* Xavier Espinal (CERN) and Frank Wuerthwein (Univ. of California San Diego (US)) - News

- first meeting of the season: presentation of the plan of the near term

- storage workshop in late November in parallel with WLCG-HSF meeting

- discussions in DOMA-ACCESS to be seen in view of this workshop

-- today, DataLake (DL) prototyping

-- in 2 weeks, archival bandwidth for T1s to have raw numbers to think about

--- this will trigger a discussion during Nov workshop 

-- next meetings, presentations on the impact of the DL model on the total cost of ownership -  important to hear from sites


* Edgar Fajardo Hernandez (Univ. of California San Diego (US)) - US CMS Data Lake Prototype Proposal

- please see slides - here just a summary

- proposal for a US CMS DL prototype, following the WLCG DL definition

- Rucio and FTS used by default to manage data transfer between lakes

- single entry point to the DL

- data access from processing resources performed via streaming from either caches or the lake origin

- injection: offer a single https interface that Rucio can command

- tracking: Rucio

- GeoIP to choose the closest cache

- data tiers NANOAOD/SIM

- DL deployed with XRootS doors and caches via k8s

- Auth via scitokens

- write to the DL

-- 3 different storage system (jbod)

-- xrootd tpc from site/lake to DL

-- no data movement inside the DL

- read from DL

-- all NANOAOD/SIM in the DL

-- data read through caches

-- AAA: no plan yet

-- enable redirection to CMS Data federation???

- differences from today: "each T2 and T1 is its own data lake" vs. "US T1/T2 infrastructure as one lake"

- advantages: no replication within US; all access relevant replication is via cache; internal optimisation not transparent to the outside

- proposal to ignore tape archival for this prototype

- however, there are 2 extreme ways of fitting tape in

-- each QoS, e.g. tape archive including its buffer space, is its own DL

-- the entry point supports multiple QoS

- hardware requirements: ideally 3 caches; 2 or more sites as origins

- benchmarking goals: exercise deletions and measure missed deletions; exercise data input and data removal via FTS; exercise NANOAOD application access 

- proposed timeline at slide 15 (January 2021 - September 2021)

- concerns 

-- consistency (dirty deletes)

-- sociological aspect for user transition

-- no data movement inside the lake

-- metrics of success are fuzzy

- consistency problem -> XRootD or Rucio centric solution: XRootD is preferred

- assuming proto successful, merge Caltech and UCSD CMS namespaces

- transform the lessons learned from the DL prototype into a production DL for Run 3

- user area still a problem

- Q&A

-- how to monitor if the system is performant?

job success rate or efficiency; to think about the term of comparison

-- regarding workflow management system?

--- not yet finalised job submission and monitoring

--- NANOAOD does not need CMSSW/CRAB

--- global pool in US will be used (local batch system but grid) -> direct control of ENV variables 

- estimate of storage-saving?

the answer will come in October presentation

- cache known by Rucio?

xrootd preferred solution since caches are hidden by Rucio

- official CMS transition plan to Rucio - timescale?

NANOAOD is complete
