Operations News

  • No problems following the upgraded to 2.1.13-9 CASTOR client of the V09 generation of WNs. Remaining generations are being done this week.
  • rsyslog TCP logging now begin sent from all headnodes to the second central syslog servers. We have requested that Amanda backups be turned off across all CASTOR headnodes apart from puppetmaster and puppetdev.
  • WAN rates seem to have doubled since the C300 replacement on Tuesday.
  • Haven't managed to repeat 2.1.13 db bug after turning on ORACLE auditing and stager debugging yet.

Operations Problems

  • Bug that has been seen on Facilities where recalls fail to be scheduled to a disk server has been seen on CMS. Tim implemented the fix, which involved invalidating all recalls.

Blocking Issues

  • Can't upgrade puppet until someone spends time learning about administering it (to replace Chris) and this may delay an SL6 upgrade
