For your convenience, the pdf version of the statistics was send around via email.
Note that from May 2011 reports, suspension threshold is increased to 70% availability for 3 consecutive months per OMB decision,  
as it has been broadcasted already.
Site UNI_BONN and UNI-SIEGEN have just recertified in the month. UNI-BONN(1356) and TUDresden-ZIH(1355) have filled the ticket. But  
UNI-SIEGEN-HEP and UNI-KARLSRUHE have not yet answered the ticket. 
There is a ticket ID mistake. The two sites UNI-KARLSRUHE and UNI-SIEGEN –HEP got the same ticket id 1357. So UNI-KARLSRUHE has not  
got  the ticket at the end.
