Welcome home lhcb pilot!

There is not much to say besides we are happy to see that the sometimes shy LHCb pilot jobs are back running at PIC since last midnight.
There was quite a while since we did not see these guys consuming CPU cycles at PIC, so they were starting with their full Fair Share budget. Interesting to see that in these conditions they were able to peak to 400 jobs quite fast and in about 6 hours they had already crossed their Fair Share red line.
I hear that ATLAS is about to launch another reprocessing campaign, so they will be asking for their Fair Share in a short time... I hope to see the LHCb load stabilizing at their share at some point, otherwise I will start suspecting they have some problem with us :-)
