Description of Problem
Over the past few days, some e-mail users have been experiencing significant delays in e-mail processing. These performance issues have been limited to the e-mail servers located at the St. Paul BioAgeng data center, and are the result of of disk failure in the e-mail storage array at that location. OIT engineers are working with the vendor to resolve this problem as quickly as possible and restore e-mail service to normal performance. This may take several hours, so some users may continue to experience performance issues throughout today.
In order to mitigate performance problems for all e-mail users, some of the larger active users on the St. Paul servers are being moved to servers at other locations. By moving these users, OIT is able to balance the demand more evenly across all email servers, thus increasing overall performance for all users. OIT will be closely monitoring performance today, and making adjustments as needed to optimize performance.
Updates to the status of e-mail performance will be posted to the System Status web page
