          Dear IT C-COD,
          Although it looks like the dashboard is full, the scenario is such:
          Many AP sites haven't updated their alarms (in OK status) or tickets (expired on 12th) since the weekend.
          Some of the sites are in downtime, and therefore those alarms/tickets are currently ignored.
          Lastly, and this is one for the WLCG meeting: The apel situation does not appear to have been finally resolved:
          "APEL Publication works normally and records are properly received, yet no update can currently be reflected in SAM or in the accounting portal.
          Note to operators: please ignore alarms on the APEL-Pub test until further notice."
          Therefore, I advise a moratorium on these tickets/alarms until APEL tells us all is OK again.

        • fixing MPI sites (from the MPI WG) 15m
          ** The SAM MPI tests are raising alarms from this morning, as agreed last week **

          Update received from Isabel Campos (MPI Task Force) last week here summarised.
          The current situation is the following:
          there are 90 sites which publish the MPI-START tag, 88 are tested by SAM and 2 other sites (IFCA and RAL) are not tested because the way they publish the SubCluster info.
          Of those sites: 69 working fine (67 at SAM + IFCA + RAL)
          20 errors
          2 maintenance
          which gives a 76% of sites passing the tests (75% if we don't count the sites out of SAM)
          For all the sites with errors a ticket in GGUS has been opened and most of them are working actively on finding a solution. There is a guide with the list of errors found and possible solutions for them at
