    There is a “bunch crossing” every 25 nsecs.
    There are 100 “triggers” per second
    Each triggered event is ~1 MByte in size

    Physicists work on analysis “channels”.
    Each institute will have ~10 physicists working on one or more channels
    Data for these channels should be cached by the institute server
