1. Progress on Milestones Deliverables

  • No M&D active
  • Collecting input for QR14

2. Critical Issues

  • Cloud resources monitoring: the current SAM central instance cannot monitor Fed Cloud resources for the following reasons:
    • OCCI interface for OpenStack requires RFC compliant proxy (doesn't support legacy proxy)
    • Now SAM uses a legacy proxy to monitor the other type of EGI resources. We don't know if all kind of EGI resources already support RFC proxy
    • SAM uses a unique proxy to execute all tests. A SW mechanism to choose a proxy in function of a specific test doesn't exist inside the framework.

Then we have to use a separate SAM instance to monitor Cloud resources. We have 2 possible ways for having a unique SAM instance: (1) Campaign to verify the RFC proxy compatibility for all kind of resources monitored by EGI (2) Update SAM allowing the usage of more than 1 proxy in parallel (multi-proxies support.
We should assess both activities to understand the effort needed.

3. Major work done during the past week by task

3.1 TJRA1.1

  • Tools roadmap review: a unique document, containing an overall picture of the ops tools roadmap, is now available in the document server - (the link has been added in the JRA1 wiki page). Actions/requirements blocked for some reason (dependent from another task, waiting for info from or NGIs, lacking of resources, etc.) are highlighted in red. The document will be updated monthly to have an always fresh picture of the ops tools evolution.
