3 top issues effecting production

  • Sites failing and having to move workflows
    • TIFR: Latest is that they had permissions issues on /store/mc and are testing
      • production and merge jobs working, but cleanup still failing
      • Kill clone and let unified take care of it from there. When sight goes back on they should just run.
    • Submit Failures at Bristol - in Jorge's court
      • We think the problem may be solved put in a Hail Mary Clone to see if it works
      • tests are all failing, Gaston will put Bristol into drain, Jen will Kill clone all workflows set to run to Bristol, leave in assignment approved
      • when ticket is closed, Gaston will remove manual drain
    • File read/merge issues at KIPT
      • testing, having Gaston verify that permissions are set correctly on files
      • drain, kill and clone
  • Product not found: could not find HcalNoiseSummary.
  • discussions about files that are transferred and then disappear 30 min later

Site support - Gaston

News & Issues

  • About the sites:
    • Into the Waiting Room: T2_EE_Estonia
    • Out the Waiting Room: T2_FI_HIP,T2_ES_IFCA,T2_IT_Bari Sites in Waiting Room: 4 Sites in Morgue: 7



  • Julian redirected a few miniaod's to sites that were with lower load -> suggests doing the same when we have site failures.
    • did so manually and let unified take care of it


  • One bigass SUS-RunIIWinter15wmLHE (1B events, 1M jobs) running. 75% done.
