Operations News

  • Chris starting doing CASTOR on Day Duty from this week.
  • 2.1.14-3 templates now ready to be rolled out to preprod. We plan to upgrade preprod after the essential ups power work this week, along with latest errata.
  • CASTOR F2F likely to be 9-10 Dec. (SdW, RA, CP, BC and TF expected to attend. MV not.)

Operations Problems

  • (01/11/13) Deletions of ATLAS files caused stager to become unresponsive to SRMs for a while with "[SRM_INTERNAL_ERROR] Too many threads busy with Castor at the moment." message. Batch deletions at 2000 files per request with no "waits" in between seemed to cause problems.
  • (04/11/13) Repeat of above problem, this time with batch deletions at 1000 files per request with no "waits" in between seemed to cause problems - as do 500 file deletions with 10 second wait between requests.
