Access to EECS home directories on home.eecs was particularly slow for a while this morning. For users with mail or browser profiles in their home directories, this may have prevented their mail client or browser programs from functioning normally.
Access to project.eecs does not appear to have been affected.
Staff are investigating the cause. The likely culprit are slowdowns from a new backup combined with replication.
The symptoms disappeared at 9:30am on Tuesday, Sep 09. More should be known about the root cause by 9am Wednesday.
