2. Operational Issues

2.1 Usage of the information system clients

Preamble:The EMI Registry is the common service discovery system designed during this year by EMI, scheduled to be implemented by EMI-2 and adopted by all EMI products by EMI-3. EMI Registry Twiki page.

Consolidation is the EMI task that aims to reduce the maintenance costs of the software, for example by reducing the number of components and duplicates. EMI has not yet planned a consolidation strategy for the information system clients. EMI explicitly asked for feedback about the usage of the current info-sys clients. They would like to harmonize this area, and they want to choose the direction to go based on the EGI and user communities feedback.

The clients are:

The questions could be:

Feel free to provide other comments, question and requirements about the information system clients
E.g. is a common information system client desiderable for NGIs? (Question mainly addressed to NGIs deploying different middleware)

2.2 CERN Top-BDII usage

Request circulated through the NGI Operations Centre Manager list. Many sites in the EGI Infrastructure use the CERN's Top-BDII as backup Top-BDII instance or main (and only) top-BDII configured ad client level. This usage of the CERN's BDII from external sites needs to be agreed with the administrators of the service, and -first of all- it is important to estimate which Resource Centres have configured the host as main or secondary Top-BDII.

It is important that NGIs survey their sites providing the following information:

Please, provide answers by November 21st (with an email to
