Top-level BDII configuration file generator tool Quattor installation

This tool depends on 3 services to be configured on the node:

  • httpd
  • cron
  • Sindes

This way the tool only relies on already existing NCM components. Therefore it doesn't need a new NCM component, but only configuration for the ones above.


Only a template with default settins is needed:

Quattorized version of the httpd config file described in BDII Config Generator Tool Service


Since the tool does not have a separate component, "software" template is available for it. This way the Sindes configuration has to be added to the node profile, that will have the service running.

The Sindes script only has to copy the DB connection file described at BDII Config Generator Tool Service to /opt/lcg/bdiiconf-gen/conf.


The cron entries also have to be added to the server's node profile. What we're using in production right now looks as the following:

  "/software/components/cron/entries" = push(
    nlist( "name","bdiiconf-gen-prod-osgsites",
        "frequency","0,10,20,30,40,50 * * * *",
        "command", "/opt/lcg/bdiiconf-gen/cron/ 2>> /opt/lcg/bdiiconf-gen/log/get-osgsites-cron.log"));
  "/software/components/cron/entries" = push(
    nlist( "name","bdiiconf-gen-prod",
        "frequency","3,13,23,33,43,53 * * * *",
        "command", "/opt/lcg/bdiiconf-gen/cron/ 2>> /opt/lcg/bdiiconf-gen/log/bdiiconf-gen-cron.log"));
  "/software/components/cron/entries" = push(
    nlist( "name","bdiiconf-gen-pps-osgsites",
        "frequency","5,15,25,35,45,55 * * * *",
        "command", "/opt/lcg/bdiiconf-gen/cron/ -type=PPS -name=pps 2>>  /opt/lcg/bdiiconf-gen/log/get-osgsites-cron-pps.log" ));
  "/software/components/cron/entries" = push(
    nlist( "name","bdiiconf-gen-pps",
        "frequency","7,17,27,37,47,57 * * * *",
        "command", "/opt/lcg/bdiiconf-gen/cron/ -type=PPS -name=pps 2>> /opt/lcg/bdiiconf-gen/log/bdiiconf-gen-cron-pps.log"));
