As posted earlier, this morning IITS attempted to fully restore the calendar’s default functionality to the Cougar Courses main page. For the first two hours there were no issues, but at 9am the database once again became overloaded with calendar database queries. In order to return Cougar Courses to a stable and responsive state, we pulled the calendar back to our prior status with it available via the menu links.
For additional background, the issue is related to the rendering of the calendar view as it initiates queries that put an inordinate load on the database. As the main page is accessed almost continuously throughout the day, the load is unsustainable. By calling the calendar only when selected, we substantially reduce the number of times this occurs.
Based upon last week’s results we were fully expecting that today would be successful and we are very disappointed by the outcome. Given the inconveniences this semester, we will hold any further attempts at changing the setup until the break and additional changes will be evaluated at that time.
This will be the final update for this thread.
