RE: Incease in latency to TLD servers


   The seven day map at shows it
as even more dramatic. When I looked at the daily one, I wonder if perhaps
the demand of all those DNS servers re-querying for Microsoft was the
cause... but if that was the case, I assume (yuk!) we would have seen it
yesterday, too.

   Have you ever seen spikes like this before? Any theories?


shows a similar spike *last* week. This ring any bells?

If not, maybe we're looking at a sampling artifact. Maybe a weekly maint
window for some link is dropping load onto a satellite backup link?
