Workflow Team Meeting - March 5 4PM CERN time

Vidyo Link



  • FNAL: Jen, Seangchan, Luis, Matteo
  • US: Ajit, Ian,
  • CERN : Andrew, Alan, Julian
  • EU: Dima


  • Luis to Colombia around May 1-10???? talk on the 6th
  • Julian out over Easter Holidays March 28-April 4
  • Alan Unavailable Fri-Tues


* The Monday CompOps Meeting is changing format. Matteo will be reporting for operations.
    • Julian I know you have some scripts that you run to produce the plots etc that normally get presented. Do you want to turn them over? Or just run them for Matteo?
    • Matteo, what kind of backup do you want from us?

Site support

Opportunistic sites

  • Can we use CERN HLT (~15K slots) for MC production during beam fills ? If so, how to go about it ?
  • Discussing starting this week Christoph wanted to see if this is possible, what we can and can not do. Subscribing to cms-das-cloud list to start learning how to use opportunistic sites. How much can we accomplish with 8 hrs that we could get from these machines? we need to optimise for 2-3 hr jobs. Ajit will forward threadd to WF team group.

Agent Issues

  • more cleanup was needed to the workflows from last week's couch issues. Looks like all the WF's have now been assigned and are just waiting for resources
    • This guy is still giving us some replication troubles: alahiff_TAU-2019GEMUpg14DR-00029_00075_v0__150224_140549_6688
      • Last block is marked as cancelled, but is giving us problems still.

Redeployment plan

production SL6
submit1 (up)
submit2 (ready to wake)
cmssrv217 (up)
cmssrv218 (up)
cmssrv219 (ready to wake)
vocms0308 (up)
vocms0309 (drain)
vocms0310 (up)


  • Found problem with recovery script, when you run it on workflows that have whitelists it ignores the whitelist when it makes the recovery workflows. Julian was looking into it.


  • File read errors for Step2, but there were SOME successes:
    • pdmvserv_TOP-Phys14DR-00025_00108_v0__150216_193554_5119
      • /TBarToLeptons_t-channel_Tune4C_CSA14_13TeV-aMCatNLO-tauola/Phys14DR-PU20bx25_tsg_PHYS14_25_V1-v1/GEN-SIM-RAW 100.0%

  • Three TCh:
    • task_SMP-Summer12WMLHE-00011 : 98% GEN, 92% GEN-SIM, 54% AODSIM, 44% DQM
    • task_SMP-Summer12WMLHE-00010: 97% GEN, 76% GEN-SIM, 64%AODSIM, 60% DQM
    • task_TOP-Summer12WMLHE-00081: Had at least one output collision - Not assigned. No reply yet (do we reject it?) HyperNews


  • Nothing to report


  • We have a skim flowing:
    • amaltaro_CosmicsSP_732_Feb9test_732_150302_231736_5479
    • The original is still completed: vlimant_CosmicsSP_732_Feb9test_732_150216_142419_5298
    • Who is taking care of assigning and announcing this? asking if we need to reject the v1?

Store Results

  • Nothing to report


  • Nothing to report

RelVal Andrew


  • how do we communicate when we move workflows to closed out by hand. Come up with proceedure and document on the twiki page above.
