Hi All,

  The next meeting on xrootd development, testing, deployment and monitoring 
will be Tuesday, 24 August, 2004 at 10:15 CA, 19:15 Europe and 18:15 UK. The
location at SLAC is SCS conference room B. I'm not at CERN this week so if
you want to call in from there, you will have to find a way to do it. (If it
is impossible to call the US, let me know and I'll see if we can call you.)

  The connection info for this meeting is:

   phone:     +1-510-665-5437

   o mailing list/HN (again)
   o latest fixes - Alvise, Fabrizio, Andy
      o progress on the problem list
      o testing asynchronous mode
      o getting rid of feature in BaBar KanAccess.cfg that allows "localroot" 
        to be specified there

      o building on MacOSX
      o Verbose echo of compilation commands (requested by Fons)
      o Building security modules independently of the rest of xrootd 
      o Making TXNetFile depend on security libraries entirely as plugins

      o wrapper - Fabrizio
      o SRT integration - Pete
      o checksums
   o Sites
     o Example configurations
     o Updates to servers at SLAC on Thursday and during the computing shutdown
        o moving to latest version (20040824-0002) for both xrootd and olbd
        o cleanup of config files
        o making all access to /store readonly
        o turning off non-xrootd log rotation for olbd
        o olb03/olb04/kanolb-a renaming (arrghh!)
     o Padova - Fulvio/Guglielmo
        o problems reported by Antonio:
     o CNAF
        o problems reported by Enrica
     o RAL - Chris
        o new disk space?
        o import of skims
        o rpm structure (libstdc++, config files)
        o cleaning up classic Kanga data
     o In2p3 - Jean-Yves
        o use and status (disk space)
        o status of import of kan data (presumably skims at this point)
           o confusion about what should be made available at In2p3 (ARTF)
        o plans to move to more recent versions (beginning of September)
   o xrootd procedures
      o restart of servers (deployment of new versions)
      o problems with particular data servers
      o adding a new server
   o ganglia/monitoring of kanNNN servers at SLAC - Yemi
      o metrics for staging?
      o monitoring of scratch area, etc.
      o adding back xrootd metrics (was waiting for restart)
      o Updates to presentation
      o alarms?
      o monitoring of #file descriptors/TCP connections, etc.
      o monitoring of xrootd versions and alarms when they fail the "Sesame
        Street test" (Should be possible after yesterday's restart) 
      o renaming of servers during/after shutdown (arrghh!)

  I have almost certainly forgotten some things, so please feel free to bring 
anything important up during the meeting.
