2. ACTIVITY REPORT

2.1. Progress Summary

===2.2. Main Achievements=== Manchester - Achievements and Plans

As part of the WLCG Ops Co-ordination team, Alessandra Forti co-chairs the Multicore Task Force.

Alessandra routinely maintains the monitoring links https://www.gridpp.ac.uk/wiki/Links_Monitoring_pages and opens tickets for the monitoring pages not working as part of her Monitoring Core Tasks.

Alessandra's cooperation with DPM developers continues as part of the ATLAS testbed for development code, and her other DPM work.

Andrew McNab has co-ordinated the deployment of the Vac virtual machine system at Lancaster, Oxford, and Manchester. All three sites are now routinely running ATLAS and LHCb production jobs in virtual machines using Vac.

Andrew has continued to support the KeyDocs documentation monitoring system for GridPP national grid support activity, and his automated system for submitting visit notices for travel in use by GridPP.

The GridPP website with its wealth of documentation is maintained by Andrew in Manchester.

Andrew has continued to develop the new Tier-2 co-ordination role within LHCb, with particular emphasis on commissioning T2-D sites for LHCb with data storage. Andrew has played an active role in the GridPP and WLCG/GDB clouds and virtualisation groups, and the Machine/Job Features Task Force.

Robert Frank has continued to maintain the GridPP/NGS VOMS system after its transition from being a GridPP responsibility again. He is co-ordinating this with VOMS backup installations being set up at other GridPP sites (Oxford and Imperial), and has continued to support existing virtual organisations.
