OSG Troubleshooting - BDII/GIP Validation at Site-Level

Currently, each individual site needs to publish GLUE Schema-based information by GIP in BDII. There is an online validation service (http://grow.its.uiowa.edu/osg-gip/) provided to tell whether a site has GIP configured properly and BDII functioning well. However, at site-level, system administrators often wish to validate whether their site has GIP configured properly to publish GLUE information in BDII. If not, they are often eager to know how to fix problems quickly. To address this situation, we are developing a site-level troubleshooting solution to diagnosing and validating GLUE Schema information. This solution can also be used to assist system administrators to take appropriate actions to fix concrete problems.
