Thu Mar 10 18:11:34 PST 2005 — Update on Network Event. Upon further investigation we were able to determine that the problem was not caused by a failure inside our network but that our L2 transport provider between Santa Rosa and San Jose was flooding both ends of our circuit with more than 100kpps of broadcast traffic saturating the Juniper RE CPUs at both ends. The CPU congestion on these two routers lead to some of our internal and external BGP and IGP sessions flapping leading to general network instability. Once the source of the problem was isolated and the link shut down the network healed itself. -Kelsey, Nathan, John, Zeke and Jared.
