One of the most important studies dedicated to be solved for ATLAS physical analysis is a reconstruction of proton-proton events with large number of interactions in Transition Radiation Tracker. Paper includes Transition Radiation Tracker performance results obtained with the usage of the ATLAS GRID and Kurchatov Institute’s Data Processing Center including Tier-1 grid site and supercomputer as well as analysis of CPU efficiency during these studies.
