You got me on that.  I can't help you.  I doesn't look like we've lost
an IBGP connection since Nov 5 at 00:06:37 (E147).  :-)

We only lost a number of EBGP sessions between AS690 and our Cisco
concentrators.  We did lose quite a few EBGP sessions to other providers.

It's usually a year or more between anything at all of the magnitude
of an IBGP collapse on our net since about 1992 when rcp_routed
managed 3 backbone wide core dumps in a week so my experience with
this sort of things is quite limited.  We still do find an occasional
gated bug though.

I defer to the experts.  :-)


ps - faster routers in the world.  yeah right.  so much for the
Bradner tests.

:-) :-)
