2. ACTIVITY REPORT

2.1. Progress Summary

  1. Follow up security issues with IBERIAN sites according to what is reported in the security dashboard.
  2. Follow up the monthly A/R report for IBERIAN sites failing the threshold.
  3. Follow up of the status of IBERIAN sites in GSTAT.
  4. Follow up with sites which were publishing accounting data with unknown UserDNs.
  5. Follow up with sites that had to republish accounting data, and coordinate with the Accounting Repository staff for the republishing of large amounts of data.
  6. Follow up site's UMD upgrade within IBERGRID. NGI GGUS tickets were opened to sites requesting upgrade plans. Tickets were reviewed on a weekly basis.
  7. Follow up all questions from IBERIAN sites regarding the upgrade to UMD (doubts, issues, questions).
  8. Dissimination of the UMD upgrade calendar and of the imposed policies to follow up the implementation of such calendar.
  9. Providing information about Ibergrid NGI documentation, http://ibergrid.lip.pt/
  10. Provide information about Federation of NGI services and central coordination for Portugal and Spain, https://wiki.egi.eu/wiki/Operations_Surveys#Federation_of_NGI_services_and_central_coordination
  11. Coordination for the migration of important regional services (R-Nagios, VOMS, LFC, WMS and Top-BDIIs).


2.2. Main Achievements

  1. GGUS/Ibergrid-RT integration finished: Ibergrid's helpdesk launched into production on January 30th, since all the testing and integration with GGUS have been successfully accomplished.
  2. Moving from EVO to SeeVogh application to organize the Ibergrid Operations meeting. Currently, these meetings are organizing every Monday morning.
  3. A systematic 100% A/R (6 months in a row) for the TopBDII service (after the implementation of the TopBDII HA mechanism).
  4. Major UMD upgrades for services operated by the NGI were successfully carried out with minimum interference in users activity (including R-NAGIOS).
  5. All the Ibergrid sites were following the calendar for UMD migration and all the tickets regarding unsupported gLite middleware were closed.
  6. Solving GGUS ticket: #90450 "NGI_IBERGRID - core services grouping action" - It was created "NGI_IBERGRID_SERVICES" group service on GOCDB, https://goc.egi.eu/portal/index.php?Page_Type=View_Object&object_id=120331&grid_id=0
  7. Solving the issue with Nagios WN probes on Scientific Linux 6 OS. The package "grid-monitoring-probes-org.sam" was updated on the Ibergrid Regional Nagios. It can be found more information on the following link, https://tomtools.cern.ch/jira/browse/SAM-2999. One Ibergrid site was affected by this issue and in consequence, they get the 0% in the A/R reports for September and October.


2.3. Issues and mitigation

Issue Description Mitigation Description
There was an issue related with fetch-crl crond on the Ibergrid Regional Nagios and it was not able to generate a new proxy and submit the Nagios probes during 9 hours on the 31/12/2012. Recomputation of A/R was requested and performed in
