Description

Accurate modelling of high energy hadron interactions is essential for the precision analysis of data from the LHC. It is therefore imperative that the predictions of Monte Carlos used to model this physics are tested against existing and future measurements. These measurements cover a wide variety of reactions, experimental observables and kinematic regions. To make this process more reliable and easily verifiable, the CEDAR collaboration has developed a set of tools for tuning and validating models of such interactions, and for archiving the comparisons so that data from previous experiments can be easily compared to new models. JetWeb is a Java-based server which accesses SQL databases for data and model predictions, and acts as a gateway to LCG resources for CPU-intensive simulation jobs. The simulation jobs are run using the HZTool and Rivet applications, also developed within CEDAR, and the data for comparison is taken from HepData. The server already contains an array of useful data. The status, current application and view plans of the system are described.
