This is again the same as T156845: For Tool Labs admins: Notice of heavy use of tool in the next month. Please be adviced that the account elegibility tool (http://tools.wmflabs.org/meta/accounteligibility/) will get more usage and traffic than usual due to the elections from Feb 8 to Feb 28. The last day of the elections (Feb 28) the ElectCom will need to recheck all accounts again so in adittion to the traffic these days you’ll likely notice a spike of usage that very day. Given that the tool is needed to verify voters, we’d appreciate if you could keep an eye on it and, if possible, increase the number of simultaneous requests the tool can receive, etc. Thank you.
FWIW, the host the webservice is running on seems to be overloaded:
