Support Update

  • Georgia State University (BrianL): followed up on their suggestion to use SSH ProxyCommand
  • JLab (BrianL): had more discussions about setting up token issuers
  • University of Southern California (BrianL): worked through issues requesting tokens for the backfill container and problems with startup
  • University of Connecticut (Mat, Marian): modifying the namespaces that are exported in their Stash Origins. Mat provided XRootD configuration changes; Marian will take care of CVMFS syncing.
  • JLab (Marian, BrianL): Updated certificate configuration in JLab frontend to avoid issues with the Let's Encrypt root certificate.
  • NIKHEF (Marian): Helping update their HTCondor install; there is a large version jump so much config has to be adjusted.

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. -
