Atlanta - Upstream Internet Flap
Incident Report for MacStadium
We identified a momentary upstream BGP network drop related to several IPv4 subnets in Atlanta at ~ 8:00 AM EST (12:00 GMT).

Upon investigation, we were able to validate that our primary upstream carrier was making routing adjustments in an unplanned maintenance on their side, causing BGP re-convergence to alternate paths, and in return, portions of the MacStadium Atlanta network to become unreachable for minutes at a time.

Related to this incident, MacStadium will be proactively communicating performing a couple planned maintenance activities in the very near future to obviate this carrier, and further enhance all Atlanta internet routing to ensure these type of events do not re-occur.
