RE: Problems with AT&T
If someone can identify what you are actually seeing, I'll check into it. If you are experiencing drops or slow traces, only through the core, there is an issue with excessive de-prioritization of ICMP control message with a particular router type (vendcor) in the core. End to end data flow has not seemed to be affected but trace and ping core latencies are looking very wierd. I've been asking customers to use trace only for path detail and to use end to end ping for any performance data. Yes, the core is MPLS enabled. Diffserv acted on only at the edges though.

I'm guessing that packet size > is relevant, but I haven't spent much time trying to troubleshoot it. isn't at&t heavily MPLSed? maybe something to do with mpls tunnels, or diff-serv marking?
