Hi,

One of the services run by the EGI central accounting repository failed to restart correctly after a dropped connection. The connection to receive data from the EGI message broker was dropped on Friday evening (2015-03-13 18:03 UTC). The accounting data has been buffered on the message brokers but has not been downloaded to the accounting repository until Monday morning (2015-03-16 09:00 UTC).

Once the backlog of data has been loaded, it will be summarised, then the accounting portal will be updated. We expect this to take until the evening on Monday.

This problem affects grid accounting data only. The cloud accounting service recovered correctly and continued to run. We will be investigating how we can prevent this from occurring in the future.

I apologise for the inconvenience.

Dear All,
following our first broadcast, this is to remind all WLCG sites to reinstall or upgrade their perfSONAR instances to version 3.4.1 unless they haven't done it already. The deadline for sites to upgrade is 16th of February.  We'd like to stress out, that after updating, it's very important to reconfigure your instances following the instructions at https://twiki.opensciencegrid.org/bin/view/Documentation/InstallUpdatePS

We'd like to also ask ALL sites to reboot their perfSONAR instances in order to ensure that the latest security updates are applied and to check if you have correctly whitelisted the OSG subnet, which is now hosting the core infrastructure for WLCG perfSONAR. 

Finally, we would like to announce availability of the perfSONAR infrastructure monitoring at:
http://pfomd.grid.iu.edu

To access it, you will need to have your personal certificate loaded in the browser. You can check status of your perfSONAR instances by typing hostname (or just domain) in the quick search bar. Detailed information on the metrics and troubleshooting is available at https://twiki.opensciencegrid.org/bin/view/Documentation/TroubleFAQPS

For any issues, please open GGUS ticket for WLCG perfSONAR Support or contact wlcg-perfsonar-support@cern.ch. 

Best regards,
perfSONAR Support Team
