Scheduled maintenance – 1st March

By

On Monday, March 1 at 7:30pm EST (see this in your time zone) we will be performing some scheduled maintenance on the Litmus testing system. Our website, all your previous tests, any published tests, and your account will remain available during this time, however new tests won’t be processed. This maintenance should last less than three hours.

We’re performing a major upgrade to our queue servers. This upgrade will solve—long term—the recent problems we’ve had. As a result, we will be able to horizontally scale our queue servers, enabling us to handle many times the current volume of tests. Our fast growth over the past few months has made this essential.

Thank you all for your patience over the last few weeks, where things have been running much slower than we’d like. I think you’ll be incredibly happy with the performance after this upgrade.
