I don't know if it was just at my end but yesterday evening I noticed that my broadband connection had slowed right down and this was right across the board not just at this Forum website. Did anybody else notice a slowdown as well just out of curiosity? I have just logged on now this morning and everything is thankfully back to normal.
I would just like to say that I have NEVER seen this Forum go as quick as it has over the last few weeks and my thanks go to ALL concerned working in the background. Well done people the new upgraded server is doing a grand job!
Morning to you as well. It must have been a 'local' issue then! To be honest it was so slow it was like being on dial-up with continual '504 Connection timed-out' errors so after a few minutes I gave up and logged off! Back here this morning everything is okay again thank goodness.
Routing Issue Some customers today may have experienced problems accessing some websites, mainly in the USA.
There have been significant problems today with 'flap damping' which appear to be resulting from a routing table problem within the American Department of Defence Network.
We also noticed a misconfiguration within two of our own core routers because of this which we have resolved.
Customers should now be able to view websites that were affected by this issue. If any customers are still experiencing problems we would ask them to contact us via the normal channels so we can investigate further.
