Plan for rolling out the recommendations of the WLCG Installed Capacity document


  • Approved at last weeks management board.
  • Rollout at end of February.
    • Either the old SpecInt2000 or the HEPSpec2006.
  • Storage.
    • New providers for DPM are in certification.
    • New providers for dCache are being written.
    • New Storm one with v1.4.0.
  • Monitoring
    • gstat & gridmap will be updated, times will be coming.
Is this a big upgrade to do quickly.
It is just an info provider and/or YAIM update with a couple of new parameters.
For the CE it is not a big update particularly.
DPM/Castor providers already deployed at some sites.
