The LIR Portal suffered a partial outage starting at 23:00 (UTC) on 30 December 2010, followed by a full outage starting at 05:00 (UTC) on 31 December. The problem was caused by a configuration issue which was resolved at 06:00 (UTC) on 31 December.

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.
