OSG Software Team

  • Other
    • AI (Carl, BrianL): Merge Topology and CILogon contact data (SOFTWARE-4734)
    • AI (BrianL): Add Topology endpoint for querying resources tied to VOs


  • HTCondor team planning to merge the BLAHP into the HTCondor source tree and build their packages together; this will eliminate the circular dependency between their packages.

Support Update

  • Token Transition Workshop (BrianL, Mat): many sites needed to adjust their AUTH_SSL_* CE config variables to continue to support IGTF CAs; also needed to update to scitokens-cpp-0.6.2. HTCondor packaging will be updated upstream to require the latter.

OSG DevOps

New: - Transition to IDTOKENs for IGWN, JLab, GLUEX - Shoveler and Collector is tested, and UNL is using it in production now. - Now writing docs on how to run the shoveler.

Ongoing: - Request to inject entire HTCondor job classad into GRACC records. Will require gratia-probe-condor changes.

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. -
