Radio Netherlands website temporarily out of action
On Wednesday evening, the Radio Netherlands Worldwide website was largely out of action for many hours. The disruption was caused by various search machines making an inventory of its content.
RNW IT engineer Robert Molenaar said, “Various search engines like Yahoo, Google and MSN make an inventory of all sites. This is also done with the RNW website. The index requests increased so rapidly that the database was unable to cope temporarily.”
The disruption has now been resolved.
