Site status



Phoenix: No special updates

Defined procedure to drain the T2 Partition on PizDaint in case on needs of the whole machine to run big jobs.


dCache: no special updates after last f2f
scratch: deploying new nodes and extending the SSD cache to all VOs



Current Status:

  • OMD Monitoring warnings: Xrootd-read fixed. SRM-VOPut in a progress.
  • Storage:
    Expect delivery from Dalco storage drives for 1PB of new storage (with ~ 2 months delay).
    Old SGI runs without warranty since Aug.1.
  • Batch:
    WN reinstallation without Software Raid: reduction of crashes.
  • Accounting numbers (from scheduler) from last month


  • Lost the support manpower, the effect is immedialtely visible in the statistics, as I have been mostly tied up with the Tier-0 project, conferences, etc.
    Planning to get back on track in the next few weeks.

  • Accounting numbers (from scheduler) from last month: N/A, but poor


  • Migrated to CentOS7, transparent to ATLAS.
  • We will be able to use an extra ~400 legacy SL6 cores for a few months. Integration is still pending, will not need an extra PanDA queue.


  • Working on the ARC CE re-deployment on the University cluster Baobab
  • Gianfranco will run the ARC CE, liaising with the Baobab staff
  • Accounting numbers (from scheduler) from last month N/A


  • August 2018 is the last month of funded "Operation Manager" for the NGI_CH. Feedback from Christoph who has attended the last EGI council meeting is welcome.
  • NGI-CH Open Tickets review
