2008-02-11 edit
Main.OCC(John) 2008-02-04 What to do about FNAL & SAM timeouts?

*Update Jan 31th* : Piotr (Mr SAM) confirmed that site-specific timeouts are not an option. Also, modifying timeouts just for the DPM tests would take a while, and would require agreement from all VOs & ROCs (it would potentially increase the time to detect real DPM problems). One could argue that if the SRM tests are timing out after ten minutes, the SRM is probably not of much use to users at that time either. Therefore, tweaking SAM to mask the problem is not a good solution. Nevertheless, he suggested that FNAL investigate a local workaround, such as increasing the priority of ops monitoring jobs. Joe was notified of this, & we await his feedback.

*Update Feb 18th* More hardware was thrown at the problem and the situation is
resolved. (go to action)

2008-02-25 edit
Main.OCC(Nick) 2008-02-04 How to handle BDII/GOCDB mismatches, and the issue of introducing new sites?

*Update Feb 18th*: Will add a link to minutes of ROC managers meeting.

*Update Feb 25th*:
This is the link: https://edms.cern.ch/file/893655/1/ROC-mgrs-05-02-2008(ARM-11).htm
The conclusion was: Nick to ask the relevant development teams for an estimate of the effort required to implement the automatic removal of entries from the top-level BDII.

*Update Mar 3rd*

Main.all, Main.ROCs 2008-03-15 Request to Atlas sites to upgrade WNs to SL4

*15th Feb:* broadcast sent

*Update Feb 18th*: Request atlas sites to upgrade WN. Broadcast sent , leave open for a bit, deadline was the 15th March. Review 2 weeks before this.

*Update Mar 3rd* Steve to produce data of queues by OS.

*Update Mar 10th* From Steve:

*Update Mar 12th* Steve to create a finer report preferable by ROC, ... ( if only that were possible. Maybe via SAM DB)

*Update Mar 19th* Reminder to all sites, time is running out...

*Update Mar 31st* From ATLAS (Alessandro): we have developped a SAM test to see which version of lcg-utils has been installed on the WN of the ATLAS supporting sites. The results can be seen in the sam web page, selecting ATLAS VO, CE, CE-sft-lcg-version. The sites that give ERROR in this test didn't upgrade to the SRM2 compatible version of lcg-utils.
Hope this could help in following the action of having, in all the ATLAS supporting sites, the WN upgraded to SRM2

*Update Apr 21st* A GGUS ticket should be opened against all ROCs to follow-up this issue with sites. Nick knows how to clone a ticket...

*Update May 5th* As soon as ATLAS can confirmed that they've opened a GGUS ticket (cloned for all ROCs), we can close this item.

*Update May 19th* This action can be closed (go to action)

EgeeOCCGroup 2008-03-31 Broadcast that gLite 3.0 lcg-RB should henceforth be considered obsolete and unmaintained. It is replaced by WMS (preferably on SL4). Include link to user documentation in the broadcast.

*Update: 3/3/08*
Announcement should be made at the time of the release of the WMS/LB on SL4 (TBD), saying support will be dropped for the lcg-RB in 2(?) months.

*Update 12 March 2008:* No change.

*Update 31 Mar:* The RB will be obsoleted once the SL4 version of the WMS is available.

*Update 17th Apr:* Will be released in two months, closing. (go to action)

Main.SAM, Main.team 2008-05-27 Need to consider what SAM, alarm system and CIC portal should do mitigate against a high load CE.

*Update March 12th*
Had discussion with Ulrich and also submitted a new test for sam, it needs some
thought as to if it is a good idea but it would be a non-critical test on the
"GlueCEStateStatus: Production" attribute that the then critical CE tests would depend on.
The same logic as the existing SE free space tests.

*Update 31 March:* Request for new SAM sensor passed to SAM team.

*update 21 April:* On SAM work-list (Savannah). John thought that the item could be closed as far as the ROC managers are concerned, but Kostas was worried that the issue risked being forgotten. He suggested the possibility of a pending state for items that get transferred to other tracking mechanisms. Nick will think about it.

*Update 5th of May* Now on the SAM worklist. Nothing changed for now, ignore for 3 weeks.

*Update 2nd of June* No progress recorded.

