The calorimeters of LHCb (ECAL, HCAL, PRS and SPD) are used in the level-0 trigger
system of the experiment, to detect high transverse momentum hadrons , photons,
electrons and pi0. An overview of the LHCb calorimeter triggering system, which
consists of several layers of electronics boards is presented. The commissioning and
the performances of the system are discussed, in particular the results obtained with
cosmic rays.
