2.1. Progress Summary

2.1.2. GARR  

2.1.2. INFN  

The migration activity of the resource centers is ongoing. At this moment, it is focused mainly on the deprecation of the gLite3.1 services (lcg-CE, site-BDII, SRM), for which all the sites have scheduled an upgrade at most by the end of June.

  • Four Resource centers have been suspended (GRISU-COMETA-UNIPA, GRISU-CYBERSAR-CAGLIARI, SISSA-Trieste, SNS-PISA).
  • One Resource center has been closed (GRISU-CYBERSAR-PORTOCONTE).
  • One new Resource center has been certified and put in production (CRS4).

Core Grid services provided by NGI_IT have been upgraded to EMI-1 (one LFC server is still gLite3.2 and will be upgraded in the next weeks).

The first release of the Italian general purpose portal has been put in production ( It is based on WS-PGRADE and the users authentication is based on INFN AAI (part of IDEM Federation). We plan to put it in production and to open it to IDEM Federation in the next week (test already done).

Monthly report generator tool: a web interface has been developed to obtain a monthly report about the IGI infrastructure usage. For each month, statistics on different metrics are available in order to understand:

  • Resource amount, availability and reliability.
  • Resource usage per VOs, sites, IGI partner institutes.
  • VOMS services usage (related to VOMSes managed by NGI_IT);
  • Statistics on support activity (number of opened and solved ticket per support unit, related to the Italian HelpDesk);

It is possible to choose the month, the kind of statistics to display and to save the report as pdf and csv format.


  • A customized version of HLRmon for accounting of local jobs has been released. Support for DGAS/HLRmon installation for EUMED project and for SAGrid.
  • Work on the OGF UR (Usage Record) Format Reccomendation has started. A preliminary schedule and an updated charter of the UR-WG (UR Working Group) is available at the following address:


  • Organization of the EGI-CSIRT face-to-face meeting at CNAF (Bologna)
  • Reorganization of the EGI-CSIRT public wiki pages and organization of the training sessions at the next Technical Forum 2012
  • Contribution to the D4.4 deliverable "Security Risk Assessment of the EGI Infrastructure", in particular to the threats definition and risk evaluation.
  • Support to the sites for the incident response and vulnerability assessment and fix.
  • IGI-CA
    • Design of the IGI-CA.
    • Preparation of the needed CP/CPS documents and EuGridPMA accreditation and membership requests.
    • Evaluation of the Hardware Security Module for the IGI online CA

STORM Early Adopters: in March we performed the staged rollout for storm 1.8.2-2, in particular we tested the fix for the globus packages problem
