'[OT:] Internet Status'
2004\11\24@151054 by John J. McDonough

I generally keep an eye on the Internet condition so I can interpret my own
site's stats in that context.  Today the entire Internet, with the exception
of North America, seems to be struggling worse than I have seen, and North
America's response time seems to have just spiked.

Does anyone know what is happening today?  The Storm Center doesn't seem to
be reporting anything that would cause this, unless it's this Java exploit,
but that wouldn't seem to explain it.  Asia is reporting a 15%(!) packet
loss.

Looking at  http://www.internettrafficreport.com/main.htm  I don't see
anything particularly out of the ordinary.
http://isc.sans.org/infocon.php is in the green

What site are you using for data?

Could the 15% loss to Asia be in part to the Chinese government's firewall?

Those are the sites I watch.  Seeing everyone yellow except NA is pretty
unusual, and the current index of 53 for SA is very unusual.  That spike in
NA seems to have subsided.  Also, although Asia is frequently a little
rough, I don't recall seeing the packet loss up to 16% like it is now.

I noticed that SANS is green.  Usually when the Internet takes a hit it's
the result of some sort of attack so you see something interesting at SANS.
But nothing there now.

Quick check:
Internet Health Report (shows latency over major backbone providers)
http://www2.internetpulse.com/1/
Nothing abnormal there...

CERT (US Computer Emergency Readiness Team) says
http://www.cert.org/nav/index_red.html
www.us-cert.gov/current/current_activity.html
nothing unusual is going on

SANS Internet Storm Center
http://isc.sans.org/
reports nothing unusual

Microsoft
http://www.microsoft.com/security/default.mspx
doesn't have any unusual patches available

SecurityFocus
http://securityfocus.com/
Is still reporting on the "keylogging != wiretapping" case - nothing
unusual there

Infosecdaily
http://www.infosecdaily.net/
has no new news

And bugtraq
http://securityfocus.com/archive/1
Doesn't seem to have any big found bugs currently reported.

So I don't understand what problem there might be.  I suspect that
holiday internet traffic tonight will spike slightly (but noticably) as
people look up weather and travel related information for the US
Thanksgiving holiday.

If there's a severe problem elsewhere int he world, I'd suspect that a
key backbone might be dark, but people would report that instantly if
that were the case.

Probably will find out tomorrow if it's anything especially unusual.
