WRDS Scheduled Downtime — Tuesday, September 29, 2009.
The WRDS server will be undergoing scheduled maintenance from 12:00pm-8:00pm ET on Tuesday, September 29, 2009.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
During this period, the WRDS website will be unavailable. However, access will remain for those users accessing WRDS through UNIX and PC SAS Connect. Interactive queries during this period should continue to run unaffected.
WRDS will be adding additional network hardware to expand capacity.
As a result of this upgrade to the new WRDS website (http://wrds-web.wharton.upenn.edu), users will experience the following:
· Improved execution time for queries when WRDS is under heavy load.
· New users will have the ability to apply for WRDS accounts from the new website home page:
· WRDS Reps will be able to review and approve new account requests through the enhanced Rep Tools under MyWRDS>Rep Tools>Pending Approval.
Thank you for your patience as we continue to enhance your WRDS service and performance.
Information will be posted on the WRDS site once this downtime has been completed.
