OSG Software Team

  • Release
    • AI (Mat, BrianL): XRootD in OSG 3.6 (SOFTWARE-4494)
    • AI (Mat) review xrootd-multiuser and osg-ca-certs-updater promotion requests
    • AI (Carl, BrianL): Create new gratia-probe-condor-ap package (SOFTWARE-4846)
    • AI (Carl, BrianL): osg-pki-tools in OSG 3.6 (SOFTWARE-4786)


  • HTCondor 9.0.7 and 9.3.0 expected later today
  • HTCondor credmon requires python-scitokens but it's currently shipped only in OSG repos, not EPEL, meaning it's not available for UW builds of HTCondor. TimT will decide if it's better to also ship python-scitokens in the HTCondor repos, or try and get it into EPEL.

Support Update

  • University of Colorado (BrianL): they were not receiving payload jobs, had them redeploy with updated containers and it appears that things are working ok now
  • JLab (BrianL): help talk them through setting up a token issuer
  • JLab (Marian): debugging why their new schedd does not show up in the VO Summary

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. -
