The central problem is asymmetry of traffic between GTEI and the
hosting companies, Curran said. Exodus pumps many
times more bits to GTEI than are sent the other way.
This "problem" is easily solved. Compare the list of smurf amp nets to a
bgp dump and determine which nets are behind AS 1. Send ICMP echo packets
to those nets.
There are of course many other relatively trivial ways to lessen the
differential between ingress and egress. Thus the "central problem" is
really something different, but who didn't already know that?
