RE: Horrible world trade center crash, traffic effect

Our Internap DS-3 circuit is down in NY. InterNAP can't call the circuit out
to Verizon, because Verizon isn't doing any testing or dispatching
currently. It could be a few days till this circuit comes back. We are
moving to our other providers at different geographical sites currently.

The problem seems to be site limiting, rather than network limiting. 
i.e., news sites are being overloaded, which is causing slow or no 
response to http queries due to either server overload (my guess) or 
news site transit link overload (also possible). This is what seems to 
be causing lacking of response to news sites, instead of generalized 
network or peering congestion.

I can concur. Network running fine (busy, but not full). Servers *very* 
busy. I am amazed how few network outages in NYC I am hearing about.
