This is an example of the C++ code (and its configuration in Python) needed to extract the trigger information from CMS Open/Legacy data. These instructions are valid to work with 2011 data. Snippets of this software can be used for physics analysis.
The examples, within the code, have plenty of in-line comments to make it more understandable and to point potential users to the original information sources. It has been put together compiling the most important pieces of already-available CMSSW software.
Use this with any CMS 2011 primary dataset and/or Monte Carlo datasets.
If you do not have the CERN Virtual Machine for 2011 CMS data installed, follow the instructions in step 1 at How to install a CERN Virtual Machine.
To run the analysis, follow the instructions at https://github.com/cms-opendata-analyses/trigger_examples/tree/2011/TriggerInfo/TriggerInfoAnalyzer.
