Liverpool Weekly Update

This week's work at Liverpool was mostly a continuation of last week's - more networking as we bring the new firewall/router into operation, and more Nagios and Ganglia tweaking as we add more systems and services to the monitoring.

Plans to add a second 1Gbps link from our cluster room to Computing Services to create a combined 2Gbps link, along with an additional third 1Gbps link to a different building for resilience, have taken a step forward. A detailed proposal for for this has now been agreed with Computing Services and funding approved.

Alessandra made a useful visit yesterday, providing help with adding additional VOs (which is being done today, all going well) and investigating problems with ATLAS software installation amongst other things.