*Update 11th June* This is present as BUG:34443 anyway so close here. (go to action)

Those with old WMS (SL3 in fact)

EENet (Estonia)
ITEP (Russia)
RTUETF ( Latvia)

Those with new WMS (SL4 in fact)

SteveTraylen 2008-05-26 The T0 FTS server has configured 0 retries by default, while T1s have 3 retries by default. This complicates Atlas workflow, if a transfer fails, we try to find another source with the same file. Could we have 0 retries in all FTS servers at T1s (this affects all channels, all VOs)? What is the position of the other LHC VOs?
- Not a problem for LHCb
- Ron (SARA): I thought this could be set up per channel, per VO agent. To be checked with Gaving & co

* Answer from Gavin:

The ‘retry’ count is a VO policy, so needs to be set in the relevant VO agent config for the FTS server (the default is 3 retries separated by minimum 10 minutes).

I know CMS’ Phedex prefer to fail-fast (and see the error as early as possible), so have asked T1 sites to set the retry to 0. Phedex then retries externally (i.e. with another FTS jobs for the failed files).

LHCb and ALICE I think are still set to the default.

See: https://twiki.cern.ch/twiki/bin/view/LCG/FtsYaimValues20

Contact fts-support@cernNOSPAMPLEASE.ch is case of problems.

*Update June 11th* Steve should submit tickets to all FTS sites.

*Update June 13th* GGUS:37415 submitted and child tickets sent to ROCs of each Tier1.
Review in two weeks time.

*Update June 20th* GGUS:37415 has been responded to by all FTS instances that
the changes have been made.... Except for:

For USCMS-FNAL-WC1 in GGUS:37428
For BNL-LCG2 in GGUS:37427

Both will be contacted again this week.
* Update June 30th* Steve will escalate, two U.S. sites are problematic.

* Update July 7th* BNL and Fermi have now responded that they made the
configuration change. Action item to be closed after next meeting. Steve (go to action)

SteveTraylen 2009-02-02 Check VO-card setting for WN local disk space requirements for all HEP VOs.

Reviewed 3rd February, Alice = 10 GB, Atlas = 15 GB, CMS = 10GB, LHCb = 2 GB.

All LHC VOs specify values for WN disk space. Close this action, if you see particular
VOs exceeding this then submit GGUS tickets for the VO.

Main.LHCb 2008-03-17 LHCb and Kostas to contact one another about middleware version tickets within SouthEast region.

** solved:
LHCb runs a custom SAM test that checks the version of lcg_utils and spots out sites with obsolete version installed.

The person in LHCb following these tickets submitted twice 24 tickets for 24 different sites because his first attempt (using mail ticketing system of GGUS) failed to return the GGUS reference. For your information this problem was due to a missed mapping of the submitters mail address (used by GGUS for submissions of tickets via mail) and his certificate. (go to action)

NicholasThackray, AntonioRetico 2008-06-06 Check with CMS VO Cards about WMS and Pool account support.

Update 28-May-08: CMS confirms that the use of pool accounts for SGM has proved to be not working in many cases. The main problem is that the acls on the files are set by users and, if different accounts are used, one software manager could act (e.g. uninstall) packages installed by another.

On the other hand this is not relevant for WMS, where the distinction of pools per VO is not needed.

The conclusion is that the recommended configuration of the accounts has indeed to be different between CEs and WMS, at least as far as CMS is concerned.
As far as I am concerned this action can be closed.

SteveTraylen 2008-06-06 Check if CRL lifetimes are monitored anywhere?

*Update 2nd June*
From Romain: There is a SAM test called "CE-wn-sec-crl". General results are public, but detailed results are available only to the ROC security contacts + SAM team.

Follow up question for Romain. CE-wn-sec-crl monitors CRL status on the WNs them self.
What was being asked for was central monitoring of the CA's CRL URLs.... It would make
for an easy rrd plot.

*Update 9th June*
There is central monitoring of CRLs here http://nagios.eugridpma.org/.
Also I have requested that the WLCG Monitoring Group considers getting these
to sites via its alarm/nagios/messaging framework. BUG:37632.

*Update 11th June* Ask the CODS to look at the nagios alarms for CRLs twice
a week. (go to action)

2008-06-26 edit
SteveTraylen, EgeeSiteRepsGroup 2008-06-06 Look into why LHCb's files in /tmp are being deleted.

The reason is that python's tarfile unpacks files with a --preserve-atime so the
files are old as far as tmpwatch is concerned. A way forward is being discussed.

