I just saw Glen Eustace's post which reminded me of an issue we have
seen of late with regards to 'my internet seems slow'. Just wondering if
anyone else has seen this similar issue since PIPE joined the APE, then
again it's not just PIPE, but a mixture of Oz providers accepting
traffic over the APE and then returning the transit via international
links such as Vocus.
I have a few customers that buy dedicated international and dedicated
domestic bandwidth. These customers have a stub address that resides in
the Domestic VRF & another stub in the International VRF. Since PIPE
came on-board we have noticed that customers trying to do a whois
(whois.apnic.net) using their router that connects the stubs, that the
traffic goes out thinking its Domestic, but then gets no response
because it attempts to return in via the International (Transit) VRF to
which has no access to stubs in the Domestic VRF.
Another issue we see where 'slow' comes into play is internode have
recently been added to speedtest.net as a NZ speedtest server in
Auckland. While tracing to this node it does appear to go across APE,
the return path is via Vocus. When a customer attempts a speed test and
they see they are only able to obtain say 30mbps rather than the 100mbps
they would expect from a "NZ" server they start thinking something is
broken, when actually it's because the server is International and they
are in a pool of bandwidth.
I've tried to contact internode & so has a colleague of mine but with
no luck. We've tried to pre-pend AS's to the vocus communities but again
this hasnt helped at all.
Just wondering if anyone else has seen issues arise since ASYNC routing
between Oz & NZ, to do with either STUBs getting no internet due to VRF
nature, or these 'slow' speeds being reported.
Recommend not upgrading to 6.2 if you use ISC.
Found that once upgraded, ISC will take out all lines of 'switchport trunk
allowed vlan' except the first when deploying new services.
Ex, when trying to add vlan 3000
switchport trunk allowed vlan 1-3, 6-8, 78-82 99-199
switchport trunk allowed vlan add 1125,1129-1335,2025
switchport trunk allowed vlan 1-3, 6-8, 78-82 99-199,3000
Somewhat disquieting. Already rolled back to 6.1.4 as that could happily
take out a core network.
In my role at Massey University, I am often asked to investigate
complaints from our Help Desk of a 'the Internet is slow' nature. We
are finding this increasingly difficult to do in any meaningful way.
Massey is peered at WIX, PNIX and APE we have two Internet peers and
have multiple paths to them and they both have multiple upstream providers.
Simply ping testing for latency/connectivity doesn't really provide much
of an insight, traceroute tells us where outbound packets went and which
hops are 'slow' but doesn't indicate the return path. Most of our
customers equate Website == Internet, so the responsiveness of a
destination seems to also be an important consideration.
I am assuming that most ISPs have Help Desk calls of a similar nature.
How does one substantiate or refute such complaints, pro-actively
identify 'slowness/congestion' ? Evidence collected by 'tools' needs to
be defensible when responding to our 'customers'.
Any pointers to how I can do this better would be appreciated.
I meant for a "sky tower hosted Akamai". The implication is that it is proposed to be provider independent, is that not the case?
My understanding is that Akamai push some stuff, and some stuff is pulled on demand. Does that answer your question?

Wondering if anyone has a simple client that works with LMNP systems.
The client they provided is a java client that looks to be written for
windows, so I'm hoping someone may have a linux / bash / php version
that may work?

Just had one of our subscribers get their trademe account closed by the
support department because they are "outside new zealand".
Really they are in hawkes bay and i want to make sure this isnt going to
happen to anyone else because of the ip range we use.
