DBS Migrations fail causing Publisher failures

  • Diagnosis:
    • Publication Aquired plot in develops a significat (>1k) baseline, indicating that some files are stuck in Aquired and never get published. This can be due to many reasons, but failed migrations is a known cause and needs to be looked at first.
    • log on crab-prod-tw02 or wherever appropriate, do sudo su crab3 then do:
      • cd ~/Utils
      • source
      • optionally do a git pull on the CRABServer directory there if the scripts indicated here need updating
      • python  CRABServer/scripts/Utils/ --file /data/container/Publisher_schedd/logs/migrations/TerminallyFailedLog.txt
      • typical output
        [crab3@crab-prod-tw02 Utils]$ python  CRABServer/scripts/Utils/ --file /data/container/Publisher_schedd/logs/migrations/TerminallyFailedLog.txt 
        Found 4 unique migration IDs logged as terminally failed
        Check current status
         2987219 has been removed

  • Cure
    • failed migrations must be reported to DBS experts for investigation
    • if DBS expert says "go ahead and remove it" or simply we want/need to get rid of the backlog w/o waiting for the expert, we can remove the failed migration ourselves with
    • python  CRABServer/scripts/Utils/ --id 2987329 or whatever the correct id is
    • the command will check the migration Id, make sure that it is one which makes sense to remove and ask for confirmation before doing it. CRAB Publisher will create new publication requests as needed, but if we want to speed up things it can done now as well, the command prints out instructions for that.
    • Example
       [crab3@crab-prod-tw02 Utils]$ python  CRABServer/scripts/Utils/ --id 2987329
      migrationId: 2987329 was created on 2021-01-02 06:19:22 by for block:
      Do you want to remove it ? Yes/[No]: N
      [crab3@crab-prod-tw02 Utils]$ python  CRABServer/scripts/Utils/ --id 2987329
      migrationId: 2987329 was created on 2021-01-02 06:19:22 by for block:
      Do you want to remove it ? Yes/[No]: Y
      Removing it...
      Migration 2987329 successfully removed
      CRAB Publisher will issue such a migration request again as/when needed
      but if you want to recreated it now, you can do it  with this python fragment
      import CRABClient
      from dbs.apis.dbsClient import DbsApi
      apiMig = DbsApi(url=migUrl)
      data= {'migration_url': globUrl, 'migration_input': block}
      result = apiMig.submitMigration(data)
      newId = result.get('migration_details', {}).get('migration_request_id')
      print('new migration created: %d' % newId)
      status = apiMig.statusMigration(migration_rqst_id=newId)
      [crab3@crab-prod-tw02 Utils]$
