On the back of the latest round of security related posts, anyone notice
the 50% packet loss (as reported to me) across the USA -> NZ links
around lunchtime (GMT+10) today?
Yep, easily .. we saw big routing problems for that /19 and a lot
of innocent bystanders, in two waves, correlated across most sources.
First signs of trouble at 23:12 GMT. Then long periods of unreachability,
from roughly 23:15-23:42 GMT and 01:26-02:10 GMT (the second one less
well-correlated; routes were still available from some of our peers).
Routes were fully restored globally by 02:12 GMT, presumably after the
upstream rate limiting kicked in.
If anyone has mrtg plots for the affected links, I'd sure like to see 'em.
