  • Backfill
    • is it just me, or is work getting "stuck" behind the low priority backfill. I had a lot of jobs just sit in queued for a day even though there wasn't anything higher priority running. I bumped up the priority of the WF's and things sarted moving again. I also force completed a few old WF's that were stuck. And we've been restarting components, so a number of things could be happening but we need to make sure we keep an eye on this!
    • we have been tracking sites that are not running properly and the glidin team is watching it



  • 2 miniaod's with 100% error ProductNotFound: Needs to be sent back to requestor
  • these are teh 2 oldest requests in the system can we PLEASE get them returned so we can reject them!


  • Manually closed out the last of the ReReco's, too many lumi's per job to process any further
