BGP route explosion

I had a network outage this morning brought about by a BGP route explosion at around 6:30 EST(-4) this morning. Anyone else notice it, and who the culprit whats? I got the exact same hit from both my providers, AT&T Can, and Telus.

Thanks

How many extra prefixes did u see? We saw about 10k prefixes more than
normal

I did not see this on Sprint, UUNet or vBNS.

Neat tool - I tried to grab the src but the first 1000 or so lines are blank
and uncompilable. Anyone have a good version of the src?

actually, it looks more like the sources have been sorted alphabetically
by line or something weird..

likewise, anyone have the src for this handy and willing to share?

Thanks

I got this better link from John Elliott:

http://www.telstra.net/ops/bgp/bgp-parse.c

We saw at least an extra 10k prefixes, the router is/was configured to stop at 120k prefixes, little did I know that it would shutdown the BGP session at that point.

Thanks for the info.

Has it been established yet where the extra prefixes came from?
