2014-09-04: CAT 2 Planned NETWORK Maintenance – TUK (Resolved)

EVENT TYPE: CAT 2 Planned NETWORK Maintenance
EVENT START: 00:00 hrs – 2014-09-04
EVENT FINISH: 02:00 hrs – 2014-09-04
IMPACT/RISK: Medium – Moderate Service Interrupting

 

SUMMARY: Reboot 4th floor Core Router for mandatory code upgrade.

This should not impact connectivity, but as the Seattle cores re-establish BGP sessions with Tukwila there will be a brief period where CPU spikes as the tables are re-built. At most you should see a period of potentially increased latency, and maybe a small amount of packet loss. No individual period of service degradation should last more than 10 minutes, and a total of two predicted periods of potentially impacted service (one for each Seattle core router).

 

Maintenance Completed 12:15

If you have questions or issues please send email to support@dfcolo.com to open a ticket.

2014-08-21: CAT 2 Planned NETWORK Maintenance – Westin

EVENT TYPE: CAT 2 Planned NETWORK Maintenance
EVENT START: 00:01 hrs – 2014-08-21
EVENT FINISH: 02:00 hrs – 2014-08-21
IMPACT/RISK: Medium – Moderate Service Interrupting

 

Maintenance has been completed and the maintenance window is now closed.

The move was accomplished and all maintenance tasks were completed successfully with the exception of our connection to XO Communications.  The new DF Network has four egress paths therefore the lack of connectivity to XO is not impacting the performance of our network.

DF NetOps has engaged XO Communications to re-establish connectivity with their router.

We are reading poor light levels coming from XO which is preventing the interface from re-establishing.

If you have questions or issues please send email to support@dfcolo.com to open a ticket.
