2.3. Issues and mitigation

Issue Description Mitigation Description
SAM tests seems to be failing for a couple of hours during the first hours of the 1st of each month There is already a GGUS ticket opened to track this issue because it is also affecting to other NGIS, https://ggus.eu/ws/ticket_info.php?ticket=87997 . According to the ticket, the fix was released in EMI3 update at the end of September 2013 and it will be released in EMI2 update at the end of October 2013.
Failover between backup SAM instance and main SAM instance is manual We are investigating in some mechanism to trigger the fail-over automatically
Incident with Top-BDIIs (due to a bug, some top-bdiis were publishing incomplete information, and the failover mechanism was always picking those BDIIs because they were fast to reply) Top-BDIIs with problems were fixed and the recomputation of A/R was requested for the time period: https://ggus.eu/ws/ticket_info.php?ticket=97865
