QMP service “at risk”, Thursday 12 April, 8 am – noon

IT Services will be moving the secondary Questionmark Perception server to an improved installation on Thursday 12 April, between 8 am and noon. This means that the service will be relying on the primary server for that time, and hence it is to be regarded as an “at risk” period. We do not expect this process to have a significant effect on the service, although there may be a few brief outages.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact digital-education@bristol.ac.uk.

Brief QMP outage, 27 January, 3.15 pm

IT Services will be moving the server on which Questionmark Perception is located, in the afternoon of Wednesday 27 January. During the move, QMP will be available on a virtual server. Users should not notice any change, except for possibly a brief outage as the service is switched between the physical and virtual server at 3.15 pm, and a similar outage when it is switched back, which should occur at around 3.45 pm. There should be no significant effect on any activity taking place on Questionmark Perception, but the period between 3.15 and 4 pm should be considered an “at risk” period.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
