    • Shawn’s suggested test procedure:
      • Start testing by polling sites with capable hardware: USCMS or ATLAS
      • Concerned about overloading pS instances on marginal hardware
      • Validation tools don’t exist yet, done manually with Kibana queries
      • Compare overlapping time ranges to confirm record counts match
    • Derek has started refactoring the perfSonar collectors so we can change the ES prefix. Doing some other minor cleanup while there (e.g., adding ACKs to prevent data loss).
  • Ilija and Nebraska: Enable alert monitoring when pS instance stops reporting to UNL ES.
    • Lots of work on this over the past week. We think GRACC piece is done – might just be missing the final confirmation and putting things into place?
