Week of 140512

WLCG Operations Call details

  • At CERN the meeting room is 513 R-068.

  • For remote participation we use the Alcatel system. At 15.00 CE(S)T on Monday and Thursday (by default) do one of the following:
    1. Dial +41227676000 (just 76000 from a CERN office) and enter access code 0119168, or
    2. To have the system call you, click here

  • In case of problems with Alcatel, we will use Vidyo as backup. Instructions can be found here. The SCOD will email the WLCG operations list in case the Vidyo backup should be used.

General Information

Experiments round table:

  • CMS reports (raw view) -
    • Everything remains pretty quiet! Usual processing continues.
    • I took the time to go through some GGUS tickets. I got some stale tickets to VO support closed out. We are now seeing more tickets in GGUS rather than Savannah as some of our operations teams have started to migrate. But there are no active urgent problems for T1's.

  • ALICE -
    • NTR

  • LHCb reports (raw view) -
    • MCsimulation, Swimming, and User jobs.
