Tue Aug 4 19:34:48 UTC 1998
At approximately 1830 UTC [12:00 noon PDT] globalcenter
[AS3549] started announcing full routes to peers at most
exchange points with an AS-Path of 3549 [customer-as]
This was due to a misconfiguration by a downstream customer
and the peering session filters during a customer turn-up.
This incident started at approximately 1830 UTC and abated
approximately 1705 UTC.
It appears that the BGP withdrawal propogation is quite
latent due to improper congestion due to this event, but
the withdrawls are processing.
We apologize for any inconvenience this caused you or your
We are reavaluating our turn-up policies and routing filters
to prevent a problem such as this from occuring again.
Please contact our network operations center
(noc at globalcenter.net) with any questions or concerns.
