Topics for this week

  • BNL new storage status - Pedro
    • 5 Thorr's ready, each ~30 TB usable
    • Current performance is not very good - test underway
    • ConditionsDB? - provision 2 TB times 3 copies for next 6 months
    • Storage on ACAS nodes will go away by end of 2009
    • ~101 TB will be retired March 24th, almost all on BNLPANDA, most files are seldom accessed, so decide to simply retire them
  • Recent file corruptions - Shawn, Hiro
    • Large number of files from (at least) one compute node at AGLT2 had bad adler32
    • Jobs were finished successfully, so corrupted files are now in system
    • Shawn will prepare list of corrupted files, so they can be cleaned up
    • Software changes needed to prevent future problems:
      • Need new Panda sitemover to also check adler32 from dcache, before registering in LFC (Paul's todo-list)
      • Need FTS to check adler32 after transfer (in workplan - Wei is checking?)
      • BNLPANDA SS plug-in to check adler32 from BNL dcache against original, and fail tranfer if they do not match (Hiro + consultation with ADC)
    • John is seeing some corruption errors with RAW files - will follow up
  • Hot issues
    • GROUPDISK filling up - Shawn
      • Could be dark files, possibly hundreds of failed copies per file (random check of one file shows 114 copies)
      • ToA? seems to be wrong - causing all attempts to fail (grpdisk vs GROUPDISK)
      • Continue to follow-up: why no error seen in dashboard, why DQ2 trying so many times...
  • AOB
    • Change to earlier time slot - request from Alexei
      • Noon CDT work for everyone - will switch time starting next week
