DM - Expert Documentation¶
... is finally initiated by David Caratelli :)
For super-duper experts, if interested in,
PUBS base framework documentation is on DocDB 5400
Keep updated! Also attach the latest version to this Wiki.
Starting the PUBS daemon running¶
The daemons should be restarted every Monday-Wednesday-Friday-Sunday.
Details are on this page. Starting the PUBS online daemon
Moving all projects to a single online machine¶
Details are on this page. Running all PUBS projects on single server
Building up the PUBS online testbed¶
Details are on this page. Building up the PUBS online testbed
Mapping project name to names on GUI.¶
How do I find the project name (database table name) given the name of a specific box on the monitoring gui? Project GUI Map
Project Debugging Home-Page (list of projects and debug info for each one). Project Debug¶
Changing the Database Configuration for Online PUBS Online PUBS Database Reconfig¶
Correcting Errors PUBS¶
Errors in Metadata Generation From Incomplete Files Correcting Failed Metadata Generation¶
This is a problem with incomplete files that have less than one event.
Failed Near1 Binary Transfers Correcting Failed Near1 Binary Transfer¶
If files transferred from EVB to Near1 fail to transfer to the FTS dropbox, errors will appear in the Near1 Binary Transfer box on PUBS.
Errors in Registering File Metadata and crontab entries for kerberos tickets and grid proxies Correcting Failed Metadata Registration¶
When there are SSL problems registering file metadata into the SAM database or missing crontab entries.
Expired Certificate on Near1¶
Running out of Disk Space on ubdaq-prod-evb ?¶
useful info: there are ~ 33 TB of disk space in /data/ on the evb machine. PUBS will try and clear data in /data/uboonedaq/TestRuns/ until the disk-usage reaches 40% of /data/uboonedaq/TestRuns/ is empty.
If this is the case there are several things one should do:
0) Idenfity who is using up the disk space. Options:
--> a) /data/uboonedaq/rawdata/
> this is where data from "official" runs goes. Files here are seen (and should be eventually removed) by PUBS.> b) /data/uboonedaq/TestRuns/
> this is disk-space DAQ people use to test things. It is not seen by PUBS and needs to be removed by hand in order to be cleared.> c) /data/uboonedaq/lukhanin/
> test-space for Gennadiy. Also needs to be removed manually in order to free up space.> d) /data/OTHER/
> data used by someone else.> a) clear_binary_evb is having issues.
If most of the space is not being used by /data/uboonedaq/rawdata/ we need to free space manually. If it is urgent to free up space (i.e. data-taking should not be interrupted and the disk will fill up rather soon) you are authorized to clear /data/uboonedaq/TestRuns/. Contact any other person who is using up a considerable amount of space and ask them to quickly remove contents in their /data/ folder.
If /data/uboonedaq/rawdata/ is using up a significant amount of space, the problem is probably PUBS' fault.
1) identify the cause of the problem. Why is disk space not being freed? Possible causes:
--> b) clear_binary_evb does not find any new files to clear. This indicates a possible problem with one of the projects that clear_binary_evb depends on. A possible cause could be poor network speed to drain data out of the evb machine.
Questions? Ask Kirby
Running out of Disk Space on /datalocal/ @ near1 ?¶
If the disk-usage @ /datalocal/ is above 95% as an immediate action please stop the "mv_binary_evb" project. Notify the PUBS team that you just did this and start addressing the disk-space issue
Running out of Disk Space on sebXX? uB_DataMgmt_PCXX_seb06_data/disk_occ¶
This is a super nova stream related issue. The super nova PUBS projects are located on ws02. Please restart the daemon on ws02. The error will be cleared after ~15min.
Further notes: this particular error can happen when on of the PUBS projects for the SNS (super nova stream) gets stuck. We are using a cpulimiter to keep the load down on the ws02 machine. Something the cpulimiter can hang one of the projects and cause new incoming SNS file registration to halt. Restarting the daemon will kill and refresh the PUBS projects.
Collaborator has asked me, the DM expert, to prevent the deletion of one or more SN runs.¶
To prevent the deletion of one or more runs in the SN stream login as uboonepro. Head over the to the SN PUBS script directory located here /home/uboonepro/pubs/dstream_online/snova. Here you will find "frozen_runs.txt". In this file insert new line separated run numbers. The monitoring script will read this ASCII text file, and prevent the deletion of files in this text file.
The daemon on ws02 has mysteriously died.¶
DM experts are currently debugging an issue related to the daemon on ws02 being killed by the kernel. If you are a DM expert on shift and you find the ws02 daemon has mysteriously died. Please execute the following command to copy the log files to a safe location, then please restart the daemon.
mkdir -p /data/uboonepro/ws02_daemon_failures/`date +%D`; cp /home/uboonepro/pubs/log/ubdaq-prod-ws02.fnal.gov/* /data/uboonepro/ws02_daemon_failures/`date +%D`/
