o more a SRM bug - linkgroups show up which aren't there

o Is it possible to reduce the Time to populate after startup?

  1. It'd be nice to expose some more options from the PoolManager specifically, I used to query the pool manager to see if staging and p2p was turned on.
  2. I also would like to detect which poolgroups allow staging and p2p (as I advertise them as SAs, and would like to know the capabilities of the spaces). To do this, I'd like to be able to do "hsm ls" and see if any HSMs are set up. Could you expose this to some extent (one thought I had was to check and see if the queue sizes for staging are

From Gerd/NDGF

The pool manager maintains more information about a pool than is listed in the info service. Doing psu ls poo in PoolManager, we get something like:

dcsc_ku_dk_037 (enabled=true;active=19;rdOnly=false;links=0;pgroups=1;hsm=[];mode=enabled)

The last two fields are missing. In particular mode is essential for the dCache nagios checker, as this tells us what the status of the pool is from the POV of the pool manager. The enabled and rdOnly flags only provide information about the configuration.

Could you please add this information, as it is important for the checker.


Can we add monitoring of PnfsManager; in particular, the queue lengths.

Is it possible to retrieve this information:

as XML export?
