2. Main Achievements
Based on the work of the OLA task force in the previous quarter, revised site-NGI OLA document was produced and presented to the OMB. Also a first draft of an NGI-EGI OLA which will be devided in 3 section was produced. The 3 sections will be a) EGI-NGI services b) Core services c) site-NGI services. The new site-NGI OLA was approved in the OMB F2F meeting 24-25 January in Amsterdam.
From the experience obtained so far through the Availability/reliability results publication process, a document with proposal to the operations tools was produced, with suggestions for improvements and additional features that could be included in the tools development roadmap.
EGI League results were circulated for the months October, November, January.
dteam VO has been fully migrated to EGI VOMS servers. CERN dteam VOMS instaces were shut down on January 26.
SEE-GRID CA has setup a new Registration Authority (RA) in University Chaukh Anta DIOP in Senegal and has started the procedure to setup RAs for SixSq (Partner of StratusLab project) in Switzerland and Helwan University in Egypt.
Operational Documentation Tasks:
Most progress has been made with the Site Certification Procedure. Last minute additions have pushed the expected release date to Q4. The GOCWIKI transfer has been moderately productive in that the GOCDB information has been transferred to the EGI wiki. (Swiss effort.) The Best Practices lead has been pro-active, so there has been progress in this area. (Swedish effort.) The discussions with the COO regarding the structure of the WIKI pages for SA1 have been extremely fruitful, and this will allow work to proceed at a more uniform pace. Work contributions (note, that these include meeting attendances): Switzerland: 65 hours Slovakia: 3 hours Spain: 12 hours Italy: 6 hours Belarus: 4 hours Sweden: 88 hours Portugal: 6 hours
3. Issues and Mitigation
|Issue Description||Mitigation Description|
|November Availability League results were wrong for sites in AT_RISK DT||Issue was investigated, new calculation was performed, and new results were published|
|Many sites did not follow up with the broadcasts to update dteam VO configuration||After analyzing CERN VOMS logfiles on regular intervals, NGIs were alerted with the list of sites/hosts that required action|
|Attendance to the Operational Documentation tasks is still quite poor.||Aim to both update minutes more timely and record attendences in WIKI pages|
4. Plans for the next period
Work on the EGI-NGI and Core Services OLA.
Continuous Evaluation of increased Availability/Reliability thresholds to be enforced from May onwards.
Provide feedback to Operations tools developers for the improvements according to the document presented to the OMB in December .
Finalize the setup the RAs for SixSq and Helwan University.
Operational Documentation Tasks:
Complete Site Certification Procedure First set of Training Guides and Dashboard Howtos (for EGI User Forum) First draft of new procedure manuals GOCWIKI transfer structure created, data moving begun Best Practices wiki fully functional, requires input from partners
