20 Aug - database performance issues

alert

[20 August 2014]

Update 29 August 16:00

There have been further substantial improvements to database performance following additional work this afternoon. We will continue to monitor performance over the weekend and early next week. Online registration processes are progressing well and have not been affected by performance issues.

original story: We are experiencing performance issues with databases that support the Student, Admissions and Finance teams (SIPROD, CPROD, PROD). These issues have caused some significant problems for the work of those teams, with jobs taking longer than usual to run. We are in communication with Finance, Admissions and SSIO regarding the applications that are affected.
