Does that mean they have upgraded/added more servers to
better handle the load? I'm getting old and forgetful,
but I seem to recall such an effort being in the works.
component of LoTW that processes uploaded QSOs,
referred to as the “LoTW Server”, was significantly
updated; part of this effort included replacing a
database engine interface implemented with a
proprietary C++ API with one implemented in ODBC – an
industry standard. This first stage has roughly
doubled the rate at which uploaded QSOs can be
processed. It was deployed to production back in early
August. Performance will increase further when the
database engine is upgraded, an action previously
prevented by the dependency on the C++ API.
