UK: Coventry [cov1] uk-cov1 core switch issue

The uk-cov1 core switch has experienced a software bug and is routing L3 in software rather than hardware-offloaded. Performance and stability is not currently impacted, however we need to reboot the switch to resolve the bug. We will reboot on 2021/06/18 at 02:00 UTC, at which time all services in uk-cov1 will encounter a brief 30-120 second outage.

UK: Reading [rdg1] uk-rdg1 core router reload

Due to an unexpected memory leak we're performing an immediate patch and reboot to both A + B core routers in our uk-rdg1 location. We expect a blip of 30 seconds during the router delegation from B to A.

  • Both routers are now patched and reloaded.

  • We are now patching the B router. No interruption is expected.

    UK network incident

    We are investigating the cause of a network outage to our uk-lon2 and uk-cov1 locations between 13:52-13:56 UTC.

  • We have not detected a recurrence of this incident so we have restored service to this transit provider.

  • We are seeing a repeat of this incident in multiple locations. We are routing around the problematic transit provider until a permanent solution is proposed.

  • The outage, which started 13:52 UTC, was traced to a transit provider's configuration change that caused some packets to be silently dropped. Our network team responded and successfully worked around the issue at 13:56 UTC.
