The Gandi Community

(Resolved) Network disruption

This am two of Gandi’s peering locations from Paris dropped, and began to “flap”, or come up and go down again rapidly. As the routes were re-calculated, our core switches became quite busy for a few minutes, slowing down transport. Some customers reported an interruption in service. 

The peering locations stabilized and our routers followed soon after. The entire incident lasted slightly less than 20 minutes. 

Our teams noticed the issue and decided to allow the automated systems to recover without intervention, which they did. No hosted systems were taken offline, but connectiviity was interrupted for some customers.
