1. Middleware releases and staged rollout

1.1 News from URT

1.2 Staged rollout updates



2 Operational issues

2.1 Updates from DMSU

Nothing to report

2.2 Issues with the gLExec probe on tarball WNs

The new gLExec probe provided by EMI is Perl-based and it requires Perl library Time::HiRes. In case the library is missing on WN, test emi.cream.glexec.WN-gLExec will report:

CRITICAL: (null)

WNs with the metapackage emi-glexec_wn contain the required library and work fine. WNs deployed by using tarball WNs are missing the library and glexec binary.

2.3 Proposed changes in the APEL monitoring probes

2.4 Medium term changes proposed for GFAL utilities

The GFAL lcg-utils product team is proposing to phase out GFAL/lcg_utils in favour of GFAL2/gfal-utils.

GFAL2 is already used by FTS3 for file transfers, the main features of GFAL2 are:

lgc_utils functions that are proposed to be deprecated:

Function lcg_util Status
Add an alias for a given GUID lcg-aa Deprecated
Copy and register a file lcg-cr Deprecated
lcg-la Deprecated
Get the GUID for a given LFN lcg-lg Deprecated
Lists the replicas for a given LFN lcg-lr Deprecated
Remove an alias lcg-ra Deprecated
Copy between Ses using the catalog lcg-rep Deprecated
Register a file in a catalog lcg-rf Deprecated
Unregister a file lcg-uf Deprecated

The proposal is to support lcg_utils in terms of security and critical bug patches until 31st October 2014.

The changes may affect heavily user communities who are using LFC and who based their workflows on the lcg-utils commands that combine SRM and LFC actions.

More information available in the CERN twiki.

Action: Discuss with your NGI team and user communities the implications of this proposed change.
P.Solagna will circulate this information to the UCB.
