The LHCb experiment has collected an unprecedented data sample to investi-
gate beauty and charm hadrons decays. One of its key detector components is
the RICH system providing excellent particle identification (PID) over a wide
momentum range (2-100 GeV). Last year for the first time the RICH detectors
have been operated in the automatic LHCb online alignment framework that,
together with the well established calibration system, provided an excellent per-
formance. The operations and performance of the RICH system during Run II
are presented together with the activities performed during the winter shutdown
to prepare for the last running period of the current RICH detectors before the
LHCb upgrade.
