As disclosed in the minutes of a recent PeeringDB board meeting (*) please
be aware of the following changes to PeeringDB services:
- The "finger" service will stop operating on December 1st, 2018.
- The "whois" service is now available via "whois.peeringdb.com". It
will not be reachable via other hostnames after December 1st, 2018.
whois -h whois.peeringdb.com as1
These changes are steps toward increased reliability in the form of
enabling both IPv4 and IPv6 load balancing of the web/API servers. At
present IPv4 is load balanced while IPv6 scaling is based on DNS
Please let me know of any comments/questions/concerns.
Chris Caputo on behalf of PeeringDB Operations
