Site reports

  • Sara
    • 1.9.0-6. Planing to upgrade to chimera end of April or beginning of May. Paul is suggesting to test the procedure by using a backup copy of the pnfs databases.
    • Chimera bug reported
      • 4427 Removed files can't be rewritten immediately. Tigran is investigating.
    • Either Onno or Ron will participate the Aachen workshop on ACL's and Chimera migration.
  • gridKa, KIT :
    • Things are ok. Two open tickets.
      • 4403 Problem with 'Hopping Manager' with 1.9.1-5
      • 4405 Files, not being on tape, are attempted to be fetched from tape.
    • There are issues with a pinned file. Doris will submit a ticket and provide the details.
  • NDGF :
    • (pre) chimera file in chimera with correct size but the file in the pool had a smaller size. The pool had been crashing during uploading that file. So it seems to be the case that the underlying file system hasn't been able to recover the file after the crash. Hard to fix on the dCache level.
  • PIC (via email)
    • no issues
  • BNL (via email)
    • no issues


Skip next week. Next will be Tue April 14.
