We're currently experiencing significant latency through Cogent at AADS.
I've heard they have some general latency issues, but nothing concrete
yet as to what and where. Does anyone have any details of any problems
while we're waiting for a response back from the NOC? Thanks,
I can't be certain this has anything to do with it, as I haven't
called for a report today. But as of Friday I was seeing upwards of 1200
ms due to a fiber outage (Either a cut or turnoff, they wouldn't say.)
and them running over capacity due to the outage. If I hear anything
else I'll post to the list.
Okay...Just talked to Cogent. The fiber outage was resolved on Saturday.
I'm not actually seeing latency on their network (I Just changed my
preferences to actually follow some of their routes.) I'm out on AS 1 at
Thanks to all those who responded. The problem appears to have
mysteriously cleared up at the moment. Mysteriously, because I haven't
yet heard official word from Cogent or other 3rd party on a definitive
cause of the degradation.
