CMS integrated luminosity in 2012 exceeds 10/fb.
CMS has just passed another major milestone, recording more than 10 inverse femtobarns of data at 8 TeV.
Despite higher pile-up creating more complicated events, CMS improved its running efficiency and now regularly achieves efficiencies in excess of 95, 97 or even 98% each day.
This is a credit to the expertise of all the dedicated CMS operations groups.
