      Cancelled due to conflicting DC24 Ops meeting


      Small topics that might be discussed in this meeting

      • dCache 9.2.x and xrootd.root door configuration behavior
        • fixed in 9.2.8
      • WLCG Ops: EGI GOCDB downtime for TAPE service (GGUS:165354)
        • SRM.nearline no longer makes sense for WebDAV endpoints with TAPE REST
        • we need new GOCDB "Service Type"
        • we need same functionality also in OSG Topology downtime
        • start discussion with CRIC developers + OSG responsible to find best way for future
          • we really don't wan't to keep SRM.nearline just to be able to declare downtime for TAPE
      • Alma9 xrd client & sites with Root CA signed by SHA1
        • we concluded in issue#2150 XRootD should make CA validation compatible with other aplications (ignore signature on self-signed root CA)
        • see proress in this ticket
      • gfal2 cleanup of old dependencies (Alma9)
        • openldap-compat which is used only by LFC and optionally by SRM(?)
        • make also globus (SRM) dependencies optional?
      • FTS optimizer values (different for ATLAS vs. CMS vs. Pilot instance, but same behavior for HTTP-TPC)
        • The FTS Optimizer has two step sizes when increasing connections on the link
          • A conservative step size (default 1, configurable, "OptimizerIncreaseStep" setting), when the Optimizer is set to mode "1"
          • An aggressive step size (default 2, configurable, "OptimizerAggressiveIncreaseStep" setting), when the Optimizer is set to mode "2"
        • Then, the difference between mode "2" and mode"3" is how the number of actives is calculated:
          • In mode "2", number of actives on the link = number of transfers on the link
          • In mode "3", number of actives on the link = number of TCP streams on the link. This was valid in the times of GridFTP, but for HTTP, every transfer only uses one stream
          • In essence, not much difference between mode "2" and mode "3".
        • Optimizer documentation? Link?
      • topics with low priority:
      • switch gfal default HTTP library from libneon to libcurl
      • disable grid proxy delegation during FTS HTTP-TPC (by default?)
      • Do we need condor_test_token equivalent for storage?
      • dCache: authzdb -> multimap + omnisession migration issue#6607
      • dCache: removing internal dependencies on SRM space manager -> transition to dCache quotas
      • reminders about existing (HTTP-TPC) related issues
        • dCache: HTTP-TPC performance markers and RemoteConnections dCache#7441
          • different performance markers types? (start, connection established, connection closed, finish, ...)
        • StoRM: no support for RemoteConnections in performance markers (ticket?)
        • StoRM: Forbidden TPC push transfers on gclouds platform (STOR-1563)
        • StoRM: support for "stat" with storage.create and storage.modify STOR-1600
    • 4:35 PM 4:55 PM
      Transfers with tokens 20m
      Speakers: Petr Vokac (Czech Technical University in Prague (CZ)), Francesco Giacomini (INFN CNAF)
    • 4:55 PM 5:05 PM
