    • 4:30 PM 4:35 PM
      News 5m
    • 4:35 PM 4:45 PM
      Tape REST access 10m
      Speaker: Mihai PATRASCOIU (CERN)

      StoRM TAPE REST implementation

      • should be already available according Stephan

      CMS status

      • ~ 3 sites ready to be switched to TAPE REST
      • davs protocol in Rucio already configured for TAPE RSEs
        • Rucio automatically sends transfers requests from TAPE RSEs with "bringonline timeout"
        • this is sufficient for FTS to use TAPE REST for davs transfers
      • now it is sufficient just to delete SRM protocol

      ATLAS status

      • details tracked in the Tape REST twiki timeline (FZK, CERN in production)
      • stuck while trying to understand if it would make sense to reorganize storage namespace for tokens
        • no reorganization
      • revive effort to move away from SRM
    • 4:45 PM 5:00 PM
      Transfers with tokens 15m
      Speakers: Petr Vokac (Czech Technical University in Prague (CZ)), Francesco Giacomini (INFN CNAF)

      Rucio / FTS & tokens

      dCache access with just tokens including storage.* scopes

      • latest dCache allows more simple configuration that gives access only to tokens with storage scopes
        • available in 9.2 and backported to 8.2.33
      • ongoing tests before we ask dCache sites to configured tokens
        • DESY is testing this configuration
        • FNAL also for CMS
        • PRAGUELCG2 is going to test it for ATLAS
      • preferred solution for WLCG experiments
        • sites will be most probably asked to move to the most recent dCache releases when they would like to enable tokens
    • 5:00 PM 5:10 PM
      Packet marking 10m
      Speakers: Marian Babik (CERN), Shawn Mc Kee (University of Michigan (US))

      Scitags support announced:

      • Rucio from 32.4.0 (interface to FTS to be defined)
      • FTS from 3.12.11 and GFAL2 from 2.22.0
        • release next week / deployed on CERN pilot instance
        • other production instances with standard schedule (+ 2 week)
      • Xrootd (this ticket now becomes relevant: https://github.com/xrootd/xrootd/issues/1984 HTTP-TPC support)
        • Brian contacted Cedric - XRootD development can move forward with SciTag support
        • currently XRootD supports just static configuration (can't be used on multi-VO instances and no activity details)

      UCSD/Caltech testing flowd, interested in both fireflies and packet marking
      .  - Looking into flowd integration with Kubernetes
      .  - Packet marking readout already available via sFlow

      Preparations for SC23 on-going, plans:
      .   - Show 400Gbps packet marking (with xrootd, disk-to-disk and iperf3)
          - Use fireflies and show R&E dashboard based on data received (in collaboration with ESnet)
      We will submit abstract to DC24 workshop to give an update on our plans.
