Performance Issues of PLoS Websites

We’re continuing to experience slowness and intermittent downtime for the websites hosted on Topaz. At this time, the priorities for the IT and Topaz teams are to improve stability of the Topaz applications and increase the performance of the web sites.

The IT and Topaz teams are digging through many system files, configuration settings and code to improve the situation but it may take one or two weeks before we overcome the performance issues. Please bear with us as during this time as we make additional tweaks/upgrades to improve performance.

Hopefully we’ll address these issues quickly so that our users can enjoy the journal websites.
