Responsible Unit: ARC SUPPORT UNIT

Helpdesk: ARC

What is the purpose of the ARC Support?

Within the European Middleware Initiative user support for ARC components is done through GGUS support units. This support unit is taking care of ARC components developed and maintained within EMI, namely: ARC compute element and clients, including security utilities, container, corresponding information system components and the GridFTP server, as well as corresponding libraries. This support unit is part of third level user support (EMI). It processes incoming tickets by analysing them and assigning it to the respective section in ARC bug tracker, or re-assigning it to the EMI support unit for further processing.
