Some suggestions raised at the WLCG Management Board are listed below:

  • I.Fisk asked for the correlation between “availability as seen via SAM” vs. the “real jobs success rates of the Experiments (via Crab, Ganga, etc)”.
  • H.Marten suggested that at the Operation Workshop at CHEP the sites should have the top 5 issues for each service.
  • I.Fisk also suggested a session for feedback from the sites to the developers, in order to improve the services and the software developed.
  • R.Tafirout suggested that sites should share solutions; sometimes the information is known by others but not easily accessible.

Other topics:

  1. Results of review of CERN service deployment wrt resilience to glitches / common service interventions
  2. What do we need to operate the WLCG service for LHC data taking?
  3. Cross site problem determination
  4. Top middleware and operations issues
  5. Implications of migration to LSF 7
