BDII: Av/Re=99,3%
  • Monitoring
High rate of unknown Nagios tests. We also contacted sites MPI-K, UNI-Dresden, UNI-Karlsruhe, UNI-Siegen per email. Reason: May be 
connection problems
The NGI-DE Nagios was also down during our (KIT, FZKA-LCG2) downtime last week. We will recalculate the availability numbers for 
  • Staged rollout/updates
  • Survey
Usage and future maintenance of deployed software
Operations/Platform Deployment Survey
For the surveys we need your feedback untill 20st of March via Email

 - 16/3/12 Last week we had a two days downtime. We updated CREAM, Apel to the EMI release, dCache was updated to version 1.9.12 
and dCache update included the upgrade from SL4 to SL5. Now all seems to be fine now 
 - Problems with EMI release: After the update sometimes the Nagios test fails, with error message "job could not be submitted" or 
something like that. Comment by KIT: We also tested the BDII in EMI in preproduction. It was not described in the documentation 
that you need 3GB RAM.

  • Nagios<-->Dashboard issue
(Nagios send information/notification to the dashboard and the information/notification is not displayed correctly at the dashboard. 
In consequence the tickets hang in the dashboard longer than the problem persists)
