# Xin's slides
Please see the slides themselves for the content
Not planning tests at T0
...because it's critical
Vlado - if you want to test T0, do so outside the heavy ion run oct/nov
Ale - good to test sites under stress
Giuseppe - but this ion run will be a very atypical time
Oliver - any problems with FTS? Submission rate OK?
- no problems noted
- no failures noted
Let FTS team know when the next test happens, we'll check monitoring
# Contributions from other experiments
Need to get an explicit message from cms, lhcb and alice about their role in the group
# Finalising "best practise" documentation
No further comments. Oliver to create final doc from the text
# FTS report
Configuration of fts3-pilot has been updated to submit bulks of 500 files. No problems observed. FTS team proposes moving to 1000. No objections.
Oliver - summarised thread on managing a dCache queue. Do we need to use this advanced queue management when it's only useful for handling priority requests at the FTS level?
Ale: ...premature to implement priorities in FTS for staging
better check tape families, tags etc.
Discussion on backing off submissions with FTS. Conclusion - FTS team to check feasibility of making "SRM_INTERNAL_ERROR in response to srmBringOnline" a non-fatal error.
# Info from other submission systems
# Metric reporting
# Next steps
Oliver - should we use this group to follow up results of Atlas tests, making results generally accessible, or is this happening in Atlas anyway?
Xin - good to use the WG for this
Oliver - propose for next meeting to have a technical dialogue between the dCache team and Atlas/sites/FTS. Topic would be preparation/optimisation for the Atlas tests. Accepted.
Next meeting September
