Thu Dec 3 13:01:46 PST 1998 — Some folks have noticed a difference in performance between dialup connections on nas21 and nas22. After some investigation (including some special monitoring by Devin and Ian — thanks guys), we have identified a congestion situation in our switched infrastructure, as well as a way to prevent it. To avoid a similar congestion situation this evening, we are currently moving network connections to some of our gear; unfortunately, this may result in intermittent loss of connectivity (for a few seconds) while our switch tables adjust themselves to the new topology. We apologize for the inconvenience, and we’ll try to make the impact as minimal as possible.
Additionally, we will be moving the shell server (Shell.sonic.net, aka Bolt.sonic.net) tonight at 10:30pm. That will be a physical move into our new facility, which should take less than 30 minutes. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience. -Scott, Brian, Ian, Devin, Logan, Eli, Asa
