LHCONE Architecture Meeting Notes from Artur

Present: Mike, Shawn, Dale, Edoardo, Ian, Roberto, Wenshui, Joe, Mambretti, Artur

 
Mike: in the process to implement access policy at BNL, taking a prefix list
and configure packet filters. Will start directly with the 3 production
subnets.
Same to be done for FNAL and SLAC.
 
Shawn: AGLT2 had a milestone to connect to LHCONE by end of May. Will
discuss with Dale/I2.
 
We need to formalise (agree and make public) the policy, Mike and Dale
will initiate it.
 
Ian: would like to test CANARIE VRF with I2 and ESnet. Initially just /32 of
the Perfsonar boxes at TRIUMF and/or Toronto. Then extend the prefix list.
This would make reasonable "standard procedures", given that the experiments
want have comparison of before and after [including a site in LHCONE].
 
Mike: would be useful to identify European PS instances which US sites can
test against. Shawn will help in this.
 
Roberto: The Geneva-Chicago circuit due to be delivered soon.
 
Joe: We need discussion on how to use all available paths (e.g. SURFnet,
GLORIAD, USLHCNet, ...). Artur will organize a separate discussion focused
on this issue.
 
Wenshui: ASGC is ready to connect to LHCONE at Starlight. Should be
straight forwards, Wenshui will agree on details with Joe and his team.
 
Dale: Status of point-to-point service definition?
Will put it on the agenda for the next meeting.
 
Ian asked about policy of failover from LHCOPN to LHCONE.
Edoardo: CERN cannot avoid it, since using same set of prefixes.
This is also true for TRIUMF, and probably most/all Tier1s.
Need to be aware of this feature.
 
At the last face-to-face meeting, we considered Oslo or Philadephia
as possible next venues for the LHCONE/LHCOPN meeting. Artur
will check with Lars re Oslo, while Eric did confirm Philadelphia is
possible.
 
Next meeting: Monday, June 4th, 16.30 CEST, 10.30 ET.
