 Mayo/JasonWe have run into multiple issues where the performance on the DEV tier has be a problem due to Mayo not being able to replicate the slow points due to the drastic difference in DEV resources.  We discuss this with the systems team and they requested us to put in a DRT ticket that provides the specs to match the Mayo DEV server.08/30/13 7/16/2014A new development server has been procured and is currently being setup.  This AI will be closed.


Area of InterestDetails
LexEVS 6.2

Had class loading issues with the redeployment of the CTS2 Services.  Made a copy of the corrected configuration and made configuration properties file that can be used for future deployments.  This is noted in the PTE now.

We have been noticing some strange behavior with the last version of LexEVS.  This has mostly been found through testing of the Term Browser.  Scott thinks this could be a indexing issue.  Tracy started re-indexing last night but received an error that there were “too many open files”.  This is a configuration setting to fix.  Jacob will find the setting, correct it, and send a note to Scott so he can add it to the PTE.

The URI Resolver passed the QA AppScan with no high or medium vulnerabilities.  Scott is also looking at the large amount of low vulnerabilities.

Report WriterPut in DRT ticket for DEV tier setup for Report Writer 2.1 environment. 
Term Browser 

There were several data discrepancy issues that we believe are due to the indexing issue.  Tin will retest once the re-indexing is completed.

Performed trouble-shooting on the Term Browser Home page formatting issue. The extra blank lines were found to be related to inconsistent metadata value assigned to NCI Thesaurus. Added fault-tolerance to accommodate metadata display name naming variation.

The containers are still being worked on for the new development environment.

NCIm Browser

The Metathesaurus 2.5 container is now ready and the AHP setup has been completed.  However, there was an issue where the CM team was pulling code from the wrong repository (NCIP instead of EVS) which caused issues.  The CM team is making the update to the correct Git repository.

 7/17/2014Deployment of software, even small upgrades, have been a lengthy process.This especially affects smaller releases in which there are security or bug fixes. The Agile practices migration have been put on hold for now.
 09/10/2014Getting the environment in place for the Mayo trip to NCI.Need to get each of the environment (DEV,QA,Stage) in place before the Mayo trip on September 22nd.  We are currently one week behind.  The impact is that the Mayo developer will be onsite to work on the deployments and the tiers will not be in place. Currently we only have the DEV environment setup for the LexEVS API>
