Blackboard 8 Update


At the recommendation of the technical team from Blackboard, Sun Microsystems, Oracle and Cisco we are presently configuring the Blackboard 8 application environment with advanced tools for database and server logging and activity tracing to gather fine grained diagnostic information. When this configuration is complete we will bring the application back into production and make it available to CUNY end-users.
Please be aware that this is not a problem resolution but a necessary advanced diagnostic step that must occur under production load. We anticipate that the system will once again become degraded but cannot estimate the actual timing.

We will work to keep you informed as the day progresses.
