Initial network impacts post-US attack 3/19/03
Some major new web sites such as CNN.COM, MSNBC.COM, etc have dropped most advertisements from their main web pages. CNN.COM has switched to its "breaking news" format with a truncated main page. I have not had any difficulty reaching any major US news web site. Matrix and Keynote public graphs show normal latency, drops, etc. BGP, ASN data sources show normal number of prefixes, announcements, withdrawals. AT&T and Cable&Wireless public network statistic pages show almost all major links within normal levels. However, tonight I am not able to reach the few Iraq servers I know about. The servers were reachable on Monday, but I wasn't keeping constant track of those servers. So I don't know when I could no longer reach them. This may just be normal network flakiness, the Iraqi networks aren't very reliable on a normal day.
