APEL Client/Server 1.8.0
APEL is an accounting tool that collects accounting data from sites participating in the EGI and WLCG infrastructures as well as from sites belonging to other Grid organisations that are collaborating with EGI, including OSG, NorduGrid and INFN. The accounting information is gathered from different sensors into a central accounting database where it is processed to generate statistical summaries that are available through the EGI/WLCG Accounting Portal. Statistics are available for view in different detail by Users, VO Managers, Site Administrators and anonymous users according to well defined access rights. More information on the APEL page. Release notes:
- [client] Added warning in log if no records are unloaded during a run.
- [parsers] Added optional ’cputmult’ factor to HTCondor parser to support its use as a parser for HTCondorCE set ups.
- [server] Added PID/process check to summariser to prevent overlapping runs.
