Meeting 2019-01-28


  • Brian
  • Edgar
  • Garhan
  • Rob Gardner

Derek, Shawn, and John were out due to the OSG Operations F2F.


  • Ilija, Derek: Alarms are working! (And they corresponded to a real outage too!). We can watch these over the next few weeks to determine whether they are set to the appropriate sensitivity.
  • Derek: Deployed RSV replacement to testing.
  • Derek: Recreated ps-collector setup in testing.
  • Derek Refactored 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).
  • Derek: Created parallel data pipeline, with parallel ES indexes to store the data at Nebraska.

Action items

  • Ilija, RobG: Tidy up alerts emails - rename from “ATLAS” to “SAND-CI” if possible, remove links to the ATLAS ADC Twiki page.
  • Derek: Test RSV replacements and verify data. Suggested test procedure (from 14 January): - 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
