System Management Working Group (SMWG) of sys admins from Hepix and grid sites has been setup to address the fabric management problems that HEP sites might have. The group is open and its goal is not to implement new tools but to share what is already in use at sites according to existing best practices. Some sites are already publicly sharing their tools and sensors and some other sites do write very good documentation and share it. The aim is to extend this to a general practice and in a more organised way and avoid the duplication of effort that occurs when system administrators are solving mostly the same problems over and over. The result has been the creation of a WEB site ( that hosts a subversion repository for management and monitoring tools and a wiki. It works as a file sharing system and single entry point for documentation distributed in other sites. The site, based on gridsite. This paper describes how the group is working and what has been achieved so far.


Cooperative effort to collect documentation and tools from HEP sites sys admin in a
