dCache Tier I meeting MONTH DATE, 2013

[part of a series of meetings]

Present, IN2P3(), Sara(), Triumf(), BNL(), NDGF(Jens, Dmytro), PIC(), KIT(), Fermi(), CERN()


(see box on the other side)

Site reports


Update to 5.0.3 didn't work; reverted back to the current version 4.2.23. We will make a new attempt as soon as the problem is solved.

Have had 5.0.x deployed on the pre-production instance for two weeks, but didn't see the problem as nothing was testing GSI-based xrootd.

GSI xrootd is used by ATLAS, but their test load (from ATLAS) does not exercise the gsi xrootd protocol.

REST admin interface

Dmytro is trying to use the REST interface to automate tasks, using ansible.

There are two issues:

it is not possible to learn the current status of a pool (read-only / read-write), modifying a pool returns successful, but the action did not work.

He will open github issues about these problems.


There are a number of features still missing. Where to describe them?

The dcache-view repo's issues would be the best place.

Support tickets for discussion

[Items are added here automagically]


Same time, next week (but without Paul).
