Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I'm using the nominatim geolocation API (via geopy), and I had a bug in my caching, so I hit the site a few thousand times instead of a few hundred.

Now, I can't even ping nominatim:

Pinging nominatim.openstreetmap.org [] with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from Destination host unreachable.

I can access nominatim fine from another source IP address.

I'm wondering if my IP address is blocked because of the number of requests that I made.

Thanks in advance, David

Ask on the IRC #dev channel, or wait 24 hours. Not really the right forum for this type of problem.

Even just lurking in #osm-dev for a while would tell you when people are trying to fix things :)

This wiki page, and the munin links from it, here might help a bit:


Obviously it's a wiki page and won't show up-to-the-second changes as load is moved around, but it should be an introduction.
