Issues with Monitoring using WMStats

  • problems with couch are causing ongoing issues with monitoring with WMStats

Agent issues

  • vocms216 is being upgraded - all new jobs will be submitted and shouldn't have the isses of 201 & 235 because the problems we were having were due to large number of lumis and that has been addressed
  • vocms85 not running many jobs, but seems OK
  • vocms237 Not creating new jobs
    • not creating cleanup jobs - Edgar has asked Seangchan to look
  • vocms201 & 235
    • couch has problem with documents, some of documents are bigger than it can handle unless we upgrade couch
    • Diego suggested disabling monitoring so jobs can move on,
    • no easy solution for right now, Seangchan has been without computer for 2 days so he will start to look at it again today
    • let's put both agents in drain, finish what we have and clean up when they are done
    • we will not be able to monitor workflows on these 2 machines for the time being in WMStats
      • the lower level detail page information is still there there is just no information on the front page.


  • we can not get information from dashboard to WMStats
  • we would like to retire old GlobalMonitor
    • reg expression search
    • access to local queue so we can determine why workflows are not closing out
    • Seangchan is trying to put these two features in WMStats hopefully we can retire old Global Monitor after the July release
  • Creation of ACDC from WMStats no longer works and that needs to get fixed again

Krista has requested help testing WMAgent on cmssrv101 with the new condor/glideinwms rpm install

  • If Seanchan and I are not able to do this today, Edgar would you be able to do so late your day/early ours later this week?
    • Jen, Seangchan and Krista are going to try to meet this afternoon at 2, If we don't get things done I will let you know.

Andrew issues:

  • workflows stuck in assigned on 113
    • workflows are not in the global queue Seangchan can you look at it today, if it's not fixed will reply to the e-log with what he tried so Edgar knows where to start when he comes back online
    • everything looks correctly assigned but they have been sitting in assigned for 4 hours we need to keep an eye on it today
  • Dataset naming - JeanRoch is complaining about dataset naming, there are some cases where we want to write to an existing dataset ie ACDC or extend statistics for MC GENSIM
  • we need to put a warning to an existing dataset Edgar will help write the script that will give a warning if we are writing to an existing dataset
