3cc6991db5accf9

The command returns the rule_id of the rule.

You can list the rules for a particular DID:

$ rucio list-rules user.jdoe:user.jdoe.test.container.1234.1
ID                                ACCOUNT    SCOPE:NAME                                 STATE[OK/REPL/STUCK]    RSE_EXPRESSION        COPIES  EXPIRES (UTC)
--------------------------------  ---------  -----------------------------------------  ----------------------  ------------------  --------  -------------------
a12e5664555a4f12b3cc6991db5accf9  jdoe       user.jdoe:user.jdoe.test.container.1234.1  OK[3/0/0]               tier=1&disk=1       1         2018-02-09 03:57:46
b0fcde2acbdb489b874c3c4537595adc  janedoe    user.jdoe:user.jdoe.test.container.1234.1  REPLICATING[4/1/1]      tier=1&tape=1       2
4a6bd85c13384bd6836fbc06e8b316d7  mc         user.jdoe:user.jdoe.test.container.1234.1  OK[3/0/0]               tier=1&tape=1       2

The state indicates how many locks (physical replicas of the files) are OK, Replicating or Stuck

Accessing files

The command to download DIDs locally is called rucio download. It supports various sets of option. You can invoke it like this:

# rucio download user.jdoe:user.jdoe.test.container.1234.1
