OSG Software Team

  • Kubernetes Hackathon today! Potential projects:
    • Add Prometheus monitoring for the Postgresql node
    • Set up a secondary CHTC (GLOW) frontend on River
  • AI (Mat): Update osg-configure-bosco dependency and build osg-configure
  • AI (Mat): xcache-reporter packaging issues
  • AI (Mat): kick off tests for GlideinWMS 3.7.6 and 3.9.4
  • AI (BrianL): build new osg-scitokens-mapfile
  • AI (BrianL): add support for manual client registration to osg-token-renewer
  • AI (BrianL): address issues with gratia-probe-condor-ap


  • Additional develoment work is needed to support multi-VO APs, especially with Gratia reporting (probes can only deal with one VO at a time) and figuring out how to map jobs to VOs in a way that the probe can recognize.

  • rpm --verify test in VMU tests does not handle virtual dependencies; it does two things:

    • verify that all listed packages were installed (can be done with a yum flag)
    • verify that files on disk match files in package (has caught at least one error within living memory)

Support Update

  • GSU (BrianL): investigate SSH certificate issues
  • JLab (BrianL): troubleshoot missing payload records from APs
  • Lancium (BrianL): investigate HAS_SINGULARITY = False
  • SDSC (Mat): troubleshoot cache/origin authentication
