All this talk today about outages and the like had me looking at something I know about that I'm not sure everyone else is aware of but nevertheless is fairly awesome. H/T to the lads and ladettes at WAND.
If there were more nodes in the system we'd all get a better idea of what parts of NZ's internet are affected in times of trouble.
We've been doing maintenance work involving moving spanning tree roots
and we've experiencing considerable network instability.
We've tracked the issue down to a 7609 that has crashed to the point the
supervisor won't respond (lots of stack traces in the logs). Engineers
are now on site with replacement hardware.
No ETA for full restoration of services at this stage.
