Dear dCache community,
The dCache Golden Release 1.9.5 is available for download and testing. This release is meant to be maintained throughout the entire first round of LHC data taking. For details on new features and improvements checkout the 1.9.5 Release Notes.
The system has passed our functional tests.
However, doing intensive stress testing, NDGF found a dead-lock in
the SRM front end on high load on this component. Work is ongoing to
get this issue fixed very soon. The problem is manifesting itself
by an increased number of CLOSE_WAITs in netstat followed by a
complete stop of the SRM functionality.
Nevertheless we would encourage sites to install this release on their test system(s), simulating their productions system(s) setup as closely as possible, and provide feedback on unexpected behaviours to get the release production ready as fast as possible.
We keep you updated on any progress
your dCache team
