1. Task Meetings
|Date (dd/mm/yyyy)||Url Indico Agenda||Title||Outcome|
||Accounting Workshop at EGI TF12||Disemination and discussion on the accounting roadmap, together with news of GridSafe from IGE which will be another accounting system which will publish to APEL.|
2. Main Achievements
Repository: Ran the production repository with no internal problems this quarter. A fix for the EGI broker network identified in the previous quarter was implemented and made available to the clients. NDGF/SGAS, CH/SGAS (UNIBE-LHEP, UNIBE-ID & UNIGE-DPNC sites) and INFN/DGAS moved their production accounting to the new SSM infrastructure. The test repository continues to run all the time to receive tests from other sites. All of the other existing and new accounting services have done some testing using SSM, including IGE/Grid-Safe, CC-IN2P3, and ARC-JURA. Still to do EDGI and MAPPER.
Participated in Inter-NGI Report Virtual Team and the Federated Cloud Task Force. For test cloud accounting database we now have 7 Resource Providers who have successfully sent in cloud accounting records from OpenNebula and Openstack cloud middleware.
Participated in OGF UR WG fortnightly phone conferences.
3. Issues and Mitigation
|Issue Description||Mitigation Description|
|Sites who were not publishing UserDNs have started republishing data for the last year – this requires additional effort to coordinate||Sites should not republish but should just publish from when they switch on UserDN publishing.|
4. Plans for the next period
Migrate IN2P3 to new APEL server. Database schema improvements will be implemented
Cloud – test setup of SSM sending records from STFC to CESGA
Storage – test receiving StAR from dcache/StoRM/DPM <span style="mso-ansi-language:EN-GB" />
