Helpdesk: GGUS (Operations Helpdesk by TPM)

What is the purpose of the USATLAS Support?

Cloud support team for USATLAS sites and operational issues

For which components does USATLAS provide support?

Tier-1 and Tier-2 sites. ATLAS has a separate distributed analysis support team (“DAST”) so we focus more on site issues related to Monte Carlo simulations, reprocessing, site issues, etc.

Which quality of service (QoS) will you provide?


Who will assign tickets to USATLAS Support?

Any ATLAS end users, developers and operational people.

Are tickets typically solved in USATLAS Support or reassigned elsewhere?

Depends. Cloud support will solve issues where possible, but in cases where site intervention is needed we will facilitate communications, follow-up on ticket status, etc.

Who is responsible for USATLAS Support?

Mark Sosebee

What documentation is available on USATLAS Support?

This still needs to be developed.

What is the usual "Type of Issue" for the tickets of USATLAS?
