 Central exclusive $J/\psi$ and $\chi_c$ production at LHCb / Stevenson, Scott (Oxford U.) Central exclusive J/{\psi} and {\chi}c meson production has been measured in decays to dimuons with the LHCb detector, in data corresponding to 36 /pb of integrated luminosity from \sqrt{s} = 7 TeV proton-proton collisions. [...] arXiv:1310.2881 ; EDSBLOIS-2013-44. - 2013. - 4 p. Preprint

 A new readout control system for the LHCb upgrade at CERN / Alessio, Federico (CERN) ; Jacobsson, Richard (CERN) The LHCb experiment has proposed an upgrade towards a full 40 MHz readout system in order to run between five and ten times its initial design luminosity. The entire readout architecture will be upgraded in order to cope with higher sub-detector occupancies, higher rate and higher network load. [...] 2012 - Published in : J.

 Optimization of the HLT resource consumption in the LHCb experiment / Frank, M (CERN) ; Gaspar, C (CERN) ; van Herwijnen, E (CERN) ; Jost, B (CERN) ; Neufeld, N (CERN) ; Schwemmer, R (CERN) Today's computing elements for software based high level trigger processing (HLT) are based on nodes with multiple cores. Using process based parallelization to filter particle collisions from the LHCb experiment on such nodes leads to expensive consumption of memory and hence significant cost increase.

 A new data-centre for the LHCb experiment / Brarda, Lo (CERN) ; Jost, Beat (CERN) ; Lacarrere, Daniel (CERN) ; Lindner, Rolf (CERN) ; Neufeld, Niko (CERN) ; Roy, Laurent (CERN) ; Thomas, Eric (CERN) The upgraded LHCb experiment, which is supposed to go into operation in 2018/19 will require a massive increase in its computer facilities. A new 2 MW data-centre is planned at the LHCb site. [...] 2012 - 6 p. - Published in : J. Phys.: Conf.

 Major changes to the LHCb Grid computing model in year 2 of LHC data / Arrabito, L (CC, Villeurbanne) ; Bernardoff, V (CERN) ; Bouvet, D (CC, Villeurbanne) ; Cattaneo, M (CERN) ; Charpentier, P (CERN) ; Clarke, P (Edinburgh U.) ; Closier, J (CERN) ; Franchini, P (INFN, Ferrara) ; Graciani, R (Barcelona U.) ; Lanciotti, E (CERN) et al. The increase of luminosity of the LHC in 2011 also introduced an increase of computing requirements for data processing. This paper describes the data processing operations during 2011 prompt reconstruction as well as the end of year re-processing of the full data sample. [...] 2012 - 8 p. - Published in : J.

 LHCb Online Log Analysis and Maintenance System / Garnier, J-C (CERN) ; Brarda, L (CERN) ; Neufeld, N (CERN) ; Nikolaidis, F (CERN) History has shown, many times computer logs are the only information an administrator may have for an incident, which could be caused either by a malfunction or an attack. Due to the huge amount of logs that are produced from large-scale IT infrastructures, such as LHCb Online, critical information may be overlooked or simply be drowned in a sea of other messages.
