Canvas and Pattern Service Issues

Posted: 14:24:03, Friday, Oct 21, 2016   Expiration: 06:00:00, Sunday, Oct 23, 2016

Today's wide-scale Internet issues are impacting portions of UW-Madison's Canvas and Pattern systems.

Today's wide-scale denial of service attacks on critical Internet services are causing issues with some tools used by UW-Madison students, faculty, and staff.

Known issues include:

- Canvas document rendering engine. Canvas is performing well except for the service that helps display PDF files or other documents. Users should try downloading the documents prior to opening.

- Pattern. This mobile and web app is now available. It was down on Friday, October 21, but is back online as of  Saturday, October 22.

This message will be updated as more information becomes available.
