Harvester machines

You can connect with the usual atlpan user
Name HarvesterID Description
aipanda170 cern_cloud Currently the main harvester machine submitting to Unified PQs, GCE, P1. It contains a local MySQL database and schedd.
aipanda171 CERN_aipanda171 Currently this machine submits to other main Grid PQs. In the future will share the load with aipanda170. The goal is to use a shared MySQL DB on demand (CERN IT hosted) and external schedd.

Important paths and files

Filename Description
/var/log/harvester All the harvester logs of the various agents
/usr/etc/panda/panda_harvester.cfg General configuration of subcomponents, DB connection, etc.
/usr/etc/panda/panda_queueconfig.json Queue configuration
/data/atlpan/harvester_common/ Condor sdf templates and other files needed by Harvester
/data/atlpan/harvester_worker_dir/ sdf file submitted to Condor for each job

Restarting Harvester

[root@]# /usr/etc/rc.d/init.d/panda_harvester-uwsgi reload


The most important tables in the DB structure can be found here, although it's under constant evolution. The DB configuration can always be found in the panda-harvester.cfg file, but currently you can connect to them like this:

[aipanda170]# mysql -u harvester -p harvester [aipanda171]# mysql -h dbod-harv.cern.ch -P 5501 -u admin -p HARVESTER

You will need to know the password to connect. Run only queries you understand and where you know what you are doing.

Condor Schedd machines

These are external condor schedd nodes harvester nodes submit through. You can connect with the usual atlpan user

Currently only aipanda024 submit new jobs to CE (aipanda023 under migration of job logs). In the future they will be interchangeable.

Restarting condor

[root@]# systemctl restart condor

Important paths and files

Filename Description
/etc/condor/ Condor configuration, our configuration usually goes under config.d
