Updates of Dashboard Tool

A session at Open Apereo 2013 Conference (Jasig & Sakai)

Monday 3rd June, 2013

3:45pm to 4:30pm (PST)

The presentation will give an update on the current status of Dashboard tool, covering the following three areas:

1. The load test result and performance enhancement: Dashboard tool has been introduced in 2012 and received great interest within the Sakai Community. Columbia University has run the tool since spring 2012, but had to take the tool offline in Fall, due to serious database contention problem. Dashboard team has been working to address the performance problem. UMich has also run the dashboard load test in the cluster environment with the following settings: (1) Sakai 2.9 baseline; (2) Sakai 2.9 with Dashboard service thread turned on; (3) Sakai 2.9 with active Dashboard tool usage. We will compare and summarize the results for those three scenarios, and provide insights for future tool improvement and adoption.

2. Mobile Dashboard Project: Typical use cases of the Sakai Dashboard tool fits nicely into the mobile device paradigm.  With this in mind, the University of Michigan is in the midst of refining the Dashboard's mobile interface.  The project has sought continuous user feedback, starting with requirements for presentation, then in refining the interface.  We will talk about the data used to guide the project and show some of the work in progress.

3. Longsight’s contribution to Dashboard tool: A quick overview of dashboard internal processing highlighting on recent inclusions relating to out of cluster background processing and aggregating older actions to the dashboard.