Main.ROC_France 2008-06-09 follow-up the following issue reported by ROC France: With our UIs we got some problems with Python for several VOs because those VOs use their own Python version (> 2.3.x). Unfortunately, UI installation provides standard python2.3 libraries within the externals directory, and set the PYTHONPATH accordingly. By the way, to be able to use their own python installation, VOs must convenably update the PYTHONPATH variable to ensure that the right version of the required libraries are firstly taken into account. Make sure also that you call the right python binary

*Update 11th June* Nick will look into this.

*Update 21st June* Waiting for Nick

*Update 28th July* Response from SA3 - _The tarball is produced to work with SL4, so python 2.3 has to be the default. To fully support python 2.5 (for example), you need to distribute the interpreter, reconfigure the environment and, ideally, have all your language extensions recompiled against the new python API. We are looking into how to do the last part, but the first two things are up to the site or VO.

Update 11th August this was raised by a VO in France, is the answer given by SA3 OK? how do we move from here? Helene will pass the feedback to the relevant people
Update 1st Septemberthe action can be closed; finally the real solution was in a savannah bug and it was a problem with the YAIM environment (go to action)

July 7th, there is now a massive thread which does contain the answer. The answer must
be extracted and documented next.

July16th. I've now written How_to_publish_queues_with_access_restricted_to_a_FQAN but it is unclear

Main.OCC 2008-08-25 Find the probable release date of the CREAM CE.

Update 25th August: This will be released in the next update to gLite 3.1 - within 1-2 weeks.
1st September After teh update at today's meeting, this action can be closed: the EMT made the decision to delay the deployment of the CREAM CE (the certified patch). This is because not-ICE-enabled WMS could accidentally match the Cream CE and cause a submission failure. Waiting for the ICE-WMS to be deployed, as a workaround, Cream will be released with a GlueServiceStatus?? = ‘Production’, to be changed again later. One issue is represented by the old version of WMS on SL3 (unsupported). As they will not be integrated with ICE, once the Cream CE will be advertised again in real production mode, they would fail to submit. In order to size this issue up we would like to get from the WLCG EGEE Operation Meeting an estimation of the number of old SL3 WMS still in production. (go to action)

Main.OCC 2008-08-18 Make the owners of the CA RPM release process aware of the issues raised by ROC France.

Update August 19th: Maite has some news?

Update 1st September SAM agrees to extend the 7 days period in this specific case: the CA RPMs are not put in the repository in the 1 day scheduled for this. Technically it is feasible and already implemented. See diagram and explanations here:

Shorty, the diagram shows that it is possible to configure:
- time-stamp from which countdown of timeout starts
- delay of warning
- timeout before sites will get CRIT error

Update 10/9/08: Although Nick doesn't understand the text, he said that the ticket can be closed (SAM implemented what was asked). (go to action)

Main.LHCb 2009-11-10 From UK/I but general, why are so many sites failing LHCb SAM tests. Please can LHCb give a summary. Roberto Santin. will check again on 11.11.2008. (go to action) 2008-11-19 edit
JohnShade 2009-11-10 Check there is progress on GGUS:42341

Update: Current monitoring architecture does not allow one service to be on multiple nodes/sites. A new database schema is being worked on (based on service end-points), but the restriction of binding a service to a specific site will probbaly remain. (go to action)

Main.OCC 2009-01-31 OCC to send broadcast to sites requesting to upgrade the GFAL version so it is higher than 1.10.6
More details about the issue can be found here: https://gus.fzk.de/ws/ticket_info.php?ticket=43994

Update 19/1/2009: Biomed GFAL version problem, Maite will send broadcast after the meeting (seems some sites are still on SL3 and need to upgrade the O/S as well as GFAL!)

Update 26/1/2009: no broadcast seen, OCC to follow up.

Update 2/2/2009: broadcast not sent, problem being followed up with sites through GGUS. Agreement to close item. (go to action)

Main.Akos 2009-01-31 The Data Management team (Akos) to provide a version of the LFC without list replica (related to the old GFAL version problem reported by Biomed)

Update 19/1/2009: (mail from Akos):
We have examined the issue and it does not look like a security problem, but a resource limitation: the number of threads in an LFC instance limits the number of clients that can connect concurrently and the Biomed usage patter exceeds that limit.
When the clients would finish their work, LFC would be responsive again.

The same problem would occur with other iterator like operations, like opendir/readdir/closedir.

Removing these operations would cause old clients to fail, however it would not solve the problem, so in my opinion the upgrade of lcg_utils is the right solution.

Unfortunately nobody has contacted us from the Biomed community regarding the possibility and context of a special build, so we did not progress on that side.

