Web Tools Maintenance and New Releases

The Catalyst Web Tools currently log more than 24,000 user sessions each day, a 25% increase over the same time period last year. Additionally, we release software, new features, and enhancements on a weekly basis. To ensure a consistently high level of performance while we meet these demands, our software engineers must occasionally take the tools offline. In order for this process to occur as smoothly as possible, the Web Tools are currently offline and will be back online at 7:00 p.m. PT. This means that Catalyst Web Tools are unavailable to all users, including both owners and participants.

We realize that this may pose a slight inconvenience to some users, but we are confident that it will improve user experience overall. The tradeoff is that with no users connected, maintenance and releases can happen quickly, ensuring that access to fast, enhanced Web Tools is available at all other times.

If you have questions or concerns, please send an email to catalysthelp@uw.edu.
