OSG Software Team

  • AI (Carl, with help from Mat): Enable networking in Koji builds
  • Kubernetes Hackathon
    • AI (Mat): put together Hosted CE submitting to the CHTC Slurm cluster
    • AI (Carl): create koji builder pod in production namespace
    • AI (BrianL): deploy ITB central collector


  • The new version of HTCondor-CE 5 should be pulled from testing due to bugs found.
  • AI (Marco): Add check to frontend to make sure the VOMS signing certificate is valid.

Support Update

  • SDSC Expanse (BrianL): Released production tarballs are broken for the OSG case but there is a workaround for Hosted CEs
  • Marian: Public links to Freshdesk tickets don't work for some people; the workaround for them is to use incognito mode. Freshdesk refuses to fix the issue so for now we have to remind people to use incognito mode.
  • Purdue records (Derek, Carl): Gratia probe seemed to be sending records for local usage, not just OSG. Carl will investigate and provide a software fix.
  • LBL (Carl): Continuing to help with Squid registration; some of their Squids are internal and should not be registered.

OSG DevOps

  • OSG Status page: Moving synchronization to Tiger, merged.
  • XRootD accounting information (from Frank):
    • May need help with automating the process of generating these reports. A month only takes a few minutes. Longer periods take much longer.
    • Table of working set, read, and re-read for monthly, quarterly, and year.
  • PATh metrics: Waittime has gone through a few iterations. Pull request ready for review:


  • gracc-status RPM can be dropped from OSG devops repo, but gracc-archive RPM should be kept.
