2.1. Progress Summary

2.1.2. GARR  

2.1.2. INFN  

The migration activity of the resource centers is ongoing. At this moment, it is focused mainly on the deprecation of the gLite3.1 services (lcg-CE, site-BDII, SRM). In order to follow the glite support calendar, we opened tickets to sites to follow the migration from gLite 3.2 to EMI. It is not clear if all Resource centers will be able to migrate their services on time.

Resource centers changes

  • Five Resource centers are suspended (GRISU-COMETA-UNICT-DIIT, GRISU-COMETA-UNIPA, INFN-NAPOLI-CMS, SISSA-Trieste, SNS-PISA).
  • Two Resource centere have been closed (GRISU-CYBERSAR-CAGLIARI, INFN-LNS).
  • One Resource center changed its name (IGI-BOLOGNA, was INFN-CNAF).
  • Two new Resource centers are under certification (CESIC-UNICAL, INAF-TS);

Core Grid services provided by NGI_IT have been upgraded to EMI-1 or EMI-2 (one LFC server is still gLite3.2 and will be upgraded in the next weeks).

IGI report generator tool The IGI report tool web interface has been improved to show statistics about a more exhaustive set of accounting metrics. Moreover, it's now possible to obtain a report of more then one month, by selecting start and end months.

IGI portal IGI Portal ( is now accessible from all users of IDEM federation. We are developing a new plugin for the IGI portal, in order to make easier the data management task to the Grid end user.

New core service: AMGA catalog An AMGA server has been installed and configured. Some tests have been carried out and the server is now available for Italian communities.
