Derek's Operations time will be going down by mid-july. Put onto other projects. I will coordinate with ops for any development that is needed, but things like puppetizing and day to day operations, I will not be involved in.


  • (Ongoing) Getting sites to transition to the new HTCondor collector
  • Discussion of SLA's, availability metrics…
  • Puppetize: Collectors, ~~topology~~, GRACC
  • One of the OASIS nodes moving to new host, need to send announcement.


In Progress:

  • Working on releasing Writeable Stashcache as production
  • Beginning work with Internet2 to place StashCache in connection points.



  • Anvil Cloud downtime: HCC offered hardware to hold us over and they should be up 1 week before the downtime. The exact downtime dates aren't scheduled yet.
  • Derek (AI): separate actual hosts for ITB host (instead of VHosts). Waiting on puppet modules.
  • Marian (AI): replica needs to be rebuilt, email BrianL, Derek, Jeff, TimC, and TimT about SLA and notification
