OSG Software Team

  • Hosted-CE:
    • Initial script for managing WN software/data from the CE host in the Operation team's hands
    • AI (Mat): Make release of osg-configure
  • Blahp unification (Carl): Changed direction: building standalone instead of external; builds now, want to add a few changes (like reverting to old config file paths). TimT: that works along with Condor's new strategy of not using externals and always using proper builds.
  • AI (Mat): Mat verified /icecube accessible via stashcp, cvmfs; waiting on Benedikt to try it out
  • Madison ITB fixed (was broken due to a pool password misconfiguration)
  • Next doc focus July 25 (1:30-5:30pm CDT)


  • osg-notify script updated to allow skipping DNS check; Diego tested
  • glideinwms 3.5 needs to get promoted to testing

Support Update

  • Need to discuss with CalTech and CMS their desire to set up a new SC origin
  • Bockjoo running into issues with Slurm probe w/ Slurm v19; he made a tweak to the SQL so that it worked for him. Maybe we can merge his change. In the long run, want people to use the HTCondor-CE probe only
  • Waiting for Patrick from SWT2 to test Slurm probe w/ fix for v18
  • Need to fix WI submit host to report GLOW usage
