[part of a series of meetings]


Sibel, Vincent, Al, Tigran, Paul, Jürgen, Dmitry


Sibel: Workshop done! :-) Planning for next workshop already started. Will take over webpage development from Asif. Started getting into release work.


  • Lately I worked on having a dCache pre-prod instance @ ndgf which is there now !
  • dcache configuration, e.g., dcache.conf, is now 100% generated from ansible (dcache version, admin acces, db password, etc)
  • pre-prod is registered in ATLAS (NDGF-T1-MWTEST_DATADISK) and validated for listing, upload, fts and deletion by ATLAS load (internal monitoring and external)
  • it has been used to validate Monday's upgrade to 3.2.2

Some issues found in addition in prod. Like with endit plugin: Thanks to Tigran I provided a new release which looked to have fixed the issues -> We have now something which looks interesting and a good basis to complement (apply the ansible role in production, add endit test, etc) and experiment changes before reaching production

  • I'll give a (remote) talk at the next ATLAS software week about Qos in Data management: introduction, thoughts and discussion at DESY
  • Data Management Evolution Discussion session (Thursday at 5pm )
  • local dCache guys (paul, tigran, etc ) are invited
  • I'll circulate the slides once I have a draft

Al: Continued frontend work with Olufemi. Refreshing of cancelled transfers patch has progressed, can be reviewed. Debugging work on Resilience and server/client handshakes.

Tigran: Participated in GDB, presenting last year's work. Discussions about standardization / documentation of xrootd. Discussion with DESY's dCache ops team about an issue with decomissioning Resilient pools. We need to streamline the decomissioning process.

Paul: Work on Scitoken support. XDC demo instance using CDMI
