jEdit/DMG plugin update:  While Mac client prototypes are quite promising, testing of prototype solutions has turned up a problem for Windows clients.  Stewards continue development, but the timeframe for delivery is unknown at this point.

The next update will be 4:00 PM on Wednesday 8/27, or earlier if we have more information.

Again, developers can still upload webAgent scripts via the DMG web interface.

We have contacted business stakeholders and determined that no business processes have been affected by the loss of this code editor plugin.  If your area has seen significant impact to your business processes and the use of the DMG web interface is not a sufficient workaround, please contact me and the admins at jedit-admin@utlists.utexas.edu.

jEdit/DMG plugin update: Systems staff continue to work on the jEdit plugin issue and are in contact with external groups who have useful expertise.
Developers can still upload webAgent scripts via the DMG web interface, so there has been a fully functional workaround available throughout.


9:38 AM
jEdit/DMG plugin update: The problem is at a much lower level than anticipated and will take serious analysis and perhaps development work for final remediation.
Please continue to use the web interface for uploads.


9:20 AM
Despite thorough testing, we have discovered an issue with the jEdit plugin for DMG this morning.
The workaround for webagent development is to use the DMG web interface (https://dpdev1.dp.utexas.edu/cgi-bin/dmg/index.cgi) to upload your webAgent scripts from your desktop.
Systems staff are investigating the issue.

RESOLVED: Canvas Running in Degraded Status
Service Restored

2:58 PM Aug 26, 2014
We took a range of steps to address the slowness some users experienced in Canvas yesterday. About 15% of Canvas users were impacted at some point in the day. We addressed several root-cause issues that should result in improved performance for affected users today.

Canvas Status Update

Urgent maintenance complete

The urgent maintenance event announced earlier is complete. Users can now access and use Canvas again.

Thanks,
Canvas Support

Canvas Status Update
Brief (less than 5 minutes) urgent maintenance event overnight

Starting at about 2:00 AM Eastern Time (1:00 AM Central Time) this morning, we will perform a series of very brief urgent maintenance events. Your users will be unable to access Canvas for about five minutes between 2:00 AM ET and 4:00 AM ET (1:00 AM and 3:00 AM Central Time). We will send you a notice when the event affecting your instance is complete.

The purpose of this event is to bring upgraded hardware online to serve your instance of Canvas. A small percentage of Canvas users experienced slowness in the application at points today; this is a preventative step to ensure that performance is normal for all users as usage increases.

Thanks for all you do to serve your users! It’s a privilege to work with you.

As of 11:00 am today Canvas has been running slowly and is now confirmed to be running in degraded status. This impacts all canvas users.
