Integration program update (Rob, Michael)

Review status of SRM v2 and Space Tokens

  • See also MinutesMay2SpaceTokens
  • srmcp - have we given up entirely?
  • Next version of dcache may not require srmcp.
  • Upcoming release of dCache may not require srm - but the one that uses dccp.
  • Pilot still needs work. And other Panda developments.
  • All we can do is keep the old
  • AGLT2 - ATLASDATADISK - tested; 90 TB
  • SLAC - tested; 50 TB
  • BU - tested; 160 TB RAW
  • SW - setup, not tested; 60 TB
  • MW - working still.

RSV-SE probes

  • Xin - has tested RSV-SE probe in the new release, running on the SRM door node; works. Reports correctly to the RSV collector at the GOC. srm-ping, srm-cp
  • Would like to use existing infrastructure on OSG 0.8 gatekeepers.
  • for SRM-dCache - probe is ready.
  • for Bestman-xrootd - a minor issue needs to be resolved. Wei thinks won't be a problem. Sites will need to upgrade their bestman-xrootd. Wei will follow-up with Arvind and Alex.

CCRC08 news

  • Managed centrally - need to communicate the four endpoints that are ready to Stephane and Alexei.
  • Make sure old CCRC08 data is deleted - mainly for free space.
  • 10 TB is the minimum

Next procurements

LRC modifications for user data deletion

  • See SiteCertificationP5
  • Heads-up minimal testing. AGLT2 trying it out now - Hiro sending additional information. Send feedback to Charles for official instructions. Gridsite must be enabled.

Analysis Queue Update

  • Analysis workshop next week at Argonne
  • Auto-site selection now working well - Marco's testing.
  • FDR1 reprocessing status? "This week", but nothing started.

Operations: Production (Mark, Kaushik)

  • After the dCache upgrade at BNL, there were issues with Panda Mover. US cloud was basically off. Issues cleared up on the BNL side.
  • On-going push to get last sites to autopilot. Transitioning BU last - all looks okay.
    • Next on list will be MWT2. Waiting for Paul - one of wrapper scripts need changes for dCache sites. Hopefully by end of week.
    • Then Tier3's
  • There may be pile-up jobs requiring lots of input files - that take only 30 minutes to run, but hours to stage input files. Not much we can do.
  • Bit of a backlog

Operations: DDM (Hiro)

  • http://www.usatlas.bnl.gov/dq2/monitor - development stalled, will monitor space used by users.
  • DQ2 site service upgrade status/plan
    • Follow-up: 0.6.6 - no word from Miguel. Old version is not updating the dashboard very well.
  • Concerned about space at BNL - but new storage is coming online soon.

RSV --> SAM (Fred)

  • Please see this link: http://www.usatlas.bnl.gov/twiki/bin/view/Admins/MonitoringServices
  • Follow-up status:
    • All sites are in the RSV monitor.
    • On SAM side, waiting to resolve uta.edu versus swt2.org. Not an issue at the UTA site; assuming being handled at GOC.
  • For AGLT2-muon-calibration FTS channel - still need to report through BNL? Answer - yes.

Throughput initiative - status (Shawn)

Nagios monitoring subcommittee (Dantong)

  • No news.

Panda release installation issues (Xin)

  • Follow-up on the pacball-based method next week. No update.

  • Sites at OU, UC, BNL all ready for VO testing.
  • Rob testing Panda submission.

Site news and issues (all sites)

  • T1: Hiro reports that storage is tight. Adding a 16 TB thumper today. Main implication is for FDR data and CCRC data transfers. Will be resolved by tomorrow.
  • AGLT2: all okay; some cpu drop at midnight last night.
  • NET2: all okay; SRM v2 up and running; still waiting from IBM a 10G replacement.
  • MWT2: all okay; running into some scaling issues with addition of new nodes (number of tcp sockets, etc). Upgraded all head nodes recently.
  • SWT2 (UTA): all okay; 1 day shutdown on 21st for electrical work on distribution panels.
  • SWT2 (OU): working on 10G cards and routing tests for the external network. FTS problems reported by Yuri? (Hiro thinks a minor problem.)
  • WT2: running fine, no best.
