This document is a brief discussion of the Resource Maintenance Tool in OIM
Introduction to the OIM Scheduled Maintenance Tool
The OSG Information Management (OIM)
project has implemented a scheduled maintenance tool. It is important for OSG Users and Operations to have accurate records for scheduled resource maintenance times. This will help users schedule jobs and operations to accurately calculate reports and not penalize resources for routine scheduled maintenance.
You will only be able to schedule maintenance for registered resources if you are listed as an administrator of that resource in OIM
NOTE: To access the OIM system you will need to have a valid OSG approved certificate loaded into your browser.
To access the maintenance records for your resource follow the OIM menu. Registrations -> Resources -> Your Resources -> Resource Name -> Maintenance
. This will show you all current maintenance records for the Resource Name
you have selected.
To add a new maintenance window click on the Add Maintenance
From the page you will choose the service that will be out (ie. Compute Element, SRM V1 Storage Element...), the Severity based on the outage time you expect (Outage, Intermittent Outage, No Outage Expected), the Start and End time of the maintenance in UTC/GMT, and a description of the maintenance.
When this information is entered click the Add Maintenance
link to submit the window.
Your maintenance record should now show in the Registrations -> Resources -> Your Resources -> Resource Name -> Maintenance
Click Cancel Maintenance
on the maintenance window you would like to delete from the Registrations -> Resources -> Your Resources -> Resource Name ->Maintenance
Confirm you would like to cancel this maintenance by clicking Yes
