Sorry for waking you all before breakfast, but is anyone else seeing
~5000 more routes than normal this morning ?
Just a sample of some unusually long ASPaths I'm seeing here

(and it isn't just PSI we're seeing these from, just that that was the
log I looked in. 2041 3789 seems a common factor though. )
GateD-beech.router.demon.net> show ip routes
100 IP radix tree: 97679 nodes, 50773 routes
This is looking horribly familiar.
Yes, I'm seeing about 49.000 routes, when I used to see 44.000.
No idea where they come from :-0
Does anyone know of any good IP monitoring tools that can log/monitor the
TYPES of IP traffic going across your netowork (ie: one that logs tcp/udp and
esp port numbers/types of traffic)? Something that could query a router
would be nice, although I am unaware of any routers that support such a feature.
Even something that you could put on a box on the same ethernet subnet would
do the job. I'm curious as to the types of traffic our customers are pushing
as I am attempting to better analyze our usage.
A Network General sniffer will do this for you, and it's a really nice
(read expensive) piece of equipment to have. They go for around $26,000
(someone correct me if I'm wrong... I've never bought one myself). If
that's out of your price range, there's always sniffer software for your
platform/os. Also, there's a piece of software for sys V/solaris (forget
which one) that will show you the types of network connections between
machines on your network that runs in X/openwin. I didn't work with
the program directly, but it laid everything out in a nice chart, and
showed the whole range of traffic types (udp/tcp/etc.)... I'm sure
someone on the list knows the name of it...
