  • No production or staged rollout releases since the beginning of July.
  • Remember that the end of standard updates for gLite 3.2 + 3.1 WMS + 3.1 lcg-CE is 31.10.2011 (except DPM, LFC and FTS until 30.04.2011). For more details check the gLite support calendar.
  • gLite 3.2 releases can be now tracked under http://tinyurl.com/gLitePatches.
    • A patch for lcmaps is ready to fix job submission problems detected with Terena user certificates. This was reported in GGUS:67040. A new CREAM patch will be prepared to integrate this fix (expected at the end of September, is this a reasonable deadline?)
    • A new version of DPM/LFC 1.8.2-1 is under preparation.

News

  • EMI-1 release was announced on 19.05.2011. The release notes are available here.
  • Reminder on gLite 3.2 support:
    • gLite 3.2 will be under Standard Support until October 2011.
    • Standard support means bug fixes and minor functionality of a certain priority. This will be analysed on a case by case basis. The official channel to ask for a bug fix/minor feature in gLite 3.2 is GGUS. Awareness on important GGUS tickets can be raised at the WLCG Tier 1 SC meeting and GDB or by contacting gd-release-team@cernNOSPAMPLEASE.ch.
    • Note that services that are not in glite 3.2 by now don't fall under this definition (i.e. WMS).
    • Security Updates will be supported only until April 2012 (date for EMI-2 release). This means security updates fixing vulnerabilities whose target date falls within that date, according to the SVG assessment: https://wiki.egi.eu/wiki/SVG:SVG
  • Check the gLite support calendar to be up to date on retirement dates.
  • Find the updated list of scheduled releases in the Savannah task tracker: EGEE JRA1 workplan: This tracker is now empty. No releases are foreseen.

  • A retirement calendar for gLite 3.2 is being prepared with specific details. In the meantime, be aware that gLite is fully supported until EMI-1 is released by April 29th. Fully supported means bug fixes and minor functionality of a certain priority. Services that are not in glite 3.2 by now don't fall under this definition (i.e. WMS, CONDOR_utils and PX). In particular:
    • CREAM 1.6.x from glite 3.2 will be the version to be used until there are reasons to upgrade to newer versions of CREAM from EMI.
    • WMS will not be backported into gLite 3.2. WMS will be taken from EMI.

gLite 3.1 Support

  • EGI and gLite are collaborating to define a procedure to retire grid middleware. As far as the part related to development is concerned, the gLite collaboration would like to officially propose the following steps for services moving from gLite 3.1 to gLite 3.2 (Based on EGEE grid middleware retiring process):
    • When the gLite 3.2 version of a service has been in production and no significant problems have been seen for 1 calendar month, gLite proposes the gLite 3.1 version of the service to be made obsolete.
    • The gLite collaboration proposes a set of deadlines for each service that is a candidate to be made obsolete. The deadlines are:
      • The end of standard updates, this means no new feature and no bug fixes. Security updates will still be provided.
      • The end of security updates.
    • The proposal is presented in the Tier 1 Coordination meeting. From that moment, all interested parties will have 2 weeks to give feedback on the proposal. If there are objections, then the matter will be discussed at the GDB. If there are no objections, the agreed calendar will be broadcast to all NGIs and VOs and will be added to the gLite web pages containing all relevant information for migration from 3.1 to 3.2 per service basis.
    • In addition, a reminder will be broadcast and announced at the Tier 1 Coordination meeting 1 week before the due date.

  • Note that no deadline is proposed for end of official support of the service in Production (including both user support and operational support), since we consider this is an operational issue out of the scope of the gLite development.
  • Note that after gathering feedback from WLCG, the proposal will also be brought to EGI bodies for final recommendation.

  • The candidate services for being made obsolete in gLite 3.1 are:

Service Name Released on gLite 3.2 Date to stop standard updates Date to stop security updates

News

  • As agreed on the GDB on 09.06.2010, a twiki page summarising the status of gLite 3.1 services in order to decide upon the support on gLite 3.1 has been produced. A decision will be made by WLCG on which gLite 3.1 services can stop being supported.
  • A new release of the lcg-CA 1.35 was announced on 21.06.2010. A quick fix release was done one week after to fix a problem with a Polish CA and was announced on 30.06.2010. Details can be found under lcg-CA 1.36.

What is under development

The following service versions are of interest for LCG after the feedback gathered from the experiments. They should be therefore tracked in the EMT. This list doesn't include emergency releases that may be needed if a critical issue is found, only the planned releases. Emergency releases will be added in this list if they occur.

If WLCG is aware of any outstanding issue, we need the corresponding GGUS ticket to follow it up with the developers. Otherwise, releases will contain what the developers have planned.

First feedback from LHC experiments

LHC experiments have been asked to give feedback about:

  • short/medium term priorities for gLite services important to the experiment.
  • gLite services for which bug fixes are expected.
  • For those gLite services for which no new releases are expected, whether new releases prepared by the developers are welcome.

It's very important that problems are described in GGUS or Savannah so that they can be tracked

Experiment gLite service Requirement Tracked in
ALICE CREAM ALICE wants to be up to date with newer versions. PATCH:4119 CREAM 1.6.1. Fixing critical BUG:67302 in util_java
PATCH:4051 CREAM 1.7
gLexec ALICE will start to use it very soon. Bugs and problems may come by then. N/A
VOBOX None. Production version is valid. No big changes forseen. N/A
WMS None. Used only at CERN and it's OK for Alice. N/A
ATLAS CREAM They expect to start using it more towards the end of the summer. N/A
DPM/LFC Features and bug fixes related to checksum, robustness and stability always welcome. N/A
Information providers don't publish the correct information (i.e. reported used space). Problem not yet understood. Discussion by mail. ATLAS will open GGUS ticket that will be assigned to BDII product team to investigate.
Glue 2.0 very useful since it provides with a better representation of storage. DM has already planned to include this in a future release but it hasn't been decided in which one yet.
FTS Future versions of FTS already include features requested by ATLAS. PATCH:4065. FTS 2.2.5
lcg_util/GFAL ATLAS has mentioned a couple of problems. ATLAS should confirm whether there are open tickets for these problems so they can be tracked.
VOMS clients Some testing is going to be started. Not clear whether it's voms-admin or voms. Some problems may come up afterwards. N/A
CMS ARGUS CMS is behind schedule with the testing of glexec with pilots. More feedback will come. N/A
CREAM No issues with the current version so far. CMS would like to use it in production as soon as PATCH:3621 is deployed for the WMS. Submissions via Condor-G need also to be evaluated before it can be fully used for production activities N/A
FTS FTS 2.2.4 already includes the most urgent features requested by CMS PATCH:4065 FTS 2.2.4
SCAS CMS is behind schedule with the testing of glexec with pilots. More feedback will come. N/A
WMS UI Formatted output of queries to LB via CLI BUG:68053

New feature: dedicated WNs to run one single VO jobs at a time. New request. To be discussed in LCG MB.

Release plan within gLite

The following information is based on the EGEE JRA1 workplan. This will have to be reviewed with the developers since now that EGEE is over and EMI has started, the new roadmaps for each service have to be defined. It's in any case a good starting point for short term releases since some of the plans are still valid.

gLite service Release Task in EGEE-JRA1 workplan Description in the task Patch Major/Critical bugs that should be included Status
CREAM 1.6 TASK:9734 1) Bug fixes
2) Proper management of error codes and error messages
