  • DCC wiki updates (2 new entries)
  • collecting DCC contacts for the DCC mailing list
  • webex booking for DG VT

AppDB (10/12/2013)

  1. We are continuing the work towards the restructuring of the authentication mechanism of the AppDB service, in order to support multiple ways (egisso, x509 - for start) of login and be recognized as the same person (with the same privileges no matter the AuthN mechanism he/she used for login).
under this scope the user will be able to:
  • login using both his egisso (if any) and/or personal x509 certificate.
  • the above statement implies that multiple account types could be associated with a single AppDB person profile. That said, explicit functionality will be availabe for 'connetcting' his profile with more that one of the supported AuthZ methods. For example, one could login with an egisso, go to his personal preferences dialog and connect his x509 as an alternative way of login. This is true also on the oposite direction, login with x509 and connect your egisso.
  • for start, only egisso and x509 will be supported. But the implementation we are following will allow us to add more in the future (i.e. edugain, social, fb, linkedin, g+, etc).

     2. Integration with the operations portal regarding the VO roles (VO manager, VO software admin, etc) is in place. In this way we could extract the info on who has permissions to compile/edit VO-wide image list.

     3. Integration with the operations portal regarding the VO membership is on going (waiting feedback from ops portal people). In this way we could implement image/imagelist privacy between VO members.

     4. Integration with the GOCDB is ongoing. Having that, the user will be able to restrict access/subscription to an image list only by specific Resource Provider(s)


Fetching the data from the GOCDB we realized that although some of the sites are in production they have not fill their DN yet. Is this correct?
     (we need this info for fully satisfy the 4th item above)


  • refactoring tutorials section on ER-flow website



SA4 (in progress)


TSA4.1 - Management


- Created walkthrough guide for the first three weeks: this should get new participants up and running with the VM and grid certificates. - Created recordings & quiz for week 4, this week includes the Hadoop lecture - Polishing lectures of week 5

TSA4.3 - Liferay

bi-weekly reporting

TSA4.4 - OCCI for CMF

rOCCI framework
  • updated rOCCI-api to work with the new rOCCI-core (currently in beta.5)
  • about 40 % of rOCCI-cli has already been adapted and partially rewritten to accommodate new functionality (currently in beta.3)
  • added support for creating VMs to the OpenNebula backend
  • continuously adding docs and unit tests for implemented features
ToDo for next week
  • finish up the port of the OpenNebula backend
  • implement dynamic linking features (storagelinks & networkinterfaces for running VMs)
  • in parallel, continue working on the rOCCI framework
  • None (yet :-))
  • Still approx. one month (= Florian's contribution), no further delay

TSA4.5 - CDMI in CMF

bi-weekly reporting

TSA4.6 - OCCI CompClouds

TSA4.7 - AppDeployment


- frontend development and testing it with local phenomenology users - continue testing contextualization for verification

Plans for next week:

- development of fronted - continue testing with local users

TSA4.8 - CloudCapabilities

bi-weekly reporting


  • All along this period an important work has consisted in the setting up of a production-ready set of VAPOR services, that includes: fine tune logs configuration, configuration of log rotates, firewall configuration, set up of a backup procedure of the VAPOR VM
  • Bug fixing on the scan of full storage elements (sort files of expired/suspended users)
  • Investigation and fixing of a problem of high CPU consumption of the JobMonitorng tool
  • 2 days face-to-face meeting with Operations Portal team (2 and 3 of December), integration of VAPOR with the Operations Portal at the CC IN2P3 (Lyon, France)
    • Decision made on where the VAPOR data production services should be hosted, i.e. at I3S or at CC IN2P3
    • Installation of the VAPOR webapp on the web server of the CC IN2P3 and link from the Operations Portal. Now accessible for VO biomed only from:
    • Address web design and graphical homogeneity issues
    • Start migration to Lavoisier 2.1 data integration service (used as third party tool within VAPOR)
Plans for next period

Very few should now happen until the end of the month as the main developer will be on leave from Dec. 9th to 31st.
