Computer Network Bottleneck Tuesday Night
Fermilab's primary off-site computer network link will be temporarily
shifted to a much lower bandwidth cable Tuesday night through Wednesday
morning, reducing network performance by as much as 75 percent through the
night. Between 5:30 p.m. Tuesday and 7:00 a.m. Wednesday, the link will be
re-routed because of construction work. There may also be a brief network
of about a minute during the cutover to and from the temporary cable link.
