The first beta of the next major version of perfSONAR 4.2.0 is now available. This is not a final release and should not be put on production systems. We are making it available for wider testing to help get it ready for a final release in the near future. A few highlights include:

  • A new pScheduler disk-to-disk test with support for a GridFTP and curl tool
  • pSConfig Web Administrator (PWA) RPMS
  • Support for perfSONAR Ansible roles
  • Support for task priorities in pScheduler
  • End of BWCTL backward compatibility support in pScheduler
  • Full release notes can be found here: https://www.perfsonar.net/release-notes/version-4-2-0b1/

Instructions for configuring your host to use the beta can be found here: http://docs.perfsonar.net/install_rcs.html. Note that the Debian packages are not quite yet available but will be soon. The RPMs and Toolkit ISOs are ready for testing though and details are at the link. If you have a dedicated tester that permanently points at staging, it may have already updated if it is running auto-updates.

perfSONAR pSConfig Web Admin in YouTube channel

Posted April 30, 2019 - permalink

Following  CI Brownbag talk series webinar run on April 26th about a new perfSONAR pSConfig Web Admin the Project team is pleased to announce the release of this webinar's recording on Project's YouTube channel.

This talk introduces pSConfig Web Admin (PWA), a web-based tool for managing pSConfig (formerly MeshConfig) hostgroups, testspecs, hosts, etc. PWA is a multi-user tool that allows you to manage your mesh configurations graphically, integrating with the Lookup Service, and optionally, collaborating with other users on these configs. Its output configs are generated dynamically, opening up flexibility not possible with static configs. Focus is on demonstrating the functionality of PWA, and basic usage. Deployment/configuration of the PWA tools is also be discussed.
