Top-BDII problem affecting the publication of accounting records

  • on 20th Dec 2020 the top-bdii at CERN stopped working
  • since then, it wasn't possible to publish the accounting data
    • the SSM script couldn't find the Message Brokers queue to send the messages
  • top-bdii fixed on 4th Jan 2021
  • this problem affected all the sites because by default in the APEL SSM config file it is set CERN's top-BDII
  • CERN's top-BDII is going to be retired

CREAM-CE Decommission

  • End of Security Updates and Support: 31st Dec 2020
  • Decommissioning deadline: 31st Jan 2021
  • PROC16 Decommission of unsupported software
  • Decommissioning start date: Oct 1st 2020
  • Nov 1st: probe returns CRITICAL status, alarms created on the ROD dashboard, ROD teams start to create tickets
  • 1st Feb 2021: EGI Ops will start chasing the sites still providing CREAM-CE endpoints
    • By this time service end-points which couldn't be upgraded should be put into downtime by site admin or ROD
  • 1st March 2021: Sites still deploying unsupported service endpoints risk suspension, unless documented technical reasons prevent a Site Admin from updating these endpoints.
  • Tickets opened: 49
  • Please note that at least one CE endpoint should be associated to the APEL service type in order to monitor the publication of the accounting data, as explained here
    • If the CE you are going to remove was also registered as APEL service type, do not forget to move the APEL service type to a different CE endpoint.
