News - Dima

  • We need to get data done! Very serious
    • the workflows that are in assist-man and at 100% are actually 99.999 something so run recovery
Hi everyone,

I'm so sorry, my internet connection is quite unstable this afternoon. I just wanted to comment on two questions that were raised: 1) recovery procedure: as Jen said, it checks input x output and then create a special resubmission workflow for a single dataset, ignoring all the other output tiers. Thus, duplicates will be seen only if someone creates and assigns exactly the same json/request. 2) intermediate output for StepChain: I think the goal was to get it done for February, unfortunately due to holidays and me being vagabundo it was not accomplished. It will be done for March cmsweb.

Let me know in case you guys have any additional questions to me, I'll start replying tomorrow evening.

Cheers, Alan.

  • Long term we will get more and more "monsters" running so we need to learn to manage them.

3 top issues effecting production

  • manpower
  • site issues at Ioannia and ncp
  • too many files open temp cvms issue, error. Try resubmitting and see if they just run.

Site support - Gaston

  • Problems at T2_EE_Estonia were caused by missing kernel sources. The site should be functional now.

  • We are still investigating issues with T2_GR_Ioannina

  • T2_UK_SGrid_RALPP issues were caused by overload of storage system, they've requested a reduction of DIGI-RECO workflows.

    • Current Waiting Room:* T2_IN_TIFR, T2_RU_IHEP, T2_RU_SINP, T2_TH_CUNSTDA, T2_RU_INR

    • Current Morgue:* T2_PL_Warsaw, T2_TR_METU, T2_RU_PNPI, T2_RU_ITEP, T2_MY_UPM_BIRUNI, T2_RU_RRC_KI
