I would like an explanation as to why Clear ( It looks

This resulted from an incorrect BGP community list on our router
at NZIX - controlling redistribution from our internal routing table.
For some (as yet unexplained) reason this uncovered itself at around 6pm
yesterday during OSPF-related problem resolution for a customer.
I say unexplained because it would appear that the problem has potentially
existed for some months but has not manifested itself until now.
This caused a major outage on my network due to the
routing tables filling
up the available memory on some of my smaller routers.
When did you first notice this, Tony? Were you able to contact anyone at
CLEAR for assistance? As a last resort the APNIC or RADB entries should
have some good phone numbers.
This highlights the inability to sensibly filter mistakes from OSPF at NZIX.
How many devices at NZIX are ready/willing to speak BGP and drop OSPF
