A temporary outage on the AMS-IX internet backbone caused an extended outage of internet traffic across Netherlands.
Dear Tech-L subscribers,
Today Wednesday 13/05/2015 at 12:20 UTC+2 an installation engineer working on the PE under maintenance in EQUINIX AM3, while testing one of the newly installed 100GE modules, accidentally placed a loop on the ISP peering VLAN.
The loop caused a high CPU on all backbone and customer modules resulting in many BGP sessions dropping.
The incident lasted 10 minutes.
BGP sessions are restoring.
The situation has normalized again.

A lot of the server infrastructures currently located in Frankfurt will relocate to the new state-of-the-art Datadock data center in Strassbourg. This includes this website's hosting (Server4you) as well. The exact time of relocation is currently unknown, but estimates by the end of 2010.

(10:00): There are currently some general routing problems, affecting the majority of the customers at Belgacom. The problems started around 7am this morning. I've contacted Belgacom, and they said the problem would be resolved by 11am.
Unofficially, rumor has it that the police has raided Belgacom because of suspected fraud. Whether this has got something to do with the routing problems is unknown. More details and corrections will follow.
Update (12:00): after careful testing and a bit of a hick-up (routing between Telenet and Belgacom still gave troubles), everything seems to be in order again. Additional news about the alledged raid will follow as soon as I have more info.
