Does anyone have any idea when the ARIN whois is going to be stable? It is been hit or miss for about a week. It generally just hangs via web, and times out via commandline whois.

at the last nanog (or a previous one?) Mark Kosters had a preso about some sudden ramp up of whois traffic (a lightning talk perhaps I'm remembering?). At that time I believe he said they were seeing intermediate issues but had things in hand (aside from the wonder of where the traffic came from, something related he thought to oauth login validations?).

Perhaps the ramp up continued up? Mark?

What I'm seeing is that most of the time I try a query (which is usually once or twice a day), it hangs for long enough for me to give up via the web site, and try via command line, which also hangs while waiting for a response from whois.arin.net.

I tried it just now, and the query got me to the redirect to whois.arin.net, and it hung there for about 2 minutes before finally loading. Command-line appeared to work well enough.

I tried this this morning quite a few times and my results are all clean and consistent -- I'm doing this from public wireless as well:

hannigan at clue-store> time whois 28.0.0.0

real    0m0.245s
user    0m0.001s
sys    0m0.004s


That symptom reminds me of broken Solaris DNS, reverse IIRC.


Best,

It's looking to me like it might be some intermittent funkiness with IPv6 connectivity. Strange that it only affects whois...
