Performance Issues: RISWhois service

The RISWhois service has experienced some performance and availability issues recently. We investigated this and isolated the cause to a general increase in user load on the service, as well as some unexpected load spikes brought about by our backup system. We have added additional resources to the riswhois server and optimised our backup system to avoid future interruptions to service.

RISWhois Availability

The RISWhois service experienced some performance and availability issues between 5 and 10 November 2010. We investigated this and isolated the cause to a general increase in user load, as well as some unexpected load spikes brought about by our back-up system. We have added additional resources to the server and optimised the back-up system to avoid future service interruptions.

Due to heavy demand for files served by www.ripe.net, the website became unavailable on Friday, 17 October at approximately 13:00 (UTC). This service outage lasted until approximately 13:10 (UTC), when load balancing software took over and normal service was resumed.
