In order to help pin-point response time problems on Koha, we are asking libraries to record the problems. We are targeting the weeks of May 12 and May 19 to do this tracking. Here is how it will work.
1) You may use any browser, but if using Firefox, you may want to use the Lori add-on to track how long each transaction takes. Below is the link. Click the green Add to Firefox button and follow the directions.
In order to get Lori to display, you will also need to do the following in Firefox. Click on View, then Toolbars, then Add-on Bar. You will now see a counter on the bottom right of your browser screen. This is a toggle and you can turn it off.
2) Print out a response time form to keep track of response time issues. You will want one for each PC. Record the Library Name and PC name on each form. (Note: form is behind the ILS secure web site; login required).
3) Keep track of any respones time issues. Be as detailed as possible.
4) When a page is complete, send it to Vicki Teal Lovely at SCA via SCLS Delivery.
We will be compiling the data to see if we can isolate any patterns of response time issues in the Koha software. We may also decide to do network anylysis or PC analysis based on these results as either may also contribute to response time problems.
Thanks for your help!
