BGP noise tonight?
Say, our alarms went off tonight when we saw a roughly tenfold spike in BGP prefix announcement and withdrawal rates at RIPE's rrc00 and rrc03 collection points in Amsterdam. The trouble started around 20:00 GMT, hit its peak by about 21:00 GMT, and has trailed off slowly since then. Looking at the worst-behaved prefixes and AS paths led me to put in a call to the tech support center of an unnamed Major Provider, who confirmed that there had been a major BGP event but would provide no specifics. So, what's going on out there in the NOCs tonight? Inquiring minds want to know. --jim
