4. Plans for the next period
APEL SSM will be rolled into production in the following quarter. In order to enable sites to publish accounting data securely to production message broker network gLite-APEL nodes need to be authorized. Component for retrieving list of gLite-APELs DNs from GOCDB will be implemented and deployed on production message brokers.
A new version of Operations Portal containing availabilities/reliabilities reporting system from perspective of VOs will be deployed in production.
