Sun Mar 12 18:57:59 PST 2000 — We had news.sonic.net (Typhoon) on our 12-port 100MB switch. Unfortunately, the traffic bound for Typhoon saturated the 100MB link to our gigaswitch, causing instability in our switch fabric. We’ve moved Typhoon to our core Black Diamond switch, and rebooted all our switches, as well as a few hubs. This caused selective unreachability of about 30 seconds intermittently across our network. Also, one hub was down for 15 minutes before we caught it, which caused some authentication errors in the 1001 hunt group. The network is now fixed. -Scott, Eli, and Dane (the switch bootin’ fiend)
