DESCRIPTION
Due to the recent outages we are needing to investigate in more detail some of our network infrastructure. We are planning to do this from 2AM on Thursday 17th September, and plan to complete the work by 5AM. So as to fully understand and fix the cause of some of our recent problems we may cause some disruption to services. There may be line drops and short periods where there may be limited connectivity. We will attempt to keep this to a minimum, and will update this post throughout the period.
Resolution: This work has been completed. There are a couple of outstanding things we still need to work on, but on the whole this has been successful. The main thing being the reboot of a core switch which has fixed most of the problems we've had recently.

DESCRIPTION
We're investigating the loss of a number of TalkTalk connected lines. Updates to follow shortly.
Resolution: Summary and further work

Here is a brief summary of this incident and what we are planning to do to improve matters.

  1. 01:12 Whilst we were running on a single interconnect to TalkTalk due to a previous incident, TalkTalk carried out planned work on the working interconnect causing all TalkTalk lines to drop. (Unfortunately is wasn't made clear to us that this work was happening, otherwise we would have been more prepared and this incident wouldn't have happened)
  2. 01:52 We bought our 2nd interconnect back in to service and about 70% of lines reconnected
  3. 01:52 about 30% of lines still had problems staying connected
  4. 05:37 After lots of investigation which led to use removing some internal LACP links and another 17.5% of lines connected.
  5. 06:16 Further work our side restored about 10% of lines, leaving a further 2.5% offline
  6. 12:00 TalkTalk's Planned work overran and their work was reverted and completed.
  7. Early afternoon: The remaining 2.5% of lines reconnected eventually - these were most problematic and seemed to have either stuck or blocked sessions within the TalkTalk network - a problem probably a result of TalkTalk's planned work and was resolved by TalkTalk clearing sessions manually after their planned work.
We have scheduled the early hours of Thursday 17th September to investigate further one of our core network switches that has been the cause of some of these problems today and last week: https://aastatus.net/37312

We do apologise to those affected by this incident, especially those who didn't reconnect successfully early on.

We're investigating line drops that started at around 4PM and is affecting various broadband lines.
Resolution: We'll be investigating the actual cause of this incident - there were a number of different and separate events that occurred at nearly the same time (just after 4PM on Sunday) and we'll be investigating them to see if they can explain this incident. We'll post an update to this post with further explanation as and when we have one.
