A longer term project for Carl is to enable mass token requests so Harvester folks can make a token per CE.

Support Update

  • Lancium (BrianL): backfill containers with bind-mounted CVMFS weren't getting jobs because they did not specify shared to the bind mount

OSG DevOps

New: - GRACC update completed; backup service verification to come this week. - Request to inject entire HTCondor job classad into GRACC records. Will require gratia-probe-condor changes. - Stashcp changes to support authenticated reading from /ospool namespace.

Ongoing: - Shoveler is working and lightly tested. Collector is 90% done. - Checksums in xrootd-multiuser is 80% done.

Back burner: - (Stalled, but need to get back to it) 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. - XRootD TCP plugin is ready for packaging. Derek will follow up with software team on who to hand that off to. -
