- CSC General HPC updates - New Haswell Hardware for supercluster and supercomputer - Slurm/Lustre - - a slurm/sshd/iptables-based interactive shell load balancer. Replaced large memory (1TB) interactive nodes. - DDN SFA12k - Using ELK stack (Elasticsearch Logstash Kibana) - sort through dCache logs - Search through auditd logs - anybody used shred? root logins from bad IPs? - Updates at T2_FI_HIP - SE and CE for Helsinki Insitute of Physics - dCache to 2.10 / postgresql to 9.3 update - To virtualize dCache door/admin and other nodes (bdii, xrootd AAA) - Will use Ansible for configuration - HP 5x DL360 G7 + 26 x D2600 has been very stable. (7 Segate 2TB disks replaced over 3 years, two P411 controllers) - Next hardware renewal hopefully during 2015, probably HP SL4540 - Decommission of - resources moved into one of CSC's openstack - Converted unused IB port in dCache pool servers to 10GbE with QSFP-to-SFP+ adapters.
