EMI 1 Release Candidate Large Scale Pre-deployment Testing

*****draft for discussion********


EMI 1 RC large scale pre-deployment testing is test deployment of RCx onto volunteer sites supervised by EMI.


The aim is to get early feedback on RCx during March-April to improve components and fine-tune EMI procedures.
  • Do we follow EGI rollout procedure ?
  • Do we follow (or create) EMI rollout procedure?
    • Deployment documentation
    • Benchmarks, feedback form
      • Feedback on the release notes and documentation
      • Installation / deployment feedback form (check EGEE PPS twiki)
      • Check installation/ deployment of UNICORE and ARC services
  • This is a new activity within EMI Large Scale Acceptance Testbed


Scenarios to consider:
  • "Early adoption/rollout" - not to be confused with EGI Staged Rollout
  • Absorbed by EMI Large Scale Acceptance Testbed which operates a Demand-Supply approach eg
    • Demand: A request of test describing the testing scenario (resources needed, services involved, number of instances, number of users involved etc.etc.).
    • Supply: A community of partners (NGI, EGI, PRACE, EMI internal partners) available to participate to specific tests campaigns with X effort, Y resources for Z time to test P1, P2, PN product.
  • Create a pre-production infrastructure which will mimic complete full production infrastructure
  • others?

Things to include in the rollout page:
-release notes
-installation test template (check how SA2 handles feedback/testing reports)

The "EMI rollout coordination team" to be created. (Maria, Francesco, Danilo, Cristina, UNICORE rollout expert, Balazs + ARC rollout expert) From Danilo, to check: Axel Berg (Axel@saraNOSPAMPLEASE.nl)


The following sites/institutes have volunteered - mixed set of production and test machines
Site/Institute Details Contact
AS, Taipei   stella.shen@twgridNOSPAMPLEASE.org
CSIC For products they are familiar with STORM, WMS, LFC, combination of LB + CREAM isabel@campos-itNOSPAMPLEASE.es
LIP For LFC and other data man services isabel@campos-itNOSPAMPLEASE.es
DESY NDGF (Tier I) is willing to run EMI-1 dCache before Mid of March.
DESY will follow with 2 of it's 5 dcache instances before mid of the year.
We are talking about production systems.
On early deploying of other EMI componets, I didn't get any feedback yet from our Tier II manager.
GILDA 2 machines emidio.giorgio@ctNOSPAMPLEASE.infn.it
UNICORE in collaboration with PL-GRID For UNICORE + gLite components on 'dedicated small system' first bala@matNOSPAMPLEASE.umk.pl
D4Science-II Will install some services; can provide around 4-5 machine for the tests andrea.manzi@cernNOSPAMPLEASE.ch
HealthGrid Accepts in principle.
How many services will we have to install?
How many days will we have after the RC distribution?
Will there be some benchmarks/ tests to pass on?
As you may know VRCs are being built and HG is the representative of the LSGC, thus I took the liberty to forward your request to the other members of the VRC so, that we can be sure to test all what you need to be tested!
maatG Accepts in principle.
Similar concerns as HG; process to follow.
GISELA Waiting for details on how to proceed ramond@gmailNOSPAMPLEASE.com
