2. ACTIVITY REPORT

2.1. Progress Summary

ROC UKI has started the process to split into separate NGIs. NGI_IE is progressing through the stages of setting up a new NGI. NGI_UK will follow, after which ROC UKI will be decommissioned.

Major CASTOR upgrade completed successfully. Continue to provide a very reliable and available grid infrastructure. Transitioned to gLite-APEL. Kept things running without incident over the winter period. Edinburgh installed CREAM, Durham installed glite-APEL.

2.2. Main Achievements

Test site (pre-SR) for DPM. Edinburgh delivered large amounts of computing to the grid (>8M HS06 hours), following a successful cluster upgrade. Durham have improved their networking infrastructure to help site reliability. Major CASTOR upgrade.

2.3. Issues and mitigation

Issues Mitigation
Running sufficiently large number of jobs at Glasgow to start hitting scale limits of CREAM (A good problem to have!) Deployed multiple CREAM instances, for reliability
