Resolved - The work-around has resulted in better than expected performance with all Footprints workspaces being able to keep up with incoming emails. We are marking this incident as "Resolved" for now but will continue to work with the vendor to find a longer term solution.
Dec 5, 16:18 EST
Monitoring - A work-around has been implemented to allow Footprints to better keep up with the processing of incoming emails. Although we expect to see delays once it gets busy we are estimating they will be less than 30 minutes as opposed to the 2-3 hours we've been seeing the past 2 days. We continue to work with the vendor support/developer in order to find a proper fix and will update later today. Once again, thank you for your patience and understanding.
Dec 5, 09:21 EST
Update - All workspaces have caught up on email intake for now but will most likely fall behind again once volume picks up tomorrow. The issue has now been escalated to a developer who will be available Thursday morning. We will continue to investigate and trouble-shoot at that time.
Dec 4, 17:41 EST
Update - All attempted fixes have provided only marginal improvement meaning that we are still about 2 hours behind in the processing of emails in Footprints. We continue to work with the vendor to determine the root issue. Once again, thank you for your patience.
Dec 4, 14:51 EST
Identified - In consultation with vendor support we will be making a configuration change then restarting the Footprints server. It will be unavailable from approximately 12:15-12:30pm. We will provide an update after we have observed the results of the restart. Thank you for your patience.
Dec 4, 11:40 EST
Investigating - Unfortunately, the issue does seem to be load related as we again are having slowness issues beginning at 9:00am when email requests started arriving in earnest. We are re-engaging with vendor support to continue trouble-shooting. In the meantime, if you have urgent requests and have not received a ticket notification email please call the Help Centre at ext 58888.
Dec 4, 09:33 EST
Monitoring - In consultation with vendor support we have implemented a configuration change to reduce the email processing time. Although it appears to have helped we cannot be sure to what degree as it is now a "quiet time" with no new tickets coming into any workspace and therefore very little system contention. We will continue to monitor performance as the business day picks up again Wednesday.
Dec 3, 18:59 EST
Investigating - Footprints is currently processing incoming email very slowly (45-90 minutes instead of the usual 2-4 minutes). This results in longer than usual response times to Help Centre tickets. If your request is urgent and you have not received a ticket notification message please call the Help Centre at ext 58888.

All other Footprints work spaces are less impacted with delays between 5-10 minutes. We have involved vendor support and continue to investigate.

Resolved - This incident was resolved shortly after opening, but erroneously this incident was not closed in Statuspage.io
Dec 2, 16:41 EST
Update - We are continuing to monitor for any further issues.
Nov 28, 12:49 EST
Monitoring - A configuration change, suggested by the vendor, has been made to the Qualtrics/Online Surveys authentication workflow that will hopefully resolve the login issues that have been ongoing this week. CCS is monitoring the service and will post another update once we can confirm this configuration change has resolved all login issues.

If anyone continues to have login problems, please contact the CCS Help Centre at 58888help@uoguelph.ca or 519-824-4120 Ext 58888.
Oct 9, 11:47 EDT
Investigating - The Online Surveys/Qualtrics service is experiencing intermittent login issues. While most users can login to the service, some users are unable to login and they receive the following error:

"We were unable to validate your request. A report is generated with error tag []."

In some cases clearing the browser cache and cookies or restarting the computer resolves the issue.

CCS and the Library's Data Resource Centre (DRC) are working with the vendor, Qualtrics, to resolve the issue. Currently the root cause is not known and there is no ETA on a resolution. We will provide further updates as they become available.

Resolved - The issue affecting Maestro and ListServ has been resolved, and most mail posted to ListServ or Maestro has been sent out successfully. Both Maestro and ListServ are now operating normally.

Nov 29, 15:52 EST
Monitoring - We have made progress towards issue resolution with Listserv and Maestro. There is a backlog of message which are being distributed. Some further work is required but we expect service to return to normal in approximately an hour.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Scheduled - The University’s Adobe Connect Pro agreement will be ending August 26, 2019.

What impact will this have?
An effort has been made by CCS over the past year to contact departments still using Adobe Connect Pro to ensure that they have plans for migration to another platform. After the agreement ends current users of Adobe Connect Pro who have not contacted CCS because of circumstances that require them to extend their accounts past August 26, 2019 will no longer be able to create new meetings in Adobe Connect Pro. Recorded meetings will still be available for viewing.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this please contact the CCS Help Centre at IThelp@uoguelph.ca or extension 58888.
