Agile development and DevOps

  1. slack channel:

/Localstore policy

Here is a set of simple rules to keep the local disks healthy and clean.
This is especially important to avoid unexpected disk fills (on piedra above all).

  1. nothing valuable should be kept on any machine's localstore!
  2. developers have their folder under /localstore/developer_name
    • every developer should try to keep his/her folder clean
  3. guests should have a folder created under /localstore/daqmustud/guest_name
  4. students should have their own folder /localstore/student_name
  5. FELIX tests with tools like fdaq should (must) be run in /localstore/felix_tests/
    • again valuable results should be moved right away
    • this folder should get wiped once a month or two
  6. all other folders should be deleted once a year (say before Christmas)
