Issues from last week

  • Thanks to everyone for the twiki's and e-mail discussions on git!
    • Has anybody transferred the additional information that Jacob needed to get things working to the twiki's? I haven't looked.
    • Once I realized that git was not in fact on any of the production machines, I was able to successfully get things checked out and running on lxplus.
    • Is git installed on 112 and 98? I haven't tried there yet either.
      • talk to Krista about getting git over there
  • condor_status is a much less expensive command
  • - is hanging up on one of the workflows... This script does not work now with late binding and that is why it is crashing [vocms201] /afs/ > ./
Traceback (most recent call last): File "./", line 89, in ? EnteredCurrentStatus=int(array[4]) ValueError: invalid literal for int(): /data/srv/wmagent/v0.9.69a/install/wmagent/JobCreator/JobCache/pdmvserv_TOP-Summer11Leg-00013_00008_v0__130916_040247_1427/MonteCarloFromGEN/JobCollection_176487_15/job_2963898/condor.181857.38.log
    • is this script supposed to be reporting accurately now with late binding? answer is no. Edgar is going to have Julian look at it and they will try to get it working again.
  • 201, 216 and 235
    • Couch down on 201 & 216 over the weekend, but monitoring showed they were OK. The fact that the couch was down was masked by the AnalyticsDataCollector working on a long query
    • AnalyticsDataCollector showing as down for long periods all week
      • This issues is a side effect of a long Couch query that is currently taking 5-6 hrs to complete. If you see the collector listed as down PLEASE DO NOT JUST RESTART IT! Instead go to the machine, run the status command, make sure couch is up and happy. Tail the logs and check to see if there are actual errors. If you restart the collector during the middle of this long query it will just have to start the query all over again reseting the time it takes to run it back to 0. If you are truly unsure what to do just e-log it and SeangChan will look at it as soon as he can. He and Luis are looking at solutions to fix this problem but in the meantime we need to go back to running the status command on the machines, and tailing logs on these machines to determine if there is really a problem.
    • Higher priority workflows are getting stuck behind lower priority workflows in the agent. Can somebody explain what is going on? Here is an example:
      • When I was debugging stuck workflows I noticed that some workflows that actually have a higher priority are sitting with jobs queued and nothing pending/running, and have been that way for days
        • pdmvserv_L1T-UpgFall13-00005_00001_v0__130913_114848_5196 running-closed MonteCarlo 110000
        • pdmvserv_L1T-UpgFall13-00002_00001_v0__130913_114839_4729 running-closed MonteCarlo 110000
      • These two workflows have "lots of jobs" running despite having a lower priority of 63000
        • pdmvserv_SUS-Summer11Leg-00004_00009_v0__130920_120325_163
        • pdmvserv_TOP-Summer11Leg-00013_00008_v0__130916_040247_1427
  • There was some discussion last week in e-log about the fact that numbers between dashboard, condor and WmStats are not anywhere near the same and there isn't agreement on which numbers to believe. We need to come to some resolution here.
