Operations News

  • CASTOR 2.1.13-9 NS upgrade scheduled for Wednesday 2013/07/03.
  • All Puppet clients now upgraded to 2.7.22.

Operations Problems

  • Callout on Thursday evening - high CPU usage by diskmanagerd on gdss611. This was resolved as not being a CASTOR issue, the actual cause appeared to be a load spike coupled with a lack of irqbalance on some disk servers.
  • Callout early on Friday morning - stagerd started to cause swapping on the ATLAS stager. Restarting the daemon solved the immediate issue, but the cause is undetermined and needs further investigation.

Blocking Issues
