John Shade
Weekly EGEE infrastructure coordination meeting.
We discuss the weekly running of the production grid infrastructure based on weekly reports from the attendees. The reported issues are discussed, assigned to the relevant teams, followed up and escalated when needed. The meeting is also the forum for the sites to get a summary of the weekly WLCG activities and plans
  • EGEE operations team
  • EGEE ROC managers
  • site representatives (optional)
  • GGUS representatives
  • VO representatives

          CERN, France, DECH, NE, ROC_LA, Russia and UKI had not validated their production reports by 14:00. This is not good (6 had, 7 hadn't).

          From ROC Italy:
          Top-bdii core service for IT-ROC has been migrated to gLite 3.2 on SL5 x86_64 and we observed an improvement of the performance. What about the migration to gLite 3.2 for the site-bdii service? Is there any known blocking issue? We think that migration for both top-bdii and site-bdii services should be recommended for the considerable performance improvement.

          Apologies: we cannot partecipate to the meeting.

          LHC progress Report from CERN's Director General:

          This weekend we’ve seen further important progress with beam commissioning in the LHC at 450 GeV. On Friday evening, 4 December, beam circulated with more than one proton bunch for the first time. This was another significant step towards running at useful beam intensities.

          Then in the early hours of Sunday, the operators succeeded in circulating four bunches in each of the LHC’s two beams and announced stable beams for the experiments. On Sunday evening there was further stable running with higher-intensity bunches. All six LHC experiments have observed collisions and collected useful quantities of data. They were able immediately to begin checking the operation of their detectors, with excellent results that augur well for the future.
