[AI]  (Chris)  Chad Redman 2/22: 2 issues: The source ID drop down list doesn't really show the "IDs" Also order seems random, so it takes a while to find the right source.

[AI] (Bert) 2/27: Paul Engle, I was excited when the grouper_loader_log seemed to indicate that the job finished in an hour or so. Less so once I looked at the log and realized it was actually still running its worker threads... :

Discussion

Current work tasks

Vivek – Attestation
Misagh – on hold


Chris – loader in UI , deprovisioning (https://spaces.internet2.edu/display/Grouper/Grouper+deprovisioning), patches

Bert – PSPNG

  • Changelog consumers can report inserts/deletes/unresolvable subjects, etc for each batch
  • Working on groups that require members and testing that.
  • Groups without members get created at last second and deleted when empty.
  • Handling of fake members is part of this.
  • Will be a patch.

GRP-1376 - Groups that require members
[AI] Bert will create wiki page on the Groups that require members work-  GRP-1376

Shilen – instrumentation 

https://spaces.internet2.edu/display/Grouper/Grouper+instrumentation

  • Hope that Shib will collect data using similar format.
  • Show on Grouper UI the data that’s collected and sent to TIER? Seems reasonable.
  • Defaults are for collection increments to be hourly and database flushing also hourly.
  • TIER Daemon would be daily.  By default 30 days worth would be kept in database.  
  • These specs would be configurable.
  • End time or duration for each row would be helpful.
  • Could start this collection process within Grouper until such time as TIER is ready to consume.
  • Adding the instrumentation data to the new Grouper UI would be very helpful. Will go in this direction.

[AI] (Chris) will look at grouper-misc tier instrumentation collector and then  share with Shilen the Grouper instrumentation work that Chris  initiated.  

[AI] (Chris) ask about TIER collector production in March 8, 2017 TIER Component architects call.

[AI] (Shilen) add to instrumentation wiki steps for adding a new count (such as for provisioning data)

Note that Grouper Loader Log table in database also tracks this provisioning data.  Useful to track this. TIER collector could mine this data and report it

GrouperLoaderType.java
     hib3GrouploaderLog.setInsertCount(subjectsToAdd.size());
     hib3GrouploaderLog.setDeleteCount(membersToRemove.size());
     hib3GrouploaderLog.setStatus(status.name());
     //take out the job status
     hib3GrouploaderLog.setJobMessage(jobMessage.toString());
