Attending: Eric Elizabeth, Larry, Lisa, JeffP, JeffA, Craig, Iwona, Mike
Personnel changes: Iwona to take over as PDSF lead in November with Elizabeth and Larry on the admin side and Eric on the user services side.
Utilization: Cluster has been running at capacity which is still about 1500 cores. Mostly STAR and ALICE jobs.
Upcoming downtimes: No date yet but will need a downtime to move the admin nodes and a switch. Currently waiting to get a new rack. Also there will be an NGF downtime probably in November.
Procurements: All new hardware has arrived and we expect to have the new compute nodes in place by 10/17. New xrootd servers for ALICE will be ready Monday. Dayabay new disks are awaiting delivery of power strips.
Grid Issues: JeffP mentioned the scaling issues they run into when the try to run more jobs because of all the little files globus creates. For now things are running OK but a long term solution will need to be found.
Craig mentioned that the dayabay data rate is considerable higher than expected and this is putting a strain on their resources.
Mike asked about a way to automatically get ATLAS users certs into NIM but there isn't a way - the users just need to do it themselves.
Elizabeth asked JeffP if they had done any further torque testing and described that we now have reservations working.
