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.



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.
