Following are weekly users and session graph
Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays continued to be the most popular days for iLab sessions, although overall usage of the product fell steadily from mid November to early December as Macquarie University students undertook examinations.
Before the understandable drop in iLab usage that coincided with the three-week examination period, students users of the Microsoft Windows 7 desktop peaked at 98 and students sessions peaked at 213. With the Apple Mac OS X Snow Leopard desktops, student users peaked at 23 and students sessions peaked at 42. Interestingly, staff usage of the Mac OS X Snow Leopard desktops was consistent and, at times, even higher than that of students.
From 30 October to 8 December, HelpDesk handled seven requests for assistance with iLab.
Launched in October 2011, iLab has been live for three months. With Macquarie University's examination period about to end, the demand to use its computer laboratories – both physical and virtual – is about to experience its annual end-of-year drop-off. So we thought that it was a good time to do some number crunching and report how iLab has performed since being unleashed on the university community.
Below are graphs that illustrate the usage of iLab's two desktops – Microsoft Windows 7 and Mac OS X Snow Leopard. It is worth noting that Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays are the most popular days for users of the iLab Windows desktop and that, understandably, overall usage of the product began to fall at the start of the exam period.
Everything is going well and according to the iLab team's plan. There have no major issues reported regarding iLab's systems, infrastructure and capacity.
