BGP instability?


We saw some instability this morning around 2:53am (EST) that resulted in practically complete communication failure in our Detroit colo. It lasted approximately 45 minutes and service was restored rather gradually.

Subject: BGP instability?


Did anyone else see a large amount of instability between around 12:20am and 3:10am? (UTC, May 17th) We saw around 9 million announces per hour during that period come in through all our upstreams (vs an average normal of around 128k per hour).

Just curious as to what happened, if anything.
