A Luminosity and triggers

    I was wondering whether the integrated luminosity depends on the triggers that were running.
    Thing is that for several time periods, some triggers in the detector may not be running. Wouldn't that affect the luminosity of the data?

    Normally the luminosity is reported for the triggers used.
