3 top issues affecting production

  • MaxWallTimeMins: some jobs were having very big values, hence not matching in the global pool.
    • Proposed solution: Estimate the MaxWallTimeMins based on job workload (how it's done now) and set Min and Max boundaries (configurable), so no job gets spawned with more than that.
  • TP2023's delaying everything
    • 3.5GB was assigned to KIT, Wiscon, Nebras, Legnaro, Caltech - 8 days and only 60%
      • Reassigned high memory sites only (FNAL, KIT, Wis, Nebras, etc.) - 1 day- already half of the jobs.
    • 3.0GB was assigned including Legnaro,
      • Cloned with high memory sites. 3 days (96% already)
    • This was affecting a lot of wf's with lower prio that got jobs waiting for those sites. (more than 20wfs with no progress in the last 5 days)
      • After reassigned they got unstuck.
