There you will find graphs tracking daily peak concurrency over the past 30 days and monthly peak concurrency for the past 12 months.

Important New Login Information

Due to changes related to the recent site migration, we have encountered a major issue related to profile logins. In order to resolve this issue we have had to make a change to how IP authentication works. Users will no longer be instantly logged into their account with IP authentication. Going forward, to access both the official RDA Toolkit and the original site via IP authentication, you will have to click the login button without filling in a username or password. Here's a quick breakdown on how to login into RDA Toolkit.
