Change, Release and Deployment

This sections are providing detailed agreement in terms of requirements gathering, release and deployment of the tool which extend Instructions for Operations Tools teams


ARGO monitoring engine

ARGO monitoring engine consists of the following central instances:

POEM Profiles

Profiles for RC monitoring

    • Tests for monitoring of all EGI services.
    • The profile for Availability/Reliability computation of EGI Resource Centres (OPS VO), subset of ARGO_MON tests.
    • Subset of ROC tests that are Operations tests, metrics that can generate an alarm on the operations dashboard when failing.

Profile for Cloud RC monitoring

  • The cloud probes are now included in the ARGO_MON* profiles

Profiles for Operations Tools monitoring

    • Tests for monitoring of all Central Operational Tools from, including NGI SAM
    • Subset of OPS_MONITOR tests used for A/R calculation


ARGO tests

The list of metrics with detailed information on the probes is available on Poem:

Operations tests

Tests on Operations Portal are the ones used for raising alarms for ROD and Operations teams. Operations portal does not execute these tests, but receives alarms from NGI/ROC SAM instances. Operations Portal contains list of the probes used for alarms and others are filtered.

The procedure for adding a new probe can be found here PROC06.

The list of tests can be found here - Operations SAM tests.

Availability tests

Set of tests used for calculating availability and reliability of sites and services. The A/R calculation is related to the OLA. As in case of Operations Portal, availability calculation component receives results from NGI/ROC SAM instances.

TSA1.8 proposes a change in avail calculation (which probe results count in it) and the OMB approves.

The list of tests can be found here - Availability SAM tests.
