OSG Software Release 3.5.5

Release Date: 2019-11-14 Supported OS Versions: EL7

Summary of Changes

This release contains:

  • Frontier-Squid 4.9-2.1: Fixed security vulnerabilities
  • XRootD 4.11.0: New feature release
  • BLAHP 1.18.45
    • Add SystemCpu accounting when Slurm jobs complete
    • Add support for decimal seconds fields from Slurm
    • Move local submit attributes scripts from spec to sources
    • Pull in various updates to Slurm scripts from HTCondor's BLAHP
      • Add BLAHP options for project name (-A, BatchProject) and runtime limit (-t, BatchRuntime).
        • The BatchProject HTCondor job attribute is a string that's used with the project or allocation option of the batch system's submission interface.
        • The BatchRuntime HTCondor job attribute is an integer that limits the job's wall-clock execution time, expressed in seconds.
      • Detect and handle Slurm jobs in the TIMEOUT state
      • Explicitly specify /bin/bash for shell scripts rather than /bin/sh
      • Minor python bug fixes for comparing variables against None
      • Support multiple Slurm clusters. The batch queue job parameter to the BLAHP now accepts an optional @<CLUSTER NAME> suffix. The job id generated for the BLAHP will include the cluster name to allow subsequent actions to target the specified cluster.
  • scitokens-credmon 0.4.2: Provide configuration files in examples directory
  • scitokens-cpp 0.3.5: Fixed Elliptic-curve public key handling
