From Hosting Matters on their emergency forum here:
We are currently seeing Level3/WCG timeouts in multiple locations that are preventing requests from reaching the network. This is also affecting the remote monitor, which will show multiple servers down although they are not in fact down.
If you are affected, you may find that traces over Level3 are going outside their normal routes, into the northeastern US area (Washington, DC, to New York, to Philadelphia) before dying off.
There is nothing we can do about this issue, as it is well outside our network that the problem is occurring. We have, however, passed along a note to our upstream requesting that they pass along our traces to whatever contacts they have.
Update: it appears that Level3 has entirely dropped our route announcement, based on the research done thus far, which of course will result in route timeouts. We're in contact with our upstream on this, which we've elevated to emergency status.
Further information to follow as we have it.
Blogger went down for some time today and my Time Warner Internet connection is out?
Anyone know what is going on?
