Brief Status of Atlas Production Cache 14.1.0.Y (14.1.0.3 candidate)



Current situation: (23 May 2008 10h37)


Cache 14.1.0.2 is public since 21 May 2008. No date for next cache.

Proposed strategy: (23 May 2008 10h37)

Follow and create bugs in savannah for RTT, FCT and grid validation jobs.


Open Issues (9 June 2008)


ISSUE 080516-1025: Many bugs related with memory allocation problems. There is a high incidence of bugs opened due to crashes after failing to allocate memory. Batch systems usually limit the virtual memory of jobs exceeding 2.2-2.4 GB. This causes malloc() to fail when asking for more memory and then Athena crashes trying to use the returned pointer which is of course invalid. This will always happen, so it would be worth to handle the malloc failures in a way that the error can be easily identified to improve bug reporting.

Bugs from previous releases


BUG#35769: Atlas Tracking. Uncaught error in R14.0.0.1 reconstruction task 21398 (InDetTrackFitter)

  • Bug opened 18 April 2008 by Wouter
  • Same bug in release 14.1.0.2, see bug #37257.
  • Assigned to Tomasso Lari
  • 4 June 2008: Status requested

PROCEDURES TO BE FOLLOWED (14 May 2008, 14:51)

  1. Look at RTT tests called Event,Simu or Reco JobTransforms,open and follow up tickets.

  2. Look at FCT tests daily

  3. Recommended that tags go into AtlasPoint1 first and then in AtlasProduction with the exception of Simulation tags.

  4. Follow up bugs and check daily their status.

  5. On Tuesday before 12am fill the Atlas Software Validation report for Job Transforms.

  6. Ignacio Aracena will advise the acceptance of Trigger tags into Atlas Production since May 14th 2008

  7. In bug reports specify failure rate whenever possible

  8. Expert in Atlfast I - Simon Dean

  9. Expert in Atlfast II - Michael Duehrsenn

  10. Technical changes to FCT must be sent to atlas-project-fullchaintest-technical@cern.ch
