 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.

We have received approval to deploy the 2.5 release to Stage. 

Deployed the 2.6 release to the DEV environment.  Need a firewall exception for the EVS ftp site to be fully operational.

Developed a test program for diagnosing the cause of the failure of mapping search on the DEV tier. It was concluded that the API would throw exceptions when the browser is set to run under the remote mode.

  • Implemented a temporary solution by configuring the browser to run on local mode instead.
  • The Mayo team was able to reproduce the failure.  


Developed a test program for testing the new tree extension jar and lexbig.jar released by the Mayo team.

  • The preliminary testing results show that the API no longer throws exceptions when the focus node is set to a concept with a code that is shared among multiple namespaces.
  • Will perform more thorough testing by examining the actual JSON strings returned by the tree extension API.

 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>
