Internet traffic disruption.

Fri Feb 9 11:53:08 PST 2007 — Internet traffic disruption. We’re currently tracking an issue inside one of our upstream provider’s networks that manifests itself as an inability to receive packets larger than a certain size. 1476 byte packets appear to be forwarded correctly, while 1477 byte and longer packets are dropped. We’ve identified the broken equipment in the provider’s network and have re-routed traffic to mitigate the problem. We are also working with the provider to solve the issue. We’ll post an update when more information is available. -Nathan and Kelsey

Update Fri Feb 9 14:42:10 PST 2007: Our upstream provider has fixed the trouble, which turned out to be a partially failed router in San Jose. -Nathan
