CMS application job queue is being run down.
We want to update the WMAgent job controller, so I've stopped the next batch (I hope). We should run out of jobs in 10-12 hours, so set any machine running CMS tasks to No New Tasks as soon as practicable. Should be up again tomorrow. 26 Jun 2017, 16:00:39 UTC · Comment
