System maintenance

Maintenance window

To ensure high quality, continuous services, APNIC has specified fixed periods to perform maintenance work as follows:

Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday 07:00 to 09:00 (UTC +10)

APNIC will attempt to avoid interruptions to external services, although in some cases this may not be possible.

All reasonable precautions will also be taken by APNIC to ensure that software and hardware modifications made during a maintenance window have been fully tested before being relied upon for external services.

Urgent maintenance

Some maintenance is time critical, especially security-related updates. In instances when system security may be compromised by not acting immediately, APNIC may perform maintenance without prior notification.

Find out about current, past, and other important updates from the Announcements news archive.
