FTS procedures for 2.0

This page describes specific FTS operations procedures for the SLC3 release 2.0 of FTS (FtsRelease20), and for SLC4 release 2.1 of FTS (FtsRelease21).

This page is designed only for CERN-PROD operations.

Standard operating procedures

Installation of new node

To install a new node: FtsServiceProceduresNewNode.

Changing channel type

To change the channel type (between URLCOPY and SRMCOPY) for a given channel: FtsChangeChannelType20.

Building the service.xml cache

To build the services.xml cache file for a FTS server use the glite-sd2cache tool. This is installed automatically by YAIM. The details are given here: FtsServicesXmlGliteSd2Cache. It also explains how to run the tool by hand if this is necessary.

Service maintenance: pausing channels

If any part of the overall transfer service needs to be stopped for maintenance (for example, if an SRM is going down for maintenance), you can pause the relevant FTS channel: FtsProcedureFtsChannelPause20.

Software upgrade or Maintenance of FTS web-service (rolling)

This is the general template procedure to follow for a rolling software upgrade of the FTS web-service: FtsProcedureFtsUpgrade20.

Software upgrade of FTA agent daemons (rolling)

This is the general template procedure to follow for a rolling software upgrade of the FTA agent nodes: FtsProcedureFtaUpgrade20.

Moving the agents to another box: FTA maintenance or manual failover

This is the manual procedure to follow if you need to take one of the agent servers down for maintenance (for software upgrade, see above).

It is also the procedure to follow for manual failover: FtsProcedureMoveIt20.

Changing a site-name in the channel definition table

This is the procedure to be used when a site changes it's (GOC) site name: FtsProcedureSiteNameChange.

Advanced operating procedures

I really want those core files

In some case, such as the famous Globus abort call, the transfer processes die badly. To see the core files: FtsProcedures20IWantTheTheCore.

Useful queries to the Database
