  • Pilot mapping and home directory setup for dedicated analysis pilot users (in progress)

Secondary CE for load balancing

  • Setup/configure additional hardware and open access through external routers (done)
  • Configure lcgsge jobmanager for ECDF access (done)
  • Job manager validation tests - internal (done) - external (in progress)
  • Pilot / ganga job submission (done)
  • Verify correct information publishing / verify all services and configuration (in progress)
  • Monitor service balancing


  • Install all required ATLAS releases (done)

  • Allocate additional storage to spacetokens ATLASMCDISK/ DATADISK set up SCRATCHDISK (done)
  • Subscribe MC to ECDF site (done)
  • Reorder data on pool node disks to balance resources. (done)

High Perfomance (StoRM/GPFS):

Analysis Load Testing

  • Submit Athena analysis jobs to site via ganga (done)
  • Diagnose and repair any initial misconfiguration (done)
  • Hammercloud test 1 (WMS only) (done)
  • Identify principle bottlenecks from first Hammercloud iteration (done)
  • Complete test 1 evaluation task list
