This is a discussion page on the implementation of the new production status machine. Savannah tasks can be derived from here.

The production status machine is now a bit confusing. What is missing is:

  1. VERY clear documentation.
  2. A real status machine
  3. The current one is valid only for the MC request: some automation would be nice for the non-MC requests.
  4. The current one does some operations (i.e. removing outputs and killing MC jobs) that are far from optimal.

0. Some documentation is missing.

Clear definitions of status:

Final, irreversible states:

  • Archived
  • Cleaned

States reached only after manual operations:

  • Stop


  • Idle. Reached when there are only 'Done' and 'Failed' jobs, and/or when there are no 'Unused' nor 'Assigned' files.

1. A real status machine

Proposal (possibly valid for all transformation types, but replication):


For what regards implementation: there is generic state machine recently implemented for the RSS, that could probably be re-used.
