2009/06/28 - Internet Quota System Adjustments (june/july Vac)
Each long vacation we make adjustments to the demand side management scale factors of the University's Internet quota system. These adjustments are intended to allow those staff and students who remain in town to make more effective use of the Internet bandwidth that's available at these times.

This vacation, we'll be making such adjustments between Sunday 28 June 2009 and Sunday 26 July 2009 (inclusive). From today the following scale factors apply:
  • 08:0022:59 a scale factor of 0.75
  • 23:0007:59 normal term time values (23:0000:59: 0.2, 01:0007:59: 0.04)
For details of how to interpret these values see http://www.ru.ac.za/quota/dsm.

During the course of the vacation, we're likely to make further adjustments (either up or down) depending on the absolute demand on the University's Internet bandwidth. Any adjustments that reduce the Internet quota available to users will be posted to this noticeboard topic in advanced. You are encouraged to check here for up-to-date information rather than making assumptions.
Effective immediately, the scale factor for the 08:0022:59 vacation time slot has been changed to 0.5.
Effective immediately, the scale factor for the 08:0022:59 vacation time slot has been changed to 0.2. This will likely revert to the previously published value of 0.75 on Saturday 25 July.
