ATLAS. Notable in the ATLAS requests there are increases in the requests for CPU at T0 and T2s and a decrease in the request for disk at T2s. ATLAS explains that the CPU increase at T0 is caused by better knowledge about Run-2 data, the performance of the software and its behavior on multiprocessor architectures, previous estimates have been too optimistic. The CPU growth at T2s is explained with the need for additional power for the upgrade simulation as well as an unanticipated high use of full simulation and event generation. The reduction of T2 disk request is based on two observations: a lower number of events produced by fast simulation and a wish to consolidate storage only in big sites.The wish to consolidate data resulted in a request that T2-sites below 400TB of disk invest in CPU rather than disk. We have expressed concerns about this strategy as this might not fit with the funding schemes of the T2 sites. ATLAS note that the scheme will be implemented gradually and in concert with the funding agencies.The T0 CPU resources have been reduced in agreement with ATLAS. The original request was motivated by the large memory (>2GB/core) necessary for event reconstruction. The extra 83 kHS06 will, hopefully, not needed thanks to better performances of the delivered hardware to CERN and the optimisations in the ATLAS workflows. The HLT farm, that contributed with 42 kHS06 to CPU resources has not been included in the CPU pledged resources therefore, we propose to lower the CPU requests at T1.ATLAS expects to continue their large use of beyond-pledge CPU resources for full simulation and though ATLAS is quite certain that such resources continue to be available, CRSG continues to be concerned about the reliance on such resources.Table 14 shows the latest ATLAS computing requests for 2017 and 2018 along with the current resource pledges and the CRSG recommendations.
