LAL Site Report - HEPix - FZK 2005

main resources changes
Main Resources Changes
  • No HW change since BN Hepix
    • 6TB on order (SATA extension to HDS 9570V), 3TB more planned in autumn
    • Call for tender for new CPUs (20 dual Opteron ?)
  • Linux upgrade to Scientific Linux
    • Currently installed on all new machines (i386 or amd64)
    • Upgrade of old RH 7.2/9 machines (25) planned shortly. Will be done with Quattor (currently being set up)
  • Future HW upgrades driven by Tier2 project
    • x3 in 2006 and 2007 for CPU and storage

mail service
Mail Service
  • Authenticated SMTP
  • Spam : Bayesian filtering useful
    • Filtering efficiency : ~95% - pretty constant
    • Centralized database (no per user)
    • Management cost very low since last summer
      • More than 3 months needed to reach current efficiency
      • Feed filter db with a few hundreds of undecteted SPAMs every month coming from 3-5 users
  • Move to Cyrus v2 still a project…
  • Plan to implement a calendar server
    • Based on CalDAV
    • Client integrated in Mulberry (and many others probably)

mail service blacklists
Mail Service : Blacklists
  • LAL mailer blacklisted because of… Squid (Web cache)
  • LAL faulty : Squid misconfiguration allowing to use it as a TCP relay for almost any protocol…
    • One exploit is to use squid to workaround relay restriction on mailer and use it to send SPAM
    • Misconfiguration 10 years old…!!!
  • LAL blacklisted by 2 DNS blacklist service :
    • http://opm.blitzed.org : very professional, well documented automatic procedure to be removed
    • http://www.spin.it (based on ???) : unable to get the reason, a nightmare to be removed from BL.
    • Advice : if using blacklist, use well managed ones.

certificates
Certificates
  • For 1 year, moving to certificates for Web authorization
    • Delivered by CNRS to every CNRS employee
    • Suppress traditional user/pwd auth as much as possible
    • More service available to LAL users outside lab
  • Moving to certificates for Subversion (CVS replacement)
    • Subversion access through HTTP + WebDav
  • Moving to certificated for WiKi authorization
    • Very successfull with Trac
    • Not working properly with TWiKi
  • Promoting use of certificate for mail signature (or encryption)

windows infrastructure
Windows Infrastructure
  • IN2P3 forest still very successfull
    • 11 labs in production
    • All IN2P3 labs should participate
    • An administrators group set up in April (5 persons, 1 Trac site)
    • Management cost very low…
    • Looking at MOM to get centralized alert on key infrastructure components
    • Move of LAL AD domain to IN2P3 forest delayed
  • Antivirus : moving from F-Secure to McAfee
    • License policy change at CNRS / french Universities
    • + : MSI deployment, - : signatures updates with SMS
    • A couple of machines infected every month : generally when user has the administrator accout…, cleaning is time consuming…

slide8
GRID
  • Paris region Tier2 project officially launched
    • Will be part of French MOU for LCG
    • Getting financial support is still a challenge…
  • Partnership of 3 labs : DAPNIA, LAL, LPNHE
    • Will be 1 unified resource from the GRID
    • Distributed over 3 sites
  • Target : simulation AND analysis
    • Opened to all LHC experiments + 20% non LHC (EGEE, local)
    • CPU capacity : 1500 CPUs
    • Large amount of storage planned : 300 TB of disks
      • Looking at LUSTRE for a distributed filesystem (HP partnership)

miscellaneous projects
Miscellaneous Projects
  • Quattor : nearly in production…
  • Serial Console Management with SLAC/CERN tool : not yet
    • Presented at Hepix by C. Boeheim and H. Meinhard
  • Conference organization tool
    • InDiCo installation postponed (too many problems encountered)
      • EU project based on CERN Agenda, presented at Edinburgh
    • Agenda started and now in production for internal and external use
  • Automatic visitor registration : postponed
    • Currently done manually on request (difficult but still manageable)
