Discussion

  • AI (BrianL): We decided to add epel-testing to our nightlies to catch potential issues with EPEL updates before they're released
  • AI (BrianL): Fix typo in SPF record for osg-sw-submit

Support Update

  • BNL (Derek): Belle II had disabled their Gratia probes but after re-enabling them the historical records were not still picked up. Still investigating.
  • UCSD (Edgar): had been assisting a user with their environment on a local submit host but we think it would be a good idea to have them sign up with OSG Connect.

Discussion

  • We receive feedback from community testing emails infrequently but tend to still have to contact specific people for testing
    • Brian Lin proposed adding the ATLAS and CMS Tier-2 email lists to perhaps get stake holders to encourage admins to do some testing

OSG Investigations

  • Simple validation of xrootd-monitoring-collector passed.
    • Data collected for production validation, now to correlate the 2 sources, collector and remote xrootd server. Difficult step.
  • Working with Brian (and Frank?) on GRACC changes.
  • Update of GRACC ES, which may require some development changes. Hopefully updating this week.
  • DONE NSF science bucket metadata for GRACC development.
    • TODO Need to discuss with the RCF team about field of science updates
    • TODO Add science bucket on a dashboard
  • Helping osg-connect with SciTokens installation across submit hosts (Thanks mat for the RPM)
