Goals of the Open Science Grid Site Administrators Meeting
We will strive to have plenty of time built in to have discussions, not just talks. This is essential. Please come prepared to participate in the discussions, not just listen to people talking.
We would like to have a forum for sites to share cool tips on how
they built their site. How did you get NFS to scale across your
1000 node cluster? How did you use splunk to find why your CE
crashed at 11:53 every morning? Should everyone drop their batch
system in preference for GNU queue? These topics may or may not
be specific to OSG and grid computing, but do apply to common
problems that sites might have.
There just isn't time for all of these wonderful talks. If we
have at least 4 people interested, we'll have a session on Monday
for lightning talks.
Lighting talks will be limited to five minutes, including Q&A. NO

onto a computer we will provide.

- Make a point that can stick in someone's head
- Generate discussions that can be held later (dinner, breaks,
If we have sufficient interest from people wanting to give a
lightning talk, we'll re-arrange the schedule to do them. Let us
know if you're interested.
