/24 route propagation, how long is reasonable?

  • From: Michael Airhart

Quick question for the group..

How long should I be patient to wait for some /24s to become fully routable worldwide?

None of the addresses are mine, they came from the upstream (only one provider)

They are all part of the upstreams IP space, and I had assumed that they would have kept them as part of a larger block and just blackholed into their network.. Instead it seems that route filters had to be propagated WW before the traffic would leave a given AS..

I can reach the nets now (after the first day) from most of the ASs out there, as seen from traceroute.org... But, as my luck would have it, the two nets that I connect from can't get there (die at the handoff to the next AS). I have confirmed this from other people on a few other ASs as well.

It has been two days now.. I don't want to be one of those PITA customers you guys get tired of, but I have work to get done.. How long should I sit on my hands?

Note: I would post the /24s, but I don't want to call negative attention to a SP that might be doing his/her job just fine and I just have unrealistic expectations..

Thanks in advance!

Michael
