On Friday, 27 August, at 08:41 (UTC), RIPE NCC staff involved in the
Routing Information Service (RIS) project conducted an Internet
routing experiment in conjunction with a research group from Duke
University in the United States.
The goal of this experiment was to further global understanding of
Internet routing behaviour, specifically the use of optional
attributes in Border Gateway Protocol (BGP). The experiment ended as
scheduled at 09:08 (UTC). Shortly after this, we discovered that the
experiment had caused an unexpected and unintended negative impact on
Internet operations, lasting for approximately 30 minutes.
An article has now been published that provides more information on
the experiment and its effect on the network:
