> Short Version:
> The MTT development group is rolling out newly optimized web frontend
> and backend database. As a result we will be taking down the MTT site
> at IU Monday, August 27 from 8 am to Noon US eastern time.
> During this time you will not be able to submit data to the MTT
> database. Therefore you need to disable any runs that will report
> during this time or your client will fail with unable to connect to
> server messages.
> This change does not affect the client configurations, so MTT users
> do *not* need to update their clients at this time.
> Longer Version:
> The MTT development team has been working diligently on server side
> optimizations over the past few months. This work involved major
> changes to the database schema, web reporter, and web submit
> components of the server.
> We want to roll out the new server side optimizations on Monday, Aug.
> 27. Given the extensive nature of the improvements the MTT server
> will need to be taken down for a few hours for this upgrade to take
> place. We are planning on taking down the MTT server at 8 am and
> we hope to have it back by Noon US Eastern time.
> MTT users that would normally submit results during this time range
> will need to disable their runs, or they will see server error
> messages during this outage.
> This upgrade does not require any client changes, so outside of the
> down time contributors need not change or upgrade their MTT
> Below are a few rough performance numbers illustrating the difference
> between the old and new server versions as seen by the reporter.
