          Dear FR CCOD,
          this morning there are a lot of items on the dashboard:

          - ROC_CERN: tickets expired for CA-ALBERTA-WESTGRID-T2, CERN-PROD and CEFET-RJ, old alarm for CERN-PROD

          - ROC_AP: tickets non solved by 30 days for VN-IOIT-KEYLAB, ticket expired for BEIJING-LCG2

          - ROC_NE: ticket expired for KTU-BG-GLITE

          Let's see if in the next hours the ROD teams will handle properly that items

          As past weeks, an item of discussion at the operation meeting maybe the APEL problem affecting two AP sites (TW-FTT and IN-DAE-VECC-02) since some months:
          GGUS:52103, GGUS:51229.

          ROC_AP involved the apel supporters to try solving the problems

          Best Regards,
          Alessandro Paolini

          ROC_Canada and Russia did not validate there reports this week

          South West Europe ROC: Last week asked "There is a new value in gstat2.0: GlueCEPolicyAssignedJobSlots, which is not queried yet by SGE. Therefore, our SGE sites will have a critical error. Following a mail from GonÁalo Borges the request to query this variable has not reached properly the SGE supporters. Is it possible to change the error to a warning until they will have implemented it in SGE?

          This is now released within the gstat-validation RPM.
