2. Main Achievements

Grid Oversight

Followup upgrades of unsupported software

There were quite a large number of sites that were still running EMI-1 software that is no longer supported. Last quarter a campaign was started to make these sites upgrade their services that run this software. This campaign was continued this quarter. COD has requested RODs to issued GGUS tickets to these sites and is following this up.

ROD performance index

For background information on this, have a look at SA1.7-QR6, section RP OLA and ROD metrics. Since October 2011 we have been asking all NGIs above 10 items in the COD dashboard duting one month about the explanation through GGUS, what was the reason of such result and how do you plan to improve the situation. Currently we are continuing to collect and investigate these metrics and also to correlate this with other metrics and see if we can draw some conclusions from them.

Availability followup

See SA1.7-QR6 for more background information. COD has issued GGUS tickets to sites that are below 70% availability for more than three consecutive months that are eligible for suspension.

Unknown Followup

See SA1.7-QR6 and SA1.7-QR6 for more background information. In Q11 we have continued this activity. In addition, we have started discussions with the SAM nagios team to have a nagios probe that will raise alarms on the operations dashboard when the unknown percentage is higher than a certain threshold. These discussions are nearly completed.

Followup NGI Core Services availability

We have issued GGUS tickets to NGIs that do not meet the 99% availability requirement. In februari 2012 we have started up this activity. At first we have only submitted GGUS tickets to NGIs informing the of their low top-level BDII availability. This activity has been continued in this quarter.

ROD teams slot at EGI CF 13

At the EGI CF we have organized a ROD teams session.

Nagios Probe working group

This quarter a nagios probe working group has been setup having the following tasks:

* revise probes before they are integrated into SAM framework
* evaluate probe- and monitoring-related improvements

COD is leading this activity. The WG met 4 times covering issues of ARC and gLite probes.

4. Plans for the next period

Grid Oversight

Review of certification procedures etc

We are busy developing a procedure to incorporate test resources into the EGI infrastructure, review the certification procedures and to identify possible changes to the operational tools. This discussion is now finished and we will make further progress on this.

Further plans

We will continue the activities that we already doing. Further we are going to proceed with carrying out the plan outlined in and startup the plans described in More specific, the next quarter we will stop the followup of the top-BDII and RPI follow-up as a part of these plans.
