We've been seeing significant packet loss across the Sprintlink circuit
between MAE West and their Stockton POP. I note that there's a big hike in
RTT at the Stockton POP:
sl-mae-w-F0/0.sprintlink.net (220.127.116.11) 15 ms 39 ms 13 ms
sl-stk-6-H3/0-T3.sprintlink.net (18.104.22.168) 224 ms 185 ms 222 ms
On Oct 2nd, I heard something along the lines that route damping was in
effect (this was from Sprintlink). I presume what was meant was route
flapping was eating CPU.
Does anyone have any information on what's taking place? There's a heck of
a lot of traffic that flows across this path, and the packet loss is killing
performance (and making the phone ring).
