Re: GBLX congestion in Dallas area

  • From: Sharif Torpis

It all depends on what you call a medium/large-scale outage. Based on
historical list content, I think such outages are typified by events such as
(mis)handling of malformed AS_PATH attributes by different router vendors,
AS7007, Sprint 0.0.0.0, NSI root server corruption, widespread/cascading
problems in a large provider's frame-relay network, etc. Generic fiber cuts
and congestion just don't qualify. What's changed?

Regards,
Sharif
