TSA2.3 – Metrics and KPIs Definition and Reporting

+ Status and Progress
SA2.3 kick-off meeting was quite loose/unstructured but was satisfactory.

    1. The metrics survey has now been returned by all partners to 
        Gianni and has been summaried by Gianni.
    2. Eamonn contacted members of Cross-grid to obtain access to the project documentation. 
        This has been studied, not a huge amount of extra insight has been added.
    3. Alberto set up SA2.3 list and area leaders list.

+ Issues to Discuss
Currently no issues to discuss, since a large amount of background reading and planning is 
still required. Query to area leaders will help with decision making process on planned metrics. 
We are still weighing up what can be obtained against what is actually useful for pushing quality 
over the next 3 years.

+ Steps Next Week
Action points from SA2.3 meeting and progress so far (in braces):

   1. Look at Sonar in addition to A-QCM (to be done).
   2. Gianni to look at security plugins at CERN (in progress).
   3. Eamonn will look at ISO standards on the web. TCD has free access to all 
     IEEE publications (in progress).
   4. Eamonn will contact area leaders about what metrics they see as being useful 
     to their overall tasks (e-mail reviewed, to be sent).
   5. We need a draft of metrics for a proposal in one weeks time to go into the deliverable 
     due to be completed in two weeks time (in progress).

 - we had a meeting on 14th to discuss the draft with minutes and actions defined at https://twiki.cern.ch/twiki/bin/view/EMI/TSA26
 - According to what discussed in the meeting a mail with feedback requests was sent to JRA1/SA1 and SW area Leaders. All main issues to discuss were mentioned in the mail and a meeting for Thursday (10:30 or 14:30) was proposed. There was a request for postponing the meeting to next week. This will depend on the deadline for the proposal.

+ Issues to Discuss
- Deadline for the quality plan (deliverable DSA2.1) and contribution expected from sa2.6 (will the draft written be included in the quality plan once updated with developers' feedback)? Patrick is asking me to postpone the meeting to next week, could it be done?

+ Steps Next Week
- collect feedback from developers and integrate the draft accordingly

  • D.Dongiovanni asked which are the Mandatory platforms.for which the testbed should be set up. A.AImar replied that initially will be SL5/64 and SLC4/32. But will be defined by SA1 EMT.

  • D.Dongiovanni noted that if the platforms are too many will be difficult to have the testbed resources from the sites. A.Aimar replied that this will be clarified when resources are asked. Sites will not say in advance which resources they put. We need to ask to the partners when we know what is needed by EMI.

  • L.Dini noted that the tools for the testbeds are not part of task 2.4 but of 2.6. D.Dongiovanni agreed. And for automate testing tools will not be ready by M3.
