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 workqueue, they are not in global queue Seangchan can you look at it today
    • everything looks correctly assigned but they have been sitting in assigned for 4 hours we need to keep an eye on it today - Edgar will look at 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 wo
