dCache server v. 2.10.39

Affected services

  • affected service: dCache server

What's new:

  • Executive summary:
    • Improved SRM scheduling and protection of other components.
    • Reimplemented webadmin active transfers page.
    • Improved support for HTTP and HTTPS 3rd-party transfers.
    • Added support for 3rd-party transfers through WebDAV.
    • Improved support for HTTP 3rd-party transfers through SRM.
    • Improved default HTML rendering in WebDAV.
    • Added JSON support for info.
  • Incompatibilities
    • The NFS namespace cache configuration parameter nfs.namespace-cache.unit is renamed to nfs.namespace-cache.time.unit; this makes it compliant with dCache configuration guidelines.
    • Kerberos uses values in /etc/krb5.conf by default. If both kerberos.realm and kerberos.key-distribution-center-list are set then custom values are used.
    • In billing log files, transfer-specific information is written as a colon-separated list of items. For HTTP and xrootd, the format has changed, with a colon now separating the protocol version information and the client IP address. The output for HTTP and xrootd is now consistent with information recorded for other protocol transfers.
