Tier0 Monitoring

CompOpsMeeting plots

The plots shown in the CompOps meeting are queried from Dashboard by a cronjob that is installed in the cmst2 acrontab on lxplus.

# Tier0 CompOpsMeeting plots - cms-tier0-operations@cern.ch
0 0 * * * vocms049 `pwd`/tier0/tier0_resources_plots.sh

This script downloads the plots and leave them in a permanent location that is statically referenced from the meeting twiki. It means, that no changes are required in the Twiki week by week, as long as the plots are produced correctly, the latest plots will be shown always.

If the processing site is updated, this script has to be updated to point to the new one.

Adding a new monitoring page with a readable URL

Note that the last part of the URL in the previous table corresponds to the name of the file in the cmst1 monitoring folder without the extension, for example For https://meter.cern.ch/public/_plugin/kibana/#/dashboard/temp/CMS::*tier0_047* | /afs/cern.ch/cms/monitoring/CMS/*tier0_047*.json

Replays Monitoring Overview

There is a monitoring page per replay instance in the Tier0. Url format is:


Six different plots can be found in this pages:

Using Lemon

Command to check value on lemon server

lemon-cli --metric="13107 13108" --nodes="CMST0-paused-jobs CMST0-wma-backlog CMST0-check-eos CMST0-late-workflows CMST0-long-jobs" --server

Check XML files consistency

xmllint --noout --schema http://itmon.web.cern.ch/itmon/files/xsls_schema.xsd /path/to/your.xml

Check the lemno log (Where the xml are being placed (vocms047))

tail /var/log/lemon-agent.log -f

There are monitoring scripts producing XML files that are finally uploaded to ElasticSearch. Kibana queries them from there to produce the plots.

XML output files

Each script has one or several outputs. The mapping between the output files and the scripts is described in the following table

  • numExpress: Number of Express jobs paused
  • numRepack: Number of Repack jobs paused
  • numPromptReco: Number of PromptReco jobs paused
  • longJobs:
  • longJobsExpress:
  • longJobsRepack:
  • longJobsPromptReco:
  • longJobsLowThreshold:
  • longJobsMidThreshold:
  • longJobsHighThreshold:
  • pausedJobs:
  • pausedJobsExpress:
  • pausedJobsRepack:
  • pausedJobsPromptReco:
