network outage - core routers firmware update

Post by adminless »

just apparently reporting a network outage now by the provider (that it seems like it led to a cut this morning around noon too btw) due a core router kernel bug that it looks it has been fixed now with some core routers firmware updates (which obviously led to another small downtime). from what I could dig it looks like the task should have ended by now and that should have fixed it, sorry for the inconvenience.

Yes, we lost connection during the pickup. It was almost finished. CTF server was working.

I know, unlucky, I was also online doing some maintenance and server work when I lost connectivity and turned into provider and found out about the core router firmware update and the incident. anyways from what I had read and seen so far I believe that should have made and now hopefully the network core routers (which are way beyond the server contract) should be all running fresh firmware so hopefully there should be no other outages any time soon as usual.

as I'm telling you the servers (all of them, the most notable routes) are all monitored 24/7 with the smokeping service and apart from the cuts reported on this incident (that apparently got fixed right on the same day by the provider) and apparently a few spikes this weekend involving the second route I do not observe any kind issue with them. in fact most routes and parameters looks on the improvement and as I just said this provider core routers (backbones/internal core routers) have been all updated to latest firmware so I doubt there should be much problems with them.
