Cluster Status: ALICE was not running for the past couple weeks so the cluster has not been full. Some ALICE problems have been fixed, possibly related to timeouts w/vobox? The vobox network was improved. Cluster is now below 1600 cores because rack 9 and 10 are being used for xrootd/SL6 testing.
Recent Outages: Users not using io resources have caused some problemsh. Network connection to project was being saturated to the projectio resource was lowered to 300.
Downtimes: We will remount /project 3/6 (Tuesday) 8-10am.
Procurements: In hand of LBNL lawyers - responses from vendors in ~3 weeks.
SL4 retirement: Will go away 3/6.
Archiving unused accounts: We need to streamline backups - will move home directories into a common subdir and exclude from backups.
Project Accounts: staremb is in use, some complications with priorities.
Grid Issues: ALICE global files being written to eliza8 instead of /home - is this the long term solution? Another solution might be to no use GPFS quotas.
