XSEDE Resource Status - Adding Resources

Making a resource show up

A Service Provider must do the following for a resource to show up:

  1. Obtain "Admin for Organization" access to the Resource Description Repository "RDR" (see the RDR User Guide).
  2. Define an RDR Resource with:
    • Project Affiliation is "XSEDE"
    • Status (**) is one of Friendly, Coming Soon, Pre-Production, Production, or Post-Production
  3. Define at least one RDR Sub-Resource of the above RDR Resource with:
    • Type is "compute" or "storage"
    • Status (**) is one of Friendly, Coming Soon, Pre-Production, Production, or Post-Production

(**) The RDR Resource and Sub-Resource Status is based on whether the current date falls between the a Status Begin Date and End Date. When a resource has multiple statuses, if any of them are in the above list the resource will show up.

All XSEDE registered resources from all SP Levels (1, 2, or 3) are shows whether allocated or not.

Once these steps are complete the resource should show up on XCSR Resource Status pages within 15 minutes. 

Where the status information comes from

Production (Declared) Status comes from RDR dates and described above.

Publishing Status comes from the Information Publishing Framework "IPF" component used by SP administrators to publish dynamic resource information.
