There was a minor problem with our proxy load balancer hence sluggish Internet this morning. Our proxy admins are resolving the situation. We apologize for this inconvenience.
NOTICE: We are commencing our day-long downtime today. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Our proxy admins have just informed us that the Dormproxy will have some optimization tests occurring tonight. This will involve some newer proxy versions in the cluster. Kindly do give us your feedback (slow/no Internet, which sites are accessible, etc.). The more exhaustive your feedback is, the better for us to gather data in order to improve dormproxy performance and tweak them further. Thank you!
Good evening, We have been informed by our proxy team that they have been performing optimizations to the dormproxy since last Thursday evening, hence some problems cropping as of last night. Please give us your feedback if there are any problems tonight as well, as continuing to use the proxies will help us gather more data on what needs to be worked on. Again, we apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused for the dormproxy users – the optimizations are to prepare for the additional dormproxy servers in our cluster as well as additional bandwidth coming soon for the University. Thank you for your understanding!
