Assessment of progress in 2012

Completed Activities and Milestones

  • The APEL Accounting Repository and Portal were kept working reliably throughout 2012. The APEL Accounting Repository was taken out of service in February when the servers were all upgraded to Scientific Linux 5.
  • The new SSM-based APEL Accounting Repository was brought into service in June, 2012 and there are currently two sites (CERN and NIKHEF) which now send Job Records to this repository. There are also four other publishers (OSG/Gratia, INFN/DGAS, NDGF/SGAS and Switzerland/SGAS) which have migrated to sending Summary Records (for 97 sites) to the new APEL Accounting Repository. These records are integrated with the summaries from the old Accounting Repository which are updated daily and retrieved by The Accounting Portal. This has established a stable method for other accounting implementations to interface their different solutions with central accounting.
  • Other sites producing accounting data requested a change to the messaging protocol used in SSM 1.2 and a new accounting protocol was produced in collaboration with these teams which has been implemented as SSM 2.0.
  • The SSM and associated record loading/unloading methods created for publishing CPU accounting records were modified to collect new types of accounting record, including storage and cloud accounting records. Eight resource providers participating in the EGI Federated Cloud Task now publish cloud accounting records using this method. The storage accounting database has been installed and initial testing carried out to receive storage records. A new Application Accounting package is also under development in Hannover and the same method will be used to send/receive application accounting records.
