Review of recent / open SIRs and other open service issues

Conditions data access and related services

Database services

---++ Database services

  • patching status - ALL databases are now running - no major issues found, some minor issues included:
    • OEM agents not reading the DB alert logs properly - bug 10170020
    • Oracle Bug 9184754 found with very specific to ATLAS PANDA workload

  • Experiment reports:
    • ALICE:
      • Nothing to report
    • ATLAS:
      • Applied patch 9184754 on ADCR production DB - bug was only affecting PANDA application and was causing single instance crashes every few days
      • On Friday (4th of Feb) morning ATLAS PVSS replication aborted due to foreign key violation on target database (ATLAS offline) by five transactions. Harming transactions were applied on source database (ATLAS online) before without problems - violating the constraint which should never happen. The problem of constraint inconsistency in PVSS schema is being investigated but the root cause is not known yet. In order to start replication and maintain the replica consistent problematic transactions have been applied without constraint validation.
    • CMS:
      • Nothing to report
    • LHCb:
      • Nothing to report

  • Site reports:
Site Status, recent changes, incidents, ... Planned interventions
BNL * Conditions database successfully upgraded to No issues occurred during this upgrade.
* Former LFC_FTS cluster was reconfigured to be used as a physical standby database:
- Upgrades included OS RHEL5, Cluster/database server, Storage firmware.
-Only initially enabled on one of the production clusters, as a part of the integration of this Data Guard technology within the oracle database operations.
* Enable IPMI on all oracle production clusters.
* To enable Data guard for LFC database.
* Decommission TAGS database service.
CNAF   * 16 Feb - LHCb cluster upgrade to
* 2 Mar (to be confirmed): FTS DB upgrade to + FTS DB purge old data and set up of the periodical cleaning job, that was missing before.
KIT * Jan 26: Upgrade of 3D RACs (ATLAS, LHCb) to None
NDGF Nothing to report None
PIC 8th Feb - we've upgraded FTS database. We're planning to upgrade all other databases before the end of February but we don't have a exact date.
RAL * We have upgraded the 3D, LFC,FTS and castor databases to
* In few days we should receive the new hardware ready for us to install Oracle and start our testing (this is the HW that will be used for data guard CASTOR and FTS/LFC).
SARA Nothing to report No interventions
TRIUMF * Upgraded Oracle 3D RAC to Oracle None
