DMPTool monthly report, Sept 2012


There was a service outage on September 19-20. The DMPTool service was unavailable from approximately 6:30pm on Sept 19 until 9am on Sept 20. Among other problems, we did not have adequate monitoring in place so that the data center staff was unaware of the problem. We have corrected this problem and now have 24/7 monitoring in place.
