cmdsd+dcache/xrootd door

last meeting:

  • Sarah: dCache xrootd door's performance similar to dCap door.
  • A "authorization" plugin for the dCache/xrootd door which uses the cached GFN->LFN information to correctly respond to GFN requests (Hiro/Shawn/?). Hiro, will work on a Java API for LFC first.
this meeting:
  • Ilija is working on the plug-in. propose a meeting during the CHEP2012 week with dCache developr (Paul).

Xrootd release 3.1.0 deployment

Summary of previous meetings: notes only
  • Xrootd releases come out with some functional validation by stakeholders and large sites. But lack a formal release validation process.
  • CMS abandoned Dcap plug-in for Xrootd OFS. They use dCache xrootd door directly or Xrootd overlap dCache.
  • Known issues:
    • RPM updates overwrite /etc/init.d/{xrootd,cmsd} which have LFC environment setup. Those setup should go to /etc/system/xrootd which survives rpm updates. Patrick will test it.
  • SWT2: N2N? crashing issue is understood (conflict of signal usage in regular xrootd and Globus). Solution is either use a proxy, or regular xrootd with "async off".
  • Xrootd 3.1.1 is ready for deployment at all sites.
this meeting
  • Issue with 3.2.0/3.2.1. site should either stay at 3.1.1, or upgrade to 3.2.1. Do not stay at 3.2.0.
