Any ongoing "Normal" or "Elevated" level issues will be discussed at the weekly Operations and Production meetings.

Service Availability and Outages

The GOC will strive for 90% service availability. If service availability falls below 90% monthly as monitored by the GOC a root cause analysis and service plan will be submitted to the OSG stakeholders for plans to restore an acceptable level of service availability.

Reliability and availability will be determined by 2 critical RSV probes and the OSG availability algorithm. * One probe will verify the Condor collector is queryable whenever the host is pingable (i.e., reasonably not a network failure). * The other probe will verify an automatically generated configuration file has been updated recently

Service Support Hours

This service will be run for 24x7, but support will primarily be within business hours. The exception is for security incidents.

Service Off-Hours Support Procedures

All operational issues should be reported as per Customer Problem Reporting section.

Requests for Service Enhancements

OSG Operations will provide enhancement capabilities only as they are released by the HTCondor project or OSG Technology Group. Requests for customization of the deployed service may be made; OSG Operations has the right of up to one month of testing of any change.

OSG will give 1 week of warning prior to any change in the Collector service version. At any time during this week, Stakeholders are permitted to request a delay for up to 1 week after the originally scheduled upgrade.

OSG Operations will schedule downtimes and configuration changes during normal business hours unless approved by affected stakeholders. This is done so affected stakeholders are always on-hand in case if the downtime and changes cause further issues.

  • The Collector will be run by OSG Operations and accessible to HTCondor compute elements.
