OSG Software Team

  • Kubernetes Hackathon today
  • AI (Mat): build stash-origin chart (SOFTWARE-5258)
  • AI (BrianL): Check on /tmp in HPC exec nodes; update Canary2 to testing
  • AI (Carl): complete custom workflows ticket


  • Mat: Topology DataFederation namespaces PR ready for review and also deployed on ITB.
  • Marco: Working on GlideinWMS 3.9.6; adding Python 3.9 support.
  • Derek: systemd-tmpfiles-setup did not create /var/lock/condor on one site because the "condor" user doesn't exist at the time systemd-tmpfiles-setup runs. TimT says that condor_master since 8.9.12 should create the necessary directories on startup if they are missing; Derek will send email to ToddM regarding this feature.

Support Update

  • Purdue (Derek, Carl, BrianL): help sort out fixes for incorrect accounting of whole node pilots
  • FNAL (BrianL): redeployed FNAL CEs; still on OSG 3.5 so they're at risk of running into the same FD limit again
  • FNAL (Carl): packaging fixes verified by Yujun. Submitted PR with some of Yujun's requested changes.
  • BNL (Mat): Still debugging CA certs. BrianB had a back-and-forth with the admin; Mat will follow along.
  • Florida (Derek): OSG shoveler issuer is issuing token with wrong audience, Fixed! The JSON of the user-config was not valid (my fault, typo)

OSG Release Team

  • Ready for Testing
    • xrootd-monitoring-shoveler 1.1.2
    • Upcoming: HTCondor 9.11.0 RC2 (for patch Tuesday)
    • HTCondor 9.0.16 RC1 (important bug fixes)
