The holiday weekend kept traffic low, but quickly picked up Monday night through the rest of the week. Traffic increased this week 40% over the same time period last week with just over 800,000 additional page views.
The increased traffic had minimal if any effect on the overall performance of the system. The performance graphs look similar to the same period as last week, with the average server request time sill about 1/3 of a second.
We have been looking into various network latency issues that could be causing Faculty and Students problems while off campus. I’m working on some reports showing ISP performance against Blackboard as well as other University systems like myUK and Exchange. Once the initial rush settles down those numbers should be more reliable.
