  • Several new EA have committed to staged rollout, a well as some products without EA up to now such as LFC Oracle, FTS, some Globus products also.
  • SW provisioning of UMD2 containing a fraction of EMI2, and preparation for the first UMD2.1 update with several other products, this will include also several IGE products. All products in SL5, SL6 and some in Debian6.
  • SW provisioning of 2 UMD1 updates, and one more in preparation.

Interoperations

Integration of Globus tests into Operations portal is in the phase of assessing outputs from probes by ROD teams. UNICORE tests are put on hold until SAM version Update-17 is released, due to the issue in SAM Update-15. Additional information can be found in the GGUS ticket: https://ggus.eu/ws/ticket_info.php?ticket=81278.

SAM version Update-17 started software release procedure on July 3rd. SAM Update-17 contains new version of ARC and UNICORE probes and Desktop Grids probes. In order to thoroughly test the integration 3 additional EAs participated in staged rollout:

  • NGI_FI - ARC probes
  • NGI_PL - UNICORE probes
  • NGI_HU - Desktop Grids probe.

Integration of UNICORE probes was improved in SAM version Update-19:

  • update probes package
  • probes are configured to use resource information system instead of a central one
  • two new tests are added: emi.unicore.UNICORE-Job and emi.unicore.StorageFactory

QCG/MAPPER probes provided by NGI_PL were fully integrated with SAM in version Update-19. Additional information can be found here: https://tomtools.cern.ch/jira/browse/SAM-2721. Furthermore QCG team submitted a request for support unit in GGUS: http://savannah.cern.ch/support/?130641.
