Data Protector 10 scheduler usability failure

0 Votes

I really must protest about the new web-based scheduler in Data Protector 10 (version 10.10).  Never mind that  it is laid out more awkwardly than the old version.  The first problem is that it is SO SLOW as to be ALMOST UNUSABLE.  Just to get past the initial screen I have to wait 30 seconds while it does its credential check.  EVERY TIME I go to the scheduler I get hit with this delay.  Then, when setting up a schedule, once again the delays are intolerable.  Click to go to the next screen -- wait 20 seconds.  Even just a kestroke when entering text - type a key, wait a full second for it to echo.

This is totally unacceptable.  Does anyone bother to do QA on this stuff?

I recognize that you put in a lot of effort to create this new scheduler, but sometimes software projects fail and this is one of those cases.


What plans do you have to rectify these problems?
