Topics for this week

  • Space status - Armen, Kaushik
    • We are running short of space everywhere
    • New data distribution plan being discussed in ADC - it will be tried in US first
      • US Tier 2's will get data when users need it, Panda will make subscriptions, rather than AKTR sending copies of all data irrespective of popularity
      • All US sites like this plan - we would like the maximum number of copies, for very popular datasets to be more than 2
    • BNL: looks OK, 400 TB free on MCDISK, 300 TB free on DATADISK, Pedro/Armen will check logs if deletion is missing some files
    • MWT2: OK. Charles - trying something new, a cron which balances distribution among tokens, make all space tokens have same fraction of free space
    • AGLT2: relatively OK. Shawn - 160 TB free, 100 TB cleaned during the weekend, which helped.
    • Saul - NET2: dramatically improved. Expect new storage ~3 weeks. Armen - still some dark data.
    • Wei - SLACT2: only 29 TB left, FTS stopped. Need more central deletion. Armen - see 20 TB dark data. Wei - will run consistency check.
    • Patrick - SWT2: 40 TB free, can free up another 40 TB, can add 200 TB this week, another 200 TB in few weeks
  • USERDISK deletions - Hiro
    • Armen - helped a lot with BNL, Tier 2's in progress
  • DATADISK/MCDISK deletions - Armen, Wensheng
    • Going well.
  • Slow transfers to Tier 2's - Hiro
  • Hot issues
  • AOB
    • Action item - Hiro looking for dark files on MCDISK and DATADISK at BNL
    • Action item - Need to automatically delete empty datasets older than 2 weeks - Charles will look into making script
    • Action item - checksum by pilot at AGLT2, needs to update glite, Shawn/Bob will look into it. Done.
    • Action item - why incomplete datasets on HOTDISK? Shawn will follow up. OK - only new datasets. Done.
    • Action item - delete-obsolete. Tier 2's will try. Armen - study the dump of what was deleted. Everything looks ok. Done.
    • Action item - Kaushik will follow up on topic of making all US sites consistent with long/short names in LFC
