To update CRAB,


modify /uscmst1/prod/grid


Notes on updating CRAB for GlideIn

  • Contact Hai Peng for their modifications
  • Update Scheduler*.py
  • update Boss with new variables in JDL
    • Storage Elem
    • SW version
    • architecture

Notes from 2008-01-17 WMS meeting

  • Does glidein factory get the list of sites out of BDII? No.
  • Stalled because BossLite is still coming, not in CRAB yet.
  • Plan: CRAB + BossLite will not initially support CondorG. I will add CondorG and then GlideIn when BossLite stabilizes.
  • Igor will publish SEs, which may obviate the map that Haifeng and Frank were writing
  • Meeting tomorrow between Oli, Igor, and Dave E. to sort the CE/SE mapping out

Notes from 2008-01-16 meeting


  • update on bossLite
    • bossLite integration
    • crab packaging and dependences: rpm
  • support to LSF and schedulers review
  • server backend implementation status
  • plan for server migration to bosslite
    • submission component
    • job and task tracking
    • kill component
  • server release status
  • WMDM workshop
  • AOB


  • Will be in ProdCommon RSN. Still has to be integrated with CondorG and then glide-ins
  • Also still needs to be integrated to EDG and LSF
  • I will do the OSG integration, talk to Daniele S when I need help
  • Depends on SQLite now and pySQLite, so how to package is an issue.

The server is not working with OSG right now, but when BossLite works with OSG, then the server can be made to.

Server with BossLite and not Boss will be ready in about 3 weeks (early Feb.)

Daniele's minutes:

Notes from December 5 meeting



  • User data publication status
    • Already solved the link problem and it works
    • Can't publish directly into Global DBS
    • crab -publication can change what is in cfg file
  • support for python cfg status
    • no news from me
  • test of get-output threaded status
  • next crab server release (plan to switch to boss-lite)
  • draft of crab dev. plans
    • Link on Wiki page to a future plan
    • Most urgent: publication, BossLite
    • Glidein should be done with an eye to BossLite. Should talk to Carlos?
  • support for srm v2.2 deploy
    • srm1 not a well defined protocol
    • srm2 is well defined, also added some features
    • policies: retention (probility that it will disappear), latency (tape, disk)
    • srm1 will be with us for at least 6 months
    • switch clients based on users request, add flags for v2
    • allow user to specify policies
    • space tokens are going to be a problem (user reserves space?)

Notes from November meeting

  • Work on allowing .py as input
  • Probably make .py default output in 1.8
  • Fix the traceback for bad .cfg files, point people at FAQ
  • Try link for output data, Frederica will test

For problems with CERN WMS, contact Yvan Calas
