When are the best times of the week and/or day (please state the timezone) to use the Geonames service to minimize the likelihood of returning this error:

ERROR: canceling statement due to statement timeout [value] => 13

I have received that error message quite a lot recently. I don't think there is a coding error and I don't think my calls to these APIs:

http://api.geonames.org/findNearbyWikipediaJSON
and
http://api.geonames.org/wikipediaBoundingBoxJSON

have been particularly frequent or onerous, so I imagine the Geonames server is overburdened - hence my question.

Many thanks.

Any thoughts on this from the experts like Marc please ?

I have tried some more bounding box API calls in the evening London time today and last weekend and get nothing but the same error message:

ERROR: canceling statement due to statement timeout [value] => 13

Many thanks,
Mike

On weekends the load on the free servers is lower. During workdays it is high after 12pm GMT till 0 GMT.

Thanks Marc. As one might have guessed then. Mike
