Background information is available at: It is expected that the working group will work on two different areas:

  • Software: ensure there is enough traceability on the SE and that our services use standard logging mechanisms (syslog)
  • Operations: provide recommendations aimed at the sites to help them fulfill the logging and traceability policy requirements, in particular on the WN and UI

A more detailed work plan will be provided once the working group is formed.

As far as communication is concerned:

  • The working group will coordinate via a mailing list
  • Remote and possibly face-to-face meetings (e.g. pre-GDB) will also be organised
  • Regular status reports will be provided via the GDB
