PPS Site Registration Procedure

There are multiple opportunities for EGEE partners to contribute to the pre-production activity in EGEEIII.

The decision for a partner to join the PPS is of concern of the institute (providing hardware and manpower), of the partner's ROC (ultimately responsible for the allocation of resources within EGEE-SA1) and of the pre-production Coordination (responsible for the service).
A site willing to join, before starting the procedure on its own initiative, should try and reach in advance a consensus around such a move by contacting the relevant ROC and/or the PPS coordination.

The opportunity/need for a new partner to join the activity can be expressed at any time either by a ROC or the PPS Coordination. The forum to discuss such issues is the "PPS Report & Issues" section ath the weekly WLCG-OSG-EGEE Operations meeting

Some of the activities done in PPS require the set-up and maintenance of a grid site (PPS site), some others can be performed within a production grid site. The registration procedure is slightly different in the two cases

The PPS site registration procedure:

Phase 1 - Lightweight Registration (applies to all sites)

  1. The site informs the ROC that they would like to take part in the PPS.
  2. The ROC and the site select from the list of PPS pre-defined activities. This has to be done in consideration of factors such the local expertise, the regional needs and the requirements of the pre-production service. In particular, with this step the site may express its availability to be considered, upon demand, for the set up pilot services in a determined area. In the PPS Service Description, for each of these activities, a list of possible tasks with the corresponding estimated effort is given
  3. The ROC and/or site complete the Site Information Request Form
  4. The form is reviewed by the PPS Coordination and possible changes are discussed with the ROCs and the sites.
  5. If it is agreed that the site can join the PPS, the administrators of the site join the SA1 deployment Group in Savannah, a tracker used to record PPS Activity

Phase 2 - Full Registration (applies to PPS sites, publishing in the PPS information system)

  1. Sites registered for activities requiring the set-up and maintenance of a PPS site, published in the PPS information system, have to follow the EGEE Site Registration Procedure. This applies in particular to sites working in the pre-deployment test activity
  2. Regional web pages from some ROCs with specific information can be found on the PPS website
