FTS Daily Procedure

This procedure should be followed every day to check the general health of the ongoing transfers and try to find problems. It is also the procedure to rescue jobs that the FTS has given up on.

List each of the channels:


For each channel, look for jobs in the Hold state. A job in Hold state will contain files that have been tried unsuccessfully 3 times:

glite-transfer-list -c CERN-RAL Hold


glite-transfer-list -c CERN-RAL Hold | wc -l

to count them.

You should sample some of the jobs amd see what the problems were:

glite-transfer-status --verbose -l fb9080da-1a2e-11da-9a6c-c2709c5b2fc9
