T5.1 iMarine Data e-Infrastructure Operation

CERN Activities

CERN was involved in the investigation of production incident tickets related to Search and process Execution. In addition the scheduled downtime at CNR ( described in the deviation part) has requested CERN to perform some service restart and check the status of the infrastructure.

A new version of the GHN distribution ( maven based) was finalized and released for gCube 2.12.0

CNR Activities

We had a scheduled downtime from Saturday 11th to monday 13th, due to a complex maintenance of the power network in the server room. This required the full restart of all the infrastructure.

T5.2 iMarine Data e-Infrastructure Nodes Provision

CNR Activities

  • CNR has been keeping up and running the provided nodes hosting GHNs, UMD and project management services.
  • It has been implemented a new architecture of the connections between the hosts and the data on the storage servers that has improved at the same time performance, safety and scalability.
  • Two new nodes for the cassandra cluster production.
  • node31.p.d4science e node55.p.d4science upgraded with 1 more GB of RAM to run external scripts to evaluate the performance of PE2ng in the production environment.

Full restart of the infrastructure due to power network cut.

NKUA Activities

NKUA has been keeping up and running the provided nodes hosting GHNs, UMD and the gcube wiki. Any issues have been resolved immediately. At this period NKUA had a scheduled downtime on Sunday 13th of January, due to power network maintenance. Additionally during this month we extended the functionality of gcube wiki by installing XML2Wiki component.


  • Added XML2Wiki extension to gcube wiki.
