  • quiet week.... shhhhh enjoy it... don't get too used to it.

    • Most failures happening at RAL

Sara's notes

Agent Issues

  • WorkQueue issue, things stuck in running-closed (because of dataset location?)
  • vocms235 JobStatusLite (crashing too often)

Redeployment plan

  • vocms234 - done
  • vocms202 draining
  • new patches applied
  • we need to figure out what is in couch and get it to clear out properly so that when we are in full blown produciton it works


  • Things are slow, Dave is putting in some backfill to work network connections.


  • next round in Sept
  • There were 2 wf's with duplicates, we need to track back how far back were the dupilicates, and invalidate things.


  • Julian has worked up an issues page for ReDigi. (the url changed a bit).
    • Does it have everything we need?
    • What else do we need?
  • Workflows stuck in running-closed for more than a day.
    • Rather than just force completing them I'm working with SeangChan to figure out why they are stuck so we can fix the problem.
    • found an old WF that was run against dbs2 that was causing things not to properly update the last 2 months. This has been fixed and things are now moving.

T1's summary


  • nothing... literally

Store Results

  • Few tickets open (4)
    • Two tickets with 99% and 98% but no failures (is that normal?) 51767 51776
  • Phedex subscription pending for approval 421611
  • Migrating to central ReqMgr/WMStats, is cmsweb compatible now?


  • running smoothly
  • next round of upgrade MC coming "middle of next week" which probably means Friday
  • MC validation campain in Oct/Nov

RelVal Andrew

  • what does this parameter mean: "trustSiteLists" ?
  • can we use xrootd to read mcpileup datasets?
