Serveral users have recently reported slow response from the Corporate Time server. During the course of our investigation of the problem, several orphaned ssh process were found on Big Ben and the log files were found to be quite large.
The orphaned processes were dealt with at 16:00 PST. The Corporate Time service was stopped at approximately 20:30 PST. The log files were rotated and the service restarted. The University web server was restarted to allow users to access the Corporate Time web interface.
