The expected performance of the CNGS facility in terms of protons on target and production of neutrinos is described in the CNGS technical reports. A summary of results, updated in November 2000, is given here. 

Proton beam

- first muon detector: 2.5 x 107 muons per cm2 per 1013 protons on target
- second muon detector:  4 x 105 muons per cm2 per 1013 protons on target
