information ICANN Launches New IMRS Report Page



ICANN announced the release of a new ICANN Managed Root Server (IMRS) page.

The page offers a collection of public reports on activities and incidents related to the IMRS prepared by ICANN's Security and Network Engineering (SaNE) team.

ICANN publishes monthly reports on the operational status of the IMRS, known within the Domain Name System (DNS) as L.ROOT-SERVERS.NET. These reports may be found here.

The reports contain useful information regarding the performance indicators for DNS queries, operational indicators for security incidents related to IMRS and other events, and size and location of the IMRS (for example number of instances by ICANN regions).

For the month of August 2021, the team reported that:
  • There were no outstanding issues related to security or unplanned downtime.
  • There were no observed anomalies in DNS Traffic to the IMRS.
