OSG Software Team

  • 3.4.26
    • AI (Carl, Mat): Tag and build new osg-build
    • AI (Mat): Is XCache 1.0.2 ready?
    • GlideinWMS 3.4.4 and XRootD 4.9.1 expected this week
  • Update your koji configuration with osg-koji setup this week


  • You can use the 'latest' branch from the osg-build GitHub repository if you'd like the latest released version of osg-build
  • Mat has tested stash-cache 1.0.2 but not the origin. We decided that we should not hold the tag and build back for extensive origin testing since there are so many tickets.
  • We don't believe we'll have to rebuild the various XRootD plugins for 4.9.1
  • Carl thinks he has a simple fix for Bockjoo's missing accounting records and will coordinate with Derek for applying it. We discussed that we should test this on a few records first before running it over the entirety of the folder
  • Carl contacted slurm-users about the supported Slurm versions but only got a sales pitch. Derek will get us the version that UNL uses and we will likely use the version that we test in the nightlies as a baseline.

Support Update

  • JLab (Edgar): Gratia probe was misconfigured so we haven't been getting records for a few months. Gratia was failing immediately so there's a good chance that the history files are still there and that we can fix the configuration and get all of the missing records.
  • StashCache (Edgar): the European StashCache is being overly utilized, users in Europe are being routed to NYC back to Amsterdam. Edgar will coordinate with Geant to try and get this fixed.
  • UFL (Carl, Derek): Missing January accounting records due to a Slurm update that broke our database queries. Bockjoo has a workaround that has temporarily solved this issue but we'd like to solve this more sustainably (SOFTWARE-1588).

OSG Investigations Team

  • New Perfsonar collectors.. almost done! Waiting 24 hours for green light to switch over to production!
  • Creating small script to create check_mk availability spreadsheet for OSG Ops. Now in development.
  • New SciTokens setup at osg-connect. Will be following up with the osg-connect ops and user support teams. Will need to coordinate with both. Created a project plan, but hit snag on the first step. The new glideins don't work, everything else is on hold.
