Packet loss on XO's network

Terri,

 

Except the initial traces show that hop 6 is clean.  If the problem really
started at hop 4 then the issue would likely show up in hop 6 (unless there
was a hashing on the return path based on the far end router's source IP
that caused just some traffic to be thrown away).

 

Hop 4 and 5 always have packet loss - I believe it's due to ICMPv6 rate
limiters protecting their CPU:

Subject: Packet loss on XO's network

 

Since ~11:08 am Central our monitoring system has been reporting
intermittent HTTPv6 timeouts to www.sprint.net <http://www.sprint.net> ,
www.qwest.com <http://www.qwest.com> , enterprise.com, and enterprise.ca.
It goes bad for a while and then clears.

 

Using mtr, these all have XO's network in common, and the packet loss to the
endpoint sustains over 40%.  Seems to be between 2610:18:18b:c000::11 and
mcr1.minneapolis-mn.us.xo.net [2610:18::30b8]
