On-going LINX connectivity issues
ON-GOING LINX CONNECTIVITY ISSUES
We have been seeing intermittent issues with traffic crossing the London Internet Exchange (LINX) peering network over the last two days, which has been causing low levels of packet loss when routing traffic to some UK locations.
LINX are currently investigating what appears to be a faulty port within one of their 160GB Fibre trunks. Whilst this is on-going, we have downed our LINX peering and all traffic will now be routing over alternative paths.
We will be keeping a close eye on the situation and will only re-enable our LINX peering once we are certain that all issues have been resolved.
Please be aware that the issues we're referring to lie with the LINX peering network, and not something we have direct control over. This is why we have taken the action to disable the connection until further notice.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please raise a ticket or give our support team a call.
