BDII deployment plan

Site Plan
NL-T1 There are in total more than 5 top-level BDIIs at the NL-T1. In LCG_GFAL_INFOSYS at both SARA and NIKHEF there are three top-level BDIIs configured. At NIKHEF two BDIIs from NIKHEF and one BDII at SARA configured. At SARA there are two SARA BDIIs and one NIKHEF BDII in LCG_GFAL_INFOSYS
US ATLAS-T1 Working with OSG on the deployment of a resilient and performant top-level BDII infrastructure in the US

Experiment Database Service Issues

  • Experiment reports:
    • ALICE:
      • Nothing to report
    • ATLAS:
      • Atlas offline database suffered from 4 instance reboots this week. Instance 4 rebooted on 28.11, 30.11, 02.12 morning around 4AM and instance 3 rebooted on 02.12 around 11:30AM. Initially high load caused by COOL application was suspected as rootcause however there have been corresponding I/O errors and spikes of physical writes observed on 02.12 which points out to disk or hardware related problems. DBAs are currently working on this problem to understand the root cause and provide a fix to the issue as soon as possible.
    • CMS:
      • On Wednesday (1st Dec) morning CMS PVSS streaming aborted once again for 30 minutes while executing modifications (adding new table partitions for 2011) on one of the replicated tables. In fact all changes were already there manually applied by user job. That caused dictionary inconsistency and abort of apply process. Colliding changes have been marked to be skipped and apply process was restarted.
      • On Thursday (2st Dec) CMS PVSS aborted several times due to missing tablespace on offline database - they were not created together with corresponding tablespaces on online database. All related streams errors were solved manually by creating proper tablespaces on the offline database.
    • LHCb:
      • nothing

  • Site reports:
Site Status, recent changes, incidents, ... Planned interventions
ASGC Nothing to report None
BNL Validations for new harware
Working on improvements for Weekly reports
CNAF Nothing to report None
KIT Nothing to report None
IN2P3 Nothing to report None
NDGF Nothing to report None
PIC Nothing to report None
RAL Nothing to report None
SARA Nothing to report Next Tuesday migration to the cluster
TRIUMF Database was not accessible during last weekend due number of session exceeded because resource_limit parameter was set to FALSE profiles were not working None
