Intermittent latency and timeouts for Wikipedia API


I am Biswajit and I have a Java application calling Wikipedia APIs.

Since the last 2-3 months, I have seen a lot of intermittent latencies and timeouts from the Wikipedia APIs being used and was wondering if there is something which can be done to reduce them.

I am using the following API endpoints with params, from both US and EU regions.

Let me know if any additional details are required. It would be very helpful if I can do anything to reduce the timeouts and latencies.

Thanks and Regards,
Biswajit Dey
