Actually, an eyeballing of the MIT data would suggest that the SQL
worm hit harder and faster than NIMDA, and resulted in a more
drastic effect on routing tables. I've updated the page I mentioned
to also contain the graph of MIT updates during the NIMDA worm.
I should note that our route monitor moved closer to MIT's border
router between these updates - it's now colocated in the same datacenter,
and before it was across the street, which made it a bit more susceptable
to link resets during the NIMDA worm attack. LCS is more prone to
dropping off the network than is the entire MIT campus. Therefore, the
NIMDA graph probably has a few more session resets (the spikes up to
100,000 routes updated) than it should.
