Dear client,

Please note that this is merely an informational notification, no incidents in our network and hosting infrastructure were detected. However, we felt the need to post news on this outage regarding the power-grid directly adjecent to the DBA DC in Amsterdam. A midstation was affected over the Leander power network at 14.19 CEST.

At this moment we can confirm that the DBA datacenter in which we have presence did not show any sign of outage due to the midstation failure. Also none of our transit providers seem to be directly affected either. Neither do we see any decrease in bandwidth throughput.

We received notifications from the DBA hosting facility that they were running on backup power since the start of the incident 14.19 CEST and have shifted back to the power grid at 15.39 CEST with no incidents reported.

DBA staff has been present during the power-grid outage to monitor the situation throughout and will continue to do so in the coming hours. They confirm no services were affected and they report everything went as it should regarding the shift to and from UPS/Aggregate when at the given times.

Affects: Redundancy DBC

At 9.00 CEST the darkfiber going from DBC to Globalswitch Amsterdam (GSA) went down.

After having contact with the 3rd party maintaining the fiber a cable cut was discovered along the fiber in question, they are now sending engineers to the location of the cut.

At this moment we do not have an ETR available.

Currently all traffic is send over the other half of our ring between DBC - EQX-AM7, we do not expect issues.

Update 21:17:
Fibre crews are on-site and are currently trying to locate the joint which is buried in a new road scheme. There are construction crews either side of the joint location.

Update 22:00:
Fibre Crews are testing now on the closest joints to the fault. In parallel it is investigated if it is possible to move the route of the affected services to working spare fibres.

Update 00:14:
Due to the local conditions on site at the fault location further
digging works are necessary causing additional delay to the restoration.
We will keep you updated.

Update 9:00:
euNetworks Customer Care sees most of the alarms have cleared on our systems.
However, one Metro System remains down.
We have informed our local fibre provider to check these fibres with high priority to ensure fast restoration.
Please have your services checked and your ports reset.
In case of any problems please report back to us so we can ensure a fast resolution.

Update 15:00:
We have been informed that your service was affected by a fibre cut caused by civil works. There has been a delay in restoring your services as it was a partially fibre cut and it was very hard to locate the damage site. Due to the size of the construction site and to restore your services quicker we needed to move them to an alternate fiber pair. This has caused some extra delay as additional splicing was needed.

Our darkfiber running from DBC to GSA is now back to being fully functional again and the darkfiber ring now back to being redundant.

Affects: Redundancy DBC

At 13.10 CEST the darkfiber going from DBC to Equinix-AM7 (EQX-AM7) went down.

After having contact with the 3rd party maintaining the fiber a cable cut was discovered along the fiber in question, they are now sending engineers to the location of the cut.

Update 15:35:
Splicing crew has restored the fiber bundle and the darkfiber is now back online.

Affects: Redundancy DBC

At 19:30 CEST one of the feeds located at the Globalswitch Amsterdam datacenter (GSA) shutdown because of a blown fuse, the reason was a defective router power module.

Because of the feed outage the amplifier going from GSA to Databarn Capelle (DBC) lost one of it power supplies, the device is connected redundantly but the backup power supply made the amplifier stop accepting signals.

We immediately discussed this with the vendor of the Amplifier and after a short debug where asked to proceed with the restart of the complete amplifier after which the connection came back online.

We will be discussing this further with the vendor.

Router 1 at GlobalSwitch Amsterdam (GSA) experienced a failover from the primary to secondary management controller. The failover itself happened at 11.19 and toke several seconds.

Several hundred BGP sessions flapped and are currently exchanging routes. During this you might see routes changing and rerouting.

Update 13:10: The routing table is fully loaded and the system appears to be stable.

#477 Darkfiber outage

End : 2017-05-12 09:00:00

Affects: Redundancy DBC

There is a fiber cut on the darkfiber connecting Databarn Capelle (DBC) to Globalswitch Amsterdam (GSA).

Engineers are dispatched to the location of the probable cut of the fiber.

Because of the outage some higher latency or small packetloss can occur.


Update 2017-05-11 22.20:
The darkfiber has been re-established again using a new path, because this is a completely new fiber over a different path throughout the Netherlands the amplifiers need to be re-tuned for the new fiber, on the side of GSA this has been done now after which the fiber stabilized.

Engineers are currently on their way to DBC to do the same tuning there, during that tuning you will notice some packetloss as this can only be done live.

Once the tuning at DBC has been done we expect the darkfiber to be fully working again.


Update 2017-05-11 23.35:
The DBC side of the darkfiber has also been tuned and optimized after which the connection DBC-GSA is fully functional again now.

We also received word from euNetworks that they are having a maintenance on the darkfiber between DBC-EQX-AM7 between 0.00 and 09.00 CEST, we do not expect any issues during this maintenance.

After their maintenance both darkfibers should be fully functional again.


Update 2017-05-12 00.10:
During this incident the fiber was already relocated over the west-side of The Netherlands. Therefore the works planned for next week in case #474 is already finished and hereby cancelled.

Affects: Routing GSA & IP Transit customers GSA

Wednesday 17th of May 2017 at 19:00 until 21:00 we will have a maintenance on the router at Global Switch Amsterdam (GSA), all traffic will be rerouted and should not be affected.

Transit Customers GSA without redundant setup may experience outage at this moment.

Due to the type of maintenance we will have to bring down the router for re-adjustments.

We strive to have the downtime as short as possible and expect the downtime on this location to be less than 1 hours.

Update:
We have re-scheduled the maintenance from 17th of May 2017 at 12:00 until 16:00, to 17th of May 2017 at 19:00 until 21:00 due to some adjustments in the maintenance.
