Re: UUnet blocking ICMP ECHO for select sources/destinations ?

The observations suggest something different. Remember that I mentioned
that this blockage only occurs for a SINGLE IP in my network: the base
IP belonging to the server doing the stats collection every 5 minutes. Other
IP's (even on that server) are ok. Rate limiting would be visible as packet
loss after the committed rate is exceeded: you can't rate-limit on production border routers down to single-host
granularity, only a big interface-wide
rate-limit will work. I am still trying to determine if the interface IP
in question is the customer side of things, but things are a bit murky
there, because there appear to be ACLs on both sides of the link.

Kai what if UUnet is running some type of QOS mechanism in their
core network that prevents massive amounts of icmp messages
traveling through? Maybe they are rate-limiting everyone with CAR.
Their infrastructure is interesting they use Cisco, Fore, and Juniper
at least in production. And they claim they run an MPLS network;
maybe this is where icmp traffic is killed..
