  1. SA1 transition Maite Barroso AA Meeting 02-Feb-10 - Amsterdam

  2. Overview Regionalization of operation tools Transition of regional teams and grid operator on duty roles Transition to global international tasks (O-E-x) EGEE SA1 tasks without a clear placement in EGI Prototype NGIs SA1 Coordination Meeting - 15-Dec-09 - CERN

  3. Regionalization of operation tools Regional monitoring with Nagios • Mixed deployment: • Validation central regional setup at CERN (1 box per ROC) • Regional boxes in all ROCs • Ongoing testing, to be compared to validation instances Operations dashboard using Nagios • Validation central instance with regional views available • Ongoing testing, comparison with central instance + SAM • Regional instance available for test Next critical steps: • Validation by ROCs of regional Nagios • Validation of central dashboard (with regional views)using Nagios • Switch from CERN Nagios boxes to regional ones • Switch dashboard from SAM to Nagios Time estimate: 1 month, being optimistic! SA1 Coordination Meeting - 15-Dec-09 - CERN

  4. Regionalization of operation tools Issues: • Readiness of ROCs to test new components and give feedback • Information flow • Documentation, deployment guides, support mailing lists, etc • Complex coordination between tools, many dependencies Early experiences • Early willingness to deploy regional instances has calmed down • They are newly developed tools to be deployed and run by ROCs • Central instances with regional view offer same functionality but are run by somebody else • In some cases (GGUS) we see the opposite request • From regional helpdesk to regional view in GGUS The final scenario at the end of EGEE will be mixed (and might be the case for the next years) • Regional instances coexisting with central ones providing regional views • New scenario not considered till now… SA1 Coordination Meeting - 15-Dec-09 - CERN

  5. Regional teams (COD) They are all regional since June this year Very active is testing new regionalized tools and give feedback Essential forum to disseminate information to regions about ongoing changes Questionnaire done to understand readiness of NGI regional teams • Difficult to contact NGIs • Mixed level of readiness • Many ROCs will keep present structure, 3 will split, 2 with many sites (SEE and CE) SA1 Coordination Meeting - 15-Dec-09 - CERN

  6. Global international tasks Summary: no major issues, ongoing transition to new responsible O-E-1Operation of the grid topology and configuration repositories O-E-2Operation of accounting repositories for international VOs O-E-3Operation of the grid repositories storing monitoring and performance data, and other related information O-E-4Operation of the grid operations portals O-E-5Grid operation and oversight of the e-infrastructure O-E-6Central and regional Grid support, operation of a ticketing system and of a document repository O-E-7Triage of incoming problems O-E-8Gathering of requirements for user support tools and processes O-E-9Coordination of middleware roll-out and deployment, middleware pilot and certification testbeds O-E-10Coordination of resource allocation and of brokering support for VOs from NGIs O-E-11Coordination of interoperations between NGIs and other grids. O-E-12Coordination of network support O-E-13Coordination of definition of best practices, operations procedures, operations requirements O-E-14Operation of production grid core software services, catch-all services for international VOs, catch-all CA O-E-15Coordination of security policy development and maintenance O-E-16Coordination of security and incident response O-E-17Coordination of development and maintenance of operational tools SA1 Coordination Meeting - 15-Dec-09 - CERN

  7. EGEE tasks not clear in EGI GSV: contributions from NGIs, leadership without clear funding associated Catch all ROC: not seen as needed in EGI, buddy system between NGIs? Dteam VO: more discussions needed to understand present use Weekly operations meeting: O-E-5 NL/Pol? Failover instances of ops tools: several solutions, to be evaluated SLA • Coordination: Amsterdam • Follow up availability reports: O-E-5 NL/Pol • Availability recalculation requests (needs global understanding of ongoing issues, not purely technical) SA1 Coordination Meeting - 15-Dec-09 - CERN

  8. NGI prototypes Some ROCs/NGIs expressed will to start activities as NGIs as soon as possible, in EGEE times • This was not originally planned, EGEE SA1 planned distribution to ROCs • Proposal to get volunteer NGIs to go through the process, find issues and document them • Poland from CE ROC • First theoretical analysis done • Many questions raised • Target date on end of February to finish the exercise and report about it • Greece from SEE ROC • Will wait to migration from SAM to nagios (mid March) and then start • Serbia and Turkey will follow SA1 Coordination Meeting - 15-Dec-09 - CERN
