During the latter months of 2006 and the first half of 2007, the CMS Tracker was assembled and operated at the Tracker Integration Facility at CERN. During this period the performance of the tracker at trigger rates up to 100 kHz was assessed, and a source of high occupancy events was uncovered, diagnosed, and mitigated.
