Some customers informed us about connectivity issues over DE-CIX routes. We have contacted our responsible upstream in order to shut down relevant sessions.
We're currently awaiting a response. If we dont have a response within the next 10 minutes, we will disable the session and reroute traffic on our own.
//Update 17:05: Traffic is now flowing over alternative paths.
//Update 19:21: According to Core-Backbone, the problem has been fixed on the side of DE-CIX. Routing is back to normal.
Official upstream statements:
"There is currently a problem across the DE-CIX Frankfurt peering LAN. We are experiencing an issue affecting backbone links. Engineers are currently investigating the matter and working on the solution. We'll keep you updated with their progress."
"The engineers have located a potential cause for this event on interconnection links from DE-CIX 12 (Equinix FR5) and are currently working on a solution. There is no ETR at present as we are continuing to monitor in case any additional problem is found."
