I don't follow sports very much. But it's been such an active last month for all corners of the sports world that it's almost impossible not to pay attention to some of it.

As many of you probably noticed, the system was extremely slow this afternoon (Wednesday, June 17) starting at around 12:30PM. We have narrowed things down to a set of Course Reserve database queries that originated through VuFind from one member library. We killed those queries at 3PM and the system recovered immediately.

We do not know exactly what is causing this yet, but we now know what to look for and which queries to kill. We will need to do more analysis on the queries before we find a permanent solution.

This morning at 2:53AM, the Universal Catalog database stopped responding. The new Oracle version has a parameter that limits the amount of data that can be written to Archive Logs to 10GB. We have increased that setting for all databases and will monitor it to see if it should be increaed further. After making that change, the Universal Catalog started working again at 8:53AM this morning.

This morning we are seeing Oracle issues affecting the display of holdings in I-Share. Searching is not affected. We are actively investigating this issue.

A change made at 5PM had unintended consequences that didn't really manifest until about 7PM tonight. There were so many processes backed up waiting to run that we eventually had to take most systems offline to implement a fix.

We still have more tuning that needs to be done, but hopefully those changes will be scheduled on Sunday mornings from now on.

We have also put in place the threshold changes we were planning to make at 11PM, so there will be no need for another outage tonight.

We see some serious performance problems that are affecting Voyager, VuFind, and WebVoyage.

We have started investigating and will attempt to determine the cause and stabilize the system.

We have found a threshold in Oracle that needs to be increased for some libraries. Unfortunately, this change requires a restart.

At 11PM tonight (Tuesday, June 16th), we will take Voyager down, make the Oracle changes, and then bring Voyager back online. We estimate about a half-hour of downtime for this process.
