Anyone have any details on what is going on with AboveNet? Evidently
something major but our support contacts didn't have a lot of details,
said there'd be something out later this afternoon about it. Wondering
if others are experiencing problems with them.

We received this totally ambiguous and non-specific message this morning:

connectivity issues. These issues began at
04:00am (EST). We are investigating the cause
and will continue to keep you updated as to the
progress and resolution of this event.

I ignored it since our connectivity from multiple points all seem pretty reasonable...

We got the same thing. According to Cricket BGP update graphs, we had
some AboveNet route flapping at about 3:15AM and again from about
4:00-4:30AM EST. There were some much smaller bursts of updates around
11:15AM...but I haven't noticed any connectivity issues.

I saw the Above.Net issue and noticed that Glbx is taking an emergency
maintenance window for tomorrow morning to upgrade router software on ALL
routers (nice). I wonder if this is related since both networks use
Juniper. If anyone has info to share, it would be on-topic I think :slight_smile:
