Re: should TCPs do MTU black hole detection?
>> I'm wondering whether the ISP community has a clear preference for either >> yes-do-detection or no-we-want-the-problems-fixed. >> Comments appreciated. > I think that most ISP's would prefer that problems were fixed. the choice seems o when it breaks, the noc gets the call, debugs it, and it gets fixed o when it breaks, the software does successive guesswork back-offs until it makes it through. the performance sucks big-time, the customer thinks the isp is at fault, but the noc does not get called and the real problem never gets fixed. randy
