Spring Semester Start–D2L Performance

Posted by Plamen Miltenoff on January 6, 2014

Spring Semester Start–D2L Performance 

Our number one priority during spring semester start is system performance, which we will be monitoring closely. As always, we advise that faculty perform course copying and exporting/importing prior to the first week of classes.  If any system wide performance issues occur, we may need to ask users to avoid certain activities during high usage periods.

If you or your users need to report slow performance issues, please gather all relevant information and include it in the ticket.  It may be helpful to send this list of pertinent details to your faculty in advance, so they are aware of the information we need to replicate and diagnose issues to determine the source of the problem.

Please include this information when reporting D2L performance issues.
