2.2. Main Achievements

NGI_PL submitted two proposals for PMB mini-projects call, both related to operations in the area of Resource Allocation (coordinated by Cyfronet) and Service Availability calculation. SAM/nagios system has been reconfigured for new regional service types which has been introduced in GOCDB. All sites are in-line with requirements for software retirement calendar as well as all sites are publishing user DNs.

NGI_PL has proposed one of two schemes for Resource Allocation in EGI within Resource Allocation Task Force. We also declared some resources for Resource Allocation Testbed where RA procedures will be tested.
