We routinely monitor the traffic dynamics of about 40 BGP feeds at http://gradus.renesys.com, looking for things like this. There was a fair amount of garden-variety spiky noise last night, including small globally cross-correlated withdrawal bursts at a few points, but nothing that I would characterize as truly odd. Some reserved AS leakage, but no poison routes, and no sign of the announcement/withdrawal storms that generally accompany them. There could certainly have been specific problems with specific networks or providers that wouldn't lead to globally correlated instability, and therefore wouldn't have triggered an alert from us. If we have a BGP feed from the company in question, we generally catch incipient instability even in the absence of correlation and can issue them a private warning. Hint, hint. --jim
