Subject: [arin-announce] Whois-RWS Release Update

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 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.
