Aangezien de waardes sinds vanmorgen verder zijn verslechterd zijn wij genoodzaakt om met spoed metingen en reparatiewerkzaamheden te laten uitvoeren door de leverancier van deze glasvezels.
De kans is dus aanzienlijk dat het traject Steenbergen > Rotterdam in de loop van de dag voor enige tijd niet beschikbaar zal zijn. "

Translation:
"Since yesterday afternoon we have experienced higher values on the fiber optic route between Steenbergen and Rotterdam. Since the values have deteriorated further since this morning, we are forced to have measurements and repair work carried out urgently by the supplier of these glass fibers.

#755 Outage DBA

Posted: 2019-02-16 07:58

Start: 2019-02-16 06:35:00
End : 2019-02-25 14:42:00

Affects: Routing DBA

At 6:35 CET we had a crash of the linecards in both routers R1 and R2 DBA causing also the BGP to our transit providers to flap.

After the cards came back online all routes also need to be relearned from all of our transit providers where packetloss or unreachabillity might have occured.

We've gathered logs for our vendor who is assisting us in debugging this issue.

Our sincere apologies for any issues caused by this outage.

At this moment the debugging process is still ongoing.

Update: 2019-02-21, 12:11:
While having close contact with our vendor, they have reported that the crash is happening within the IPv6 stack. They however were not able to resolve the issue at this moment.

We have looked for alternative options and did some tests. As this phase is completed, we would like to inform you that we are going to separate the IPv6 from our current routers away from IPv4. IPv6 will run independently.

Due to the recent crashes and our vendor yet to provide a patch against this issue, we will be performing the move of customer IPv6 to the new platform on DBA tomorrow (Friday, 22 Februari 2019) starting from 7:00. We expect to finish up around 12:00.

During this time, each IPv6 block can expect a downtime up to 5 minutes.

The IPv4 will be untouched and unaffected by this urgent maintenance.
There are no changes required at the customer side, please do note that when you do have IPv6 BGP sessions with us, 1 session will stay down until a later maintenance.


Update: 2019-02-22, 11:43:
We have finished the move of the customers IPv6 to the new platform.

At Monday, 25 Februari 2019, starting from 7:00, we will be moving the transit IPv6 sessions. We do not expect any downtimes and will be carefully moved. The process may take up until at latest 17:00.

As this is IPv6 only, IPv4 is not affected by the move.

Update: 2019-02-25, 14:42:
All transits and peering connectivity is moved and officially disconnected IPv6 from the old platform. IPv6 is now running independently.

For the status on the bug, we recommend you to keep an eye on the post: https://noc.nforce.com/notifications/item/749

Affects: Traffic hosting

At 22:40 CET, 1 Februari 2019 we have noticed a linecard crash on Router 1 of the datacenter Databarn Amsterdam.

As the linecard restored quickly after the crash there might have been interruptions of services due to the failover process.

We have made dumps of the crash logs and provided the information to the vendor for further investigation while we continue to monitor stability of the linecard.

Update 2019-02-02 8:35 CET:
We experienced another linecard crash at 2019-02-01 22:45 CET, which may briefly (~ 2 minutes) caused packetloss on your services in DBA.

We experienced another linecard crash last night at 3:13 AM CET, which may briefly (~ 2 minutes) caused packetloss on your services in DBA, this crashdump was added to the case with our vendor.

Update 2019-02-13 8:03 CET:
Around 18:28 CET, 12 Februari 2019, we have found our other linecard of our DBA router has crashed. We have submitted crashdump as well as other dumps to provide as much information as we can.

Update 2019-02-16 06:35 CET:
We experienced a linecard crash of both linecards in R1 and R2 of DBA. where also the BGP with our transits was dropped which needed to be re-converged after coming back online, this may have caused packetloss or unreachabillity.

Update 2019-02-18 04:52 CET:
We experienced linecard crashes both on R1 and R2 of DBC. As the stacktraces are exactly the same as the crashes of DBA, we expect this to be the same issue. Currently the vendor is still investigating the debugs.

Update 2019-04-18 14:00 CEST:
We have received an update from the vendor, having the issue found and solved. A new firmware will be released including the fix.
Once we have received the firmware, we will begin planning in firmware upgrades.
