FWIW, we (Nordunet/Sunet) today saw one of the larger dDoS attacks we've seen so far in our end of the net, totaling around 2MPPS toward a single host. It was coordinated, wery well-spread (came in through both transit providers at equal balance, and almost as much over the REN connection towards the rest of Europe and some spillage over private peers.) and persistent. We've had to deploy several layers of null0 routes to fight it, (our transit providers have been very helpful, btw.) but service to anything except the attacked host has not been affected much. Them tax-financed OC192's come in handy at times ;-) -- Måns Nilsson Systems Specialist +46 70 681 7204 KTHNOC MN1334-RIPE
