[part of a series of meetings]


Paul, Christian, Patrick, Karsten, Al, Tigran, Gerd, Dmitry


[see box on the right-hand side]


Up to two minutes (uninterrupted) per person where they can answer two questions:

  • What I did last week (since the last meeting),
  • What I plan to do in the next week.

No questions until we get through everyone :)

Paul: Setting up infrastructure for 2.8 branch. Working on presentation.

Christian: Key based login on pcells, created a release 2.0.1. Preparation for Taipeh WS.


Patrick: DESY is still evaluation dOwnCloud. It is too urgent to offer a pure dCache. For now we are using OwnCloud? as a frontend for sharing and syncing. Lot of other things.

Al: Fixed a regression in webadmin and worked on the bring online. The question now is, how to pass information into this so the masking works correctly. It may require some API changes. ReplicaManager. Moving over to Sping JDBC.

Tigran: Completely busy with OwnCloud?. Target is to have real users to own files instead of owncloud. Found a performance problem in dcap.

Gerd: Very busy upgrading to 2.8 at NDGF. It is working now after fixing the EPSV issue.

Dmitry: DataPreservation?: Setting up a dCache instance for this. Debugged transatlantic transfers. There were some performance issues that could be addresses using PoolManager tweaks. Discussed ReplicaManager and bringonline with Al. There is still some work going on. Tried to get IN2P3 to work.

Plans for patch-releases

Should we make a new patch release?

We are planning to do a round of releases next Tuesday (2.2., 2.6., 2.7, 2.8)

Will discuss next Golden Release next week.

Workshop Preparation

Input on topics

Please answer the doodle poll from Christian, so we can schedule a meeting to collect needed topics.

Trunk activity

Progress with new features...


It looks like the spec of EPSV needs extension to support redirection like PASV did. We will put together a list of things we need and then include CERN in the process to get this in the spec.

Paul: Would it make sense to talk to the RFC people to convince them that the MUST concerning clients to use EPSV should rather be SHOULD or MAY.

Gerd: Wouldn't it be better to get the GridFTP2 people to create an extension that solves the issue.

Tigran: We should be able to present a server/client combination with the changes that works to push them into the RFC.

Issues from [FIXME: Add link to yesterday's Tier-1 meeting]

Xavier attendet. Things are looking fine. There are 3 tickets. One seems to be solved. There is one where a pool gets unresponsive. It seems the pool received a lot of set sticky messages that caused slow down. This needs a little more investigation. Third, the "mover ls" seems to be not properly documented. This may be solved by a patch by Gerd.

Issues from EMI

put 2.2.24 and 2.6.17 in AppDB

New or noteworthy

D0 Zero is adopting dCache as their storage. NDGF deployed 2.8
