Sara(Ron) : No issues currenlty. Atlas is doing reconstruction jobs at NIKEF. BNL(Iris) : Fine so far. dCache 1.9.0-9. The modification times are not changed on access. Tigran will find out if this is a known problem.


Andrea : How much do we profit from deploying fast pnfs : Different observations. Gerard : Planing to more to 1.9.1. Gerard would like to upgrade some pools to 1.9.1 and staying with a recent 1.9.0. Tigran will find out which 1.9.0 version is ok with 1.9.1 pools. Ron : Discussion on asynchronous SrmLs.
