Welcome to the wiki page of the Mapper Task Force Phase II (which started in Jan 2012).

Task force coordiantor: M. Krakowian/

For additions, deletions and changes to this page please pass your proposals to/coordinate with Krzysztof Kurowski <>

This EGI Wiki section constitutes the working Wiki through which MAPPER, PRACE and EGI InSPIRE projects will coordinate the activities for Phase 2 of the jointly formed MAPPER-PRACE-EGI Task Force (MTF).


Aims (proposal)

  • to integrate QCG Nagios probes into the SAM release and to assess which of these probes will affect site Availability/Reliability in case of failure (affecting
  • to assess the status of accounting, and the developments needed to integrate what exists with the EGI accounting infrastructure
  • to integrate QCG support activities into the EGI mainstream support tasks (1st level, 2nd level and 3rd level)

Current status of integration

Status Comments


QCG services have their own types in GOCDB

  • QCG.Computing
  • QCG.Notification
  • QCG.Broker


  • QCG.Computing - pl.plgrid.QCG-Computing, hr.srce.QCG-Computing-CertLifetime
  • QCG.Notification - pl.plgrid.QCG-Notification
  • QCG.Broker - pl.plgrid.QCG-Broker,  hr.srce.QCG-Broker-CertLifetime

In EGI OPS Availability and Reliability Profile:

  • pl.plgrid.QCG-Computing
  • hr.srce.QCG-Computing-CertLifetime


QCG services deployed in the PL-Grid infrastructure report usage records to the national accounting system called BAT. The QCG Accounting solution development based on APEL was finally completed in July 2013.


In progress

Support for QCG middleware is provided through the QosCosGrid GGUS support unit with medium level of service support [QoS]. An independent xGUS instance is currently being set up for broader MAPPER support activities.

QCG will be externally supported by two partners:

  • PL-Grid for the 1st-level support
  • PSNC for 2nd and 3rd level support


  • QCG.Broker - pl.plgrid.QCG-Broker, hr.srce.QCG-Broker-CertLifetime
  • QCG.Computing - pl.plgrid.QCG-Computing, hr.srce.QCG-Computing-CertLifetime
  • QCG.Notification - pl.plgrid.QCG-Notification
