Whois-RWS Release Update

Posted: Sunday, 27 June 2010

On 26 June, ARIN rolled out Whois-RWS. Unfortunately, we experienced a very significant increase in traffic after rollout which exceeded our load capacity and caused the new service to degrade to an unacceptable level. To ensure customers could continue to access ARIN's Whois data, we have reverted to the old service which degrades more gracefully under load. We are examining the data gathered on the traffic patterns we experienced and are making the necessary changes to deploy Whois-RWS in the near future. We thank you for your patience, and we look forward to making the Whois-RWS service available for community use very soon.
