Compute and storage resources to be published in the BDII - GLUE2

It is important that the sites publish their resources in the BDII (GLUE2 Schema) for keeping track of the capacity of our infrastructure and how it evolves over the time. The NGIs are asked to follow-up with their sites if the information are properly published:

In particular we need to know:

You can easily find on VAPOR what is the capacity of your NGIs and what are the missing resources:

Decommissioning EMI WMS

WMS servers can be decommissioned. Please follow the procedure PROC12. The plan is:

webdav probes in OPERATORS profile

The webdav probes was included in the ARGO_MON_OPERATORS profile after the approval in the January OMB: in this way the failures will generate an alarm on the dashboard, and the ROD teams can open a ticket to the failing sites. If no particular issue occurs, and if at least 75% of webdav endpoint are passing the tests, the probes will be added in the ARGO_MON_CRITICAL profile, so the results of these probes will be taken into account for the A/R figures.

List of sites that not have completed the configuration yet:

List of sites that disabled webdav: UNIGE-DPNC, GR-01-AUTH, HG-03-AUTH, CETA-GRID, WUT

For registering on GOC-DB the webdav service endpoint, follow the HOWTO21 in order to filling in the proper information. In particular:

Storage accounting deployment

During the September meeting, OMB has approved the full-scale deployment of storage accounting. The APEL team has tested it with a group of early adopters sites, and the results prove that storage accounting is now production-ready.

Storage accounting is currently supported only for the DPM and dCache storage elements therefore only the resource centres deploying these kind of storage elements are requested to publish storage accounting data.

In order to properly install and configure the storage accounting scripts, please follow the instructions reported in the wiki:

IMPORTANT: be sure to have installed the script v1.0.4 (

After setting up a daily cron job and running the accounting software, look for your data in the Accounting Portal: If it does not appear within 24 hours, or there are other errors, please open a GGUS ticket to APEL who will help debug the process.

PROBLEM: several (DPM) sites are using an old version of the script. This leads to records having an EndTime 30 days in the future. The script version to use is v1.0.4 (

The APEL team opened tickets for this issue:

PROBLEM number 2: the APEL repository is receiving an increasing number of storage records that have been encrypted with something that isn’t the APEL certificate, so the records can’t be read them (and so the sender is unknown). If your site isn’t successfully publishing, please comment out the “server_cert” variable in sender.cfg

List of sites already publishing and of tickets opened is reported here. Several sites are not publishing the storage accounting data yet. NGIs please follow-up with the sites the configuration of the script in order to speed-up the process.
