More information on todays UW network woes

UW-IT is inves­ti­gat­ing new reports of packet loss and latency; this
appears to be a dif­fer­ent issue to the one tracked ear­lier in the week.
This is mostly affect­ing work­sta­tions on pri­vate (P172 or NAT
addresses). Engi­neers are inves­ti­gat­ing the problem.

An update will be pro­vided as soon as we have fur­ther information.

UPDATE: Intermittent delays accessing the Internet

Inter­mit­tent delays with some net­work traf­fic con­tin­ues. A small num­ber of
pack­ets (~1–4%) are expe­ri­enc­ing unusual delays of 400ms or more; the
nor­mal delay is 1ms.

The ven­dor is on-site and has sug­gested changes that should improve
per­for­mance. We are plan­ning on imple­ment­ing these change between 0500 and
0630 tomor­row (Thurs­day) morning.

We will pro­vide the next update at 9am tomorrow.

UPDATE: Intermittent delays accessing the Internet

Inter­mit­tent delays with some traf­fic to and from the UW cam­pus net­work
con­tinue. A small num­ber of pack­ets (1–4%) are expe­ri­enc­ing unusual delays
of 400ms or more (the nor­mal delay is 1ms). This morn­ings work
elim­i­nated the pos­si­bil­ity of a hard­ware issue in the 4545 data cen­ter.
Due to the crit­i­cal­ity of the equip­ment we are pro­ceed­ing method­i­cally and
with pur­pose to iso­late the cor­rect the prob­lem with­out caus­ing com­plete
dis­rup­tion to the cam­pus network.

UW-IT is con­tin­u­ing to trou­bleshoot this issue with the equip­ment ven­dor,
and will pro­vide a fur­ther update at 5pm

UPDATE– Intermittent delays accessing the Internet

UW-IT and the ven­dor have con­tin­ued to inves­ti­gate issues with one of the
cam­pus net­work secu­rity devices. In the mean­time, another cam­pus secu­rity
device is being pre­pared to receive this traf­fic. The tran­si­tion is
sched­uled in the 0500–0630 cam­pus main­te­nance win­dow tomor­row (1/15).

Faculty Work Planning database login should now work

There was a prob­lem with the fac­ulty Work Plan­ning data­base.  The first screen logged into was not receiv­ing the login infor­ma­tion and gen­er­at­ing errors when fac­ulty mem­bers attempted to make entries.

This prob­lem has now been resolved and fac­ulty mem­bers should be able to browse directly to any Work Plan­ning screen.  The link on the SEFS web­site and in a recent e-mail notice should now work.

If you expe­ri­ence any fur­ther prob­lem in Work Plan­ning, you can e-mail me at sefsweb@uw.edu.

Intermittent delays accessing the Internet

UW-IT is inves­ti­gat­ing a pos­si­ble issue with one of the cam­pus IPS devices
that may be caus­ing inter­mit­tent delays access­ing the Inter­net.
Trou­bleshoot­ing with the ven­dor is con­tin­u­ing today in an attempt to
iso­late and con­firm the issue.

Faculty Work Planning system experiencing login problem

Cur­rently, when log­ging in to the fac­ulty Work Plan­ning data­base, your login infor­ma­tion may not be received by the first screen you see.  There is a prob­lem with the ini­tial login, and I am work­ing on the problem.

You can work around this prob­lem by click­ing one of the other menu items avail­able in Work Plan­ning.  For exam­ple, click Research Plan­ning on the top menu, then return to what­ever screen you started on.  It doesn’t mat­ter which screen you choose — if you select a menu item the data­base will get your login infor­ma­tion.  The screen will be work­ing if you see your employee ID num­ber in the box at the upper right of the screen.

I will try to resolve this prob­lem today so that more fac­ulty are not affected dur­ing this Work Plan­ning period.
