News - DIMA

  • We have tons of work: new 74X DigiReco campaign has started.

3 top issues effecting production

  • Once the memory limits on the workflows were adjusted, things have been running smoothly
  • Workflows that were stuck in acquired due to having sites in both the white and black list
    • we have a hacked in work around for this right now, we need to remember to tell Alan when these WF's are done so he can rip it back out again *one 2023 needs to be cloned and memory increased

Site support - John



  • Newest campaign RunIISpring15DR74
    • Looks like out test WF's are running smoothly. Chatted with Dave on Wed, considering we have no MC going on, and a LOT of Redigi to do, was wondering about the possibility of running some of the low priorirty work on T2's? Work we can afford to have failures on and re-do again if we need to. Discuss
    • we should identify some low priority workflows whose input doesn't include PU and is relatively light so it stands a chance of succeeding and give it a try.
    • try low and slow, Madison might be a good place to start so we can Kill Ajit's site and we have him to help us figure out how to do this.


  • is now pretty much MC processing
  • everything is flowing just fine


  • ongoing cosmic processing where are we? Julian will take a look tomorrow.

Store Results

  • there are 2 in failed, can we move them to rejected? OK Julian is doing so


  • nothing to report

Agent Issues

  • Only one weird thing, every 2-3 days we are seeing PhEDEx is getting behind and closeout is getting delayed, looks like PhEDEx injector gets stuck and it needs to be restarted it's not giving an error. Next time Julian sees this he will bug Alan and SeangChan
  • Alan - issue with condor ssh to job not ever going way agents were getting overloaded, SeangChan will look for elog
    • may be related to the condor version rather than the ssh version
    • known issue, Brian said they fixed and it will come out in the next version of Condor

Redeployment Plan

  • next month after production deployment we will test new version and it will include a couple things that Andrew wants. We are currently testing and debugging. Separate the complete workflow and cleaning up of workflows.

RelVal Andrew

  • Issue about dataset name checking, did it get discuessed what to do about it? Yes check both sides when we create the request, not deployed this month. new parameter for ignoreing the fact that we are writing to same dataset when we do ACDC/extend workflows.
