  • Jen will be taking some vacation time in Mid August exact dates TBD

Issues last week

  • Over weekend couch replication went down on 216 causing MC production to come to a halt

  • Diego was able to fix Monday morning, how hard is it? Do we need Diego/Seanchan to do this or is this something operations should do? We can't be loosing an entire weekend of processing on a regular basis

* Problems with updates to the closeout script

  • closeout script was marking WF's as duplicates that didn't have duplicate issues

  • Jacob and Jen spent Friday debugging and verifying that it is OK to close out ReDigi WF's that "only failed duplication"

  • this issue also is effecting Step0, Diego fixed the logic for the Step0 but ReDigi is still Broken

Site Issues



  • Continuing work with Resubmission script
  • Need to address Step0/1 issues

Action Items

  • Recovery workflows - Jen - ongoing
    • Diego got us an updated recovery workflow script!
    • discovered that the recovery workflows were creating some duplicates
  • we need to add a daily report on Workflow stats
    • How many workflows running, pending, waiting, stuck -
      • Jen -come up with template report
      • Edgar - please comment on workflow statuses I feel like we are not always communicating what workflows are in a waiting status for various issues
      • Diego - how hard would it be to have a "manual switch" that we can set on workflows for "waiting" so if there is a group of workflows that we are waiting back from a site/requesters to close out we can put the workflows in waiting so that things that are in "complete" really are ready to be closed or need to be looked at.
  • Diego - Can we have the script you wrote for finding stuck workflows?
    • Diego will put it in a public place so we can add it to svn
    • Is it documented yet?
      • need to pull documentaion out of e-log and put it on the twiki - Jen
  • Problems with dbsTest.py - done???
