Level3 problems

I see its completely down and several others are starting
to have problems.
Anyone knows whats up ?

Thanks

I think everyone sees them completely down across the board (even mpls
transport services), been that way for about 30 mins now. :slight_smile:

All of Speakeasy outbound SF (and possible other locations) is down,
after being on hold with them, they are saying Level3 and not further
information yet.

They're giving out master ticket #'s of 1429209 1429184 and 1429189
depending on who you talk to apparently (though I don't think they'll have
any trouble finding it under "total network outage" :P). Rumor has it a
maintenance in Chicago backfired (it did start at exactly 02:00 EDT on the
dot). Anyone else having flashbacks to IGP/CEF bugs? :slight_smile:

Authoritative sources report that Verio coincidentally had major problems last night also:

Odd.

The last time there was major instability due to multiple backbones upgrading was ... oh crap. So I'm going to get a major PSIRT "upgrade now or die" notice while I'm at NANOG. Good thing Monday evening is open...

we (isc) saw level(3) go away and come back. verio's been normal here though.

The Verio part seems to be an observational anormaly caused by
the frame of reference of the observer.
