AboveNet major backbone issues

It appears that AboveNet is having major worldwide backbone issues at the moment. We were seeing high latency from the US to Europe, and now some European routes are no longer being advertised to the US.

We are seeing those European routes again. Looks like the downtime for the European routes was from 11:00am to 12:15pm central time.

Anyone have any more information? Leo?

We loaded some global config changes last night. Sometime after
they were loaded BadThings(tm) happened. We're still working with
vendors to find the exact causes and ensure that we don't have
further problems going forward.

Things appear stable at this time, but we may have to make additional
changes depending on what the vendors tell us to work around the
issues involved. The plan is still evolving, and I'm not leading
that charge so I have limited data at this time.

Customers who have problems should send in a traceroute (bidirectional
if at all possible) to the usual support channels.

Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes your the bug.
