cogent last night

Did anyone in San Antonio or surrounding areas have internet issues last
night around ~8:00 - 8:30 p.m. central time ?

I saw a significant drop in traffic during that time with packet loss seen
on ping attempts.

Just wanted to know if I was the only one that took a hit


No, I Wasn't the only one. 2 other neighboring South Texas ISP's just told
me they had same packet loss/high latency issues on their cogent connection
during same time frame.

Anyone know why this occurred and how far reaching it was ?


Interesting, I pick up Cogent in Toronto and saw some sort of issue
between them and sites I pick up out of AS577 (via in Cogent in
Chicago). BGP paths seemed to be there, but traffic dropped to almost
nothing for about 10min. By the time I got online to look, the issue had
resolved. This was at about 02:05 Eastern to ~ 02:20. Were they
perhaps doing some big upgrades ?
