Message 4842 - Posted: 18 Apr 2017, 15:52:02 UTC

CERN want to update the WMAgent we use to submit CMS@Homejobs. This is tentatively scheduled for Thursday. I'll let the queue drain, and possibly kill off some of the smaller batches I've been submitting to get me finer timing control. I expect that we can go another 24 hours before I start draining the queue, but keep an eye on the running jobs graph and be prepared to set No New Tasks when you see it dipping -- or do it beforehand if you really want to protect your daily job quotas.
More news as details become firmer.

My best estimate at the moment is that the queue will start to drain Thursday morning, and should be dry within a couple of hours.

Thanks for the notice.
What is the estimate, when jobs will be available again?

Before the end of the day, I would hope. Once the queue's drained enough for the update to take place, that should happen quite quickly. Then it's just a matter of my being notified to submit a new batch, and then an hour or two for the jobs to start appearing on the Condor server.

Another couple of hours yet -- Alan got caught in a lengthy meeting.

WMAgent is updated and I've submitted a test batch. However, there's a warning about an expired proxy certificate that I've alerted Alan to. I'll keep monitoring.

[Edit] The message was a red herring. Jobs are now available and my servers have started grabbing them. [/Edit]
