Current Status

Investigation in Progress

Status Details

May 24: Starting tomorrow (5/25), bots will be blocked between 5am and 11am PDT (6 hours total), instead of between 5am and 5pm (12 hours total).

Our tech team is continuing to investigate system slowness affecting author and administrator tools, content updates, batch uploads, and logins. Our tech team has temporarily limited the access of bots to Digital Commons sites between 5am and 5pm PDT. This may impact some search engine crawlers and OAI harvesters.

Thank you for your patience. Please revisit this page for future updates. We will provide updates every weekday until the issue is resolved.

To report an issue, please contact your consultant, phone 510-665-1200, opt.2., or email 

Scheduled Maintenance

Scheduled maintenance windows typically occur on either the second or fourth Thursday of the month, starting at 4pm, Pacific. Most windows do not have noticeable impact upon visitors and administration. Occasionally the nature of the maintenance requires temporary impact, no more than two hours, upon services. When possible, affected services display a maintenance message, indicating the cause and estimated time to resolution.
