Issues with RIPE Atlas infrastructure

Network Maintenance: 12-14 August 2015

On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week (12-14 August), between 16:00 and 20:00 (UTC), the RIPE NCC will carry out maintenance work on its core network infrastructure. During this period, some services hosted by the RIPE NCC may be affected. These could include the RIPE NCC website, RIPE Labs, the RIPE Database and the LIR Portal. Public DNS services operated by the RIPE NCC should be available as normal. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any questions, please contact <>.

Measurement Data Processing Delay

We are currently investigating processing delays in the storage back-ends for RIPEstat, RIPE Atlas and DNSMON. This impacts the processing of newly incoming data, so our data services may be delayed in displaying new data. We will rectify the situation and will provide an update as soon as possible.

Planned Network Maintenance - 23 June
RIPE NCC Access service interruption

At 06:14 UTC on 16 June 2015, there was a brief interruption to the RIPE NCC Access service, which affected any Whois queries and updates using an SSO credential. This interruption lasted less than one minute. Service then returned to normal.

Planned Maintenance on 16 June

On Tuesday, 16 June 2015, from 06:00 to 07:00 UTC, we will carry out maintenance work on one of our fileservers. This fileserver is used mainly for internal services, so we do not expect the maintenance work to affect external services. However, we apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any questions, please contact <>.

Billing and Payments Maintenance Issues
Service Interruption

Today, between 12:20 and 13:00 (UTC +2) the Internet exchange that we peer with had a major peering problem which affected all RIPE NCC external services during the period. This has now been resolved.
