DAST shift report from the DAST shifter


Date Update
8/11/2015 The past week had a quite low number of queries. A problem with empty directories left in the gangadir preventing Ganga from starting. Solution is to search for them and delete them. find ~/gangadir/repository/${USER}/LocalXML/6.0/jobs/* -empty -type d -delete The location might need to be adjusted if the user has moved their gangadir to a different location by editing their .gangarc. A problem with a job with subjobs not submitting correctly. There is in 6.1.13 still an issue with some jobs failing to submit if the submission is only done after a quit and restart of Ganga. Solution is to create job and submit in same session. A problem with a grid certificate. After the problem did not fix itself 24 hours after the user updated their certificate, I contacted Joel Closier and he fixed something. Problem often arise when a user gets a new certificate (like switch from a University one to a CERN one).
10/02/2015 Ganga 6.1.9 was released on Friday, This release identifies as 'Ganga-SVN' due to a mistake in the release of the latest version
10/02/2015 Several sites were in downtime over the past week, this causes problems on the mailing list. A fix has been mentioned several times on the list and in the email report to the lhcb-dast list
09/04/2015 CNAF will remain down through the weekend. Ganga 6.1.8 is out, with no issues yet, but probably not many users yet either. There are a couple of open threads ( here, and here ) which are pending followup by the users who started the threads.
08/21/2015 There has been a problem for users to read rdst files that depend on the raw ancestor files. The depth flag in the LHCbDataset object was not propagated to the Dirac jobs. The v601r6 release will fix this. The current v601r4 release has a few problems in terms of occasional problems in making a copy of a job and a problem with that the splitting algorithm only works once (quick Ganga and re-enter to fix).
07/27/2015 Release of Ganga 6.1.x to the LHCb users by default from SetupProject, some initial teething problems but deployment went quite well. Ganga: problem copying job objects discovered.
