OSG Investigations Team

GOC Transition is going to dominate the Investigations Team's time over the next couple of weeks. I want to give general status of the transitions we are participating in. So, I will give a couple of states:

  1. Have not started
  2. In development - Could be provisioning hardware, adapting software, installing software…
  3. Ready for testing - In a state where it can be tested by the consumers
  4. Deployed
Service Status
OIM In Development
OASIS Ready for testing
CVMFS Ready for testing
Software Repo Deployed
OSG Display Deployed
StashCache Redirector Deployed
OSG Collector Ready for testing

Changes:

  • OSG Display: Testing -> Deployed. Switched DNS on 4/26.
  • Software Repo: Will switch DNS on 5/1 (Tuesday). Announcement went out 4/25
  • OASIS: Will make switch on 5/3 (Thursday). Announcement went out 4/27
  • Need to schedule OSG Collector switch (Consumers are internal and AGIS, so do we announce it?)

Ongoing

Discussions

  • Action item (Derek): draft an email for the central collector DNS switch
  • Action item (TimT): draft an email for host/service cert renewal
