ICMP packets delayed.

Wed Jun 12 14:12:25 PDT 2002 — ICMP packets delayed. A problem with our Black Diamond switch is delaying ICMP packets to parts of the Sonic.net network. This does not impact the delivery of actual data. We are currently watching to see if the problem will go away on its own, or whether or not a reboot of the switch will be necessary. -Scott and Kelsey

Update: Inspection of Netflow statistics for one of our routers revealed that it was locked in a deadly embrace of continuous ICMP packets with the Black Diamond switch. Problem solved. -Nathan, Scott, Kelsey
