SA1.5 Accounting

Steady trickle of sites updating to EMI versions and having minor support requests.

Working with Portal on publishing of UserDNs. Many sites reacting to the OMB request to publish UserDNs generated tickets, some just to verify that they are publishing.

Work with NIKHEF and France to start production using SSM.

Meeting with PRACE on accounting

Load problems due a couple of sites republishing very large numbers of jobs. Summarising doesn't always finish in time and backups can't be run.

SA1.7 Support

Software Support

Due to the short notice this is the report for the DMSU part only, we will have to find report gathering process for the whole subtask.

The work followed the original processes so far, we just received the message the TPM-DMSU merge is approved. We will start implementing the agreed changes immediately.

DMSU tickets flow Aug 26 -- Sept 1
assigned 15

The backlog of tickets is rather high, mostly in waiting for reply status, people tend to be slow in the vacation period. No unusual issues to report otherwise.
