Go to the OMB page for the lastest agenda.

February 2011

  • ACTION 1. DEADLINE 10 Feb. Submmission of QR3 report and metrics:
    • Please supply NGI reports and metrics for QR3 at here
    • Please supply SA1 task reports and metrics for QR2 at here
  • ACTION 2. DEADLINE 10 Feb. Survey on supported OS platforms, LB, service management and monitoring (for EMI components). We would like to launch the first SA1 survey covering the following capabilities: Logging and Bookkeeping, Service Management and and Auditing and gLite-CLUSTER. All these capabilities are relevant to EGI and feedback - after internal processing - will be provided to the EMI project, so it is very important that you give this survey high priority. For some of the questions, you may need to consult your site managers. Instructions for submission.
  • ACTION 3. DEADLINE 10 Feb.Call for Requiements: EMI 2.0 and Nagios tests. The requirement gathering process for EMI 2.0 (ARC, gLite and UNICORE) needs to start now, as EMI software development will start in May 2011, and all requirements need to be internally gathered and prioritized in the OMB and OTAG (depending on the type of requirement), and then discussed at the Technical Coordination Board of EGI. All requirements are gathered through the RT requirements queue.
  • ACTION 4. DEADLINE 10 Feb. APEL-Pub change of policy At the last OMB in Amsterdam, we discussed the possibility to change the policies of the APEL-Pub probe. APEL-Pub is an OPERATIONS probe, which returns CRITICAL if after 30 days the site is not publishing accounting data. This probe was introduced during EGEE-III to enforce publication of accounting data (at that time a large fraction of sites were not publishing correctly). It is a OPERATIONS test, as it generates an alarm in the Operations Dashboard when it turns to CRITICAL. The Italian NGI requested this policy to be reviewed, to return CRITICAL after 7 calendar days (instead of 30), as lack of publication of accounting records after 7 days is a good symptom that something needs to be fixed in the site, and waiting 30 days makes debugging of the problem more difficult. As at the end of February the R-GMA central databases will be decommissioned, having this change of policy will help the RODs to pro actively support the sites that still have to migrate to the Active MQ client. At the OMB the majority of the NGIs were in favor, and a couple were not. We decided to poll the missing NGIs with this mail. So, if any NGI objects for this change, please reply by Thursday 10. Silence will be interpreted as agreement.


January 2011

  • Action 6.2 Review document Proposal for extensions to availability and reliability calculations and send your comments and feedback to the noc-managers list
  • Action 6.7 To send feedback and any new or missing requirement for EMI 1.0, and to prioritize the existing requirements list (the xls file was set to the noc-managers list on 23 Dec 2010)
  • Action 6.10 To send comments on the usage of a single EGI monitoring VO (OPS). Is the NGi in favour or is this proposal rejected?
  • Action 6.12 to review the current list of non-assigned components and volunteer to the staged rollout of those that are of interest to them (table)
  • To check the draft site certification manual and provide comments input to V. Hansper and Operational-documentation-manuals (at) mailman.egi.eu