Update 26/1/2009: Can be closed. (go to action)

2009-01-27 edit
Main.Biomed 2009-02-28 Long term solution to the old GFAL version problem reported by Biomed: develop VO specific SAM test to detect this, and then exclude the sites with the wrong version

Update 19/1/2009: Long-term solution could be SAM tests, or adding GFAL version collection to job-wrapper scripts. (go to action)

2009-01-27 edit
Main.SAM 2009-01-31 SAM and Atlas (Alessandro) to get together to understand how SAM-Atlas deals with sites with no close SE defined and see if this can be used in SAM-operations

Update: 19/1/2009:
The outcome of the get-together was:

>> Not having SE affects on passing by site RM SAM tests - those tests take closest SE (default).
This is incorrect – the defined SE doesn’t have to be at the site!

>> Also setting up site in such situation is not possible because yaim require SE.
Correct, but again the SE doesn’t have to be local to the site.

>> In case of putting SE in Scheduled downtime, site have to put also CE into downtime (otherwise will not pass RM tests) or chose (lack in procedures) other SE (from other site).

This is correct, and the only real issue. ATLAS doen’t use Replica Management tests, but believe that they should be part of the ops infrastructure tests (which are more extensive). There may be a case for making the replica management tests non-critical, but they’ve been critical for two years now and most people seem happy with this.

The way for a site to change the defined SE is to modify the variable VO_OPS_DEFAULT_SE in the WNs’ site-info.def files. (go to action)

Main.CERN-ROC 2009-01-31 Check of existing cases of sites only hosting core services, without site services. This is to support a new site RedIRIS in SWE ROC

Update 19/1/2009: CERN ROC to check sites with only core services – no progress.

Update 2/2/2009: New SWE site RedIRIS will only host core services (BDII, WMS, etc.)

Problems until now:

1) GIIS performance error due to: GIIS Old Entries Found: 6 - ERROR
- This will make the SAM test gperf fail.

2) No Grid Version published: GridVersion: *NOTE* could not find valid LCG version
- This ist just a warning in GSTAT at this moment

The other tests seem to work only the gperf error is critical.

Update 12th February - Steve will take a look to understand what this is about.

Update 19th February - Steve - Confused , there is no RedIRIS site in gstat? http://gstat.gridops.org/gstat//SouthWesternEurope.html

Update at the meeting - Kai will check.

Update 3rd March The gstat errors are caused by the WMS publishing only static information. The new info provider just release publishes dynamic information
so this will fix itsef. (go to action)

NickThackray 2009-02-09 Ask SA3 for a list of library packages needed for 32 to 64-bit migration.

*Update 12th Feb* - There is no list. There is a list of per VO on the VO Cards, we may try and produce a common list. What next?

*Update at the meeting* - VOs will definitely have to maintain a list of the libraries they need, in their VO ID card.
Item closed. (go to action)

Main.Nick 2009-02-27 Nick to check on CE status with respect to gLite 3.0/3.1 and Condor.

Update at the meeting - Confusion as to what this action was about. Whether Condor is supported on the gLite 3.1 LCG CE. Nick will follow up.

Update 27 Feb 09 - In theory the gLite 3.1 LCG CE should support the Condor batch system. Instructions on how to set it up are here: https://twiki.cern.ch/twiki/bin/view/EGEE/BatchSystems. If a site has problems, please submit a GGUS ticket and CC neissner@picNOSPAMPLEASE.es.

Main.!JohnShade 2009-03-09 When an individual service at a site is marked as "not in production" in the GOCDB, but the site is "in production", SAM continues to test the service. This is not the intended functionality. Check if there is a bug outstanding on this already, and if not, create one.

Update 27/2/09: It turns out that GridView does not synchronize on that particular GOCDB field, so it isn't available to SAM. The recommended workaround is to create a scheduled downtime - tests will still run, but no tickets will be raised. The requested functionality will be in the new Aggregated Topology Provider, and GOCDB will have a production attribute associated with each service.

Update 9/3/09 - closing during meeting (go to action)

AntonioRetico 2009-03-16 Follow-up with EMT the re-prioritisation of PATCH:2784 and possibly increase it to high

UPDATE 20-Mar: I discussed with the EMT Coordinator. There is a long list of services which now have priority both in certification and release preparation. They welcomed the idea of a pilot service to be run at some sites, which by providing real-usage records would help them making the certification faster. I am preparing a request for sites to join this activity to be presented at the next OPS meeting. (go to action)
