glite-LB - Updated to version 3.2.12-11

Normal priority update
Released on Update 30 (28/06/2011)

Description (See the patch #4623)

What's new

This release of L&B 2.1.21 introduces several hotfixes, namely to job registration and event delivery initiated by WMS, and also fixes several bugs that were affecting the interlogger under non-standard conditions (disk full, long-term inactivity, etc.).

Installation and Configuration

glite-LB metapackage is installed by yum. yaim configuration requires, at the very least, setting MYSQL_PASSWORD, SITE_NAME and SITE_EMAIL in the site-info.def file.


Newer versions of certain packages are required, compared to the previous release of L&B 2.1.18. There are no new dependencies.

Known issues

Due to faulty DNS over IPv6 resolution in the c-ares library, L&B does not work in most scenarios involving IPv6-only machines. Upgrade c-ares to 1.7.3 and relaunch yaim to get full IPv6 functionality.

Dependent Patches

There are no dependent patches.

Fixed Bugs

#71311 interlogd should access /tmp/interlogger.sock regularly
#77366 edg_wll_DoLogEventServer() should read any reply only once
#77365 wrong categorization of errors at interlog--bkserver interface
#77357 LB locallogger and bkserverd startup scripts should remove stale sockets
#78560 Wrong default for GLITE_LB_EXPORT_PURGE_ARGS
