The result of Suggestion 2007.2, sent through the ARIN Consultation and 
Suggestion Process and asking for the removal of the 256 WHOIS query 
results limit, was an ARIN community consultation and polling. Links to 
the consultation mailing list discussion and polling results are 
available on the ARIN website at:

Although the poll elicited very few strong opinions on whether or not to 
increase the query results, ARIN feels that there was enough community 
interest expressed in this topic that it merits further consideration.

Consequently, we will not raise the WHOIS query results limit at this 
time, but will conduct testing of an increase to determine the impact on 
performance of the current system. The testing will be scheduled in our 
work plan in consonance with our current work load.
