Network under load, eta?

I guess it could mean that but after said download they still have time to download something else, but anyway I do agree it probs wouldn't make much of a difference.

It makes not difference. As a time average it's the same - they just get the content faster, holding up a portion of bandwidth for proportionally less time. It's actually better that way around as you have less simultaneous transfers.

Ouch and South Koreans they would block the link from paris via london and the usa horrendously.

Network performance has certainly improved a lot in the past few months, even including the US load.

When will the asian links be restored, or haven't you figured out how to stop the FTTH Japs from leeching everything?

Almost all of the links are 10Gbps but it's easy to see the few 1Gbps ones - for example look at Vienna.

13% (1.3Gbps) is coming into Vienna, 6% is going into the VIX and 33% + 37% into UPC peering (2 links). Obviously not all are 10Gbps because that would be 6+33+37=76%

VIX 10Gbps 6% = 600Mbps
UPC 1Gbps 33% = 330Mbps
UPC 1Gbps 37% = 370Mbps

600+330+370=1300Mbps

A legend showing the connection capacity would be nice too. OVH seem to like to boast about it so showing it on the weathermap would be great for that and for us too I like graphs and diagrams

virtuallynathan
27-04-2012, 14:08
Yes, I'd imagine that is still correct. It should probably just be a single line representing the aggregate.

Andy
27-04-2012, 11:36
Wow, they need consolidating lol. I remember being told each arrow represents 10Gbps, is this still the case?

Duideka

Haha, the new network map looks insane.

Additions:
6x 10Gbps rbx-g1-a9 > fra-1-6k
6x 10Gbps rbx-g2-a9 > fra-5-6k
8x 10Gbps rbx-g1-a9 > ams-1-6k

Quite a few in the US (CHI to SNJ, SNJ to PAO, NWK to DAL, NWK to CHI, and LON to NWK).

All still need upgrading to take advantage of that capacity being added.

Octave has just tweeted about that very issue:

"OVH USA activated peering in Palo Alto, CA and it is now at capacity, so we will upgrade to 2x10G."

This will, in turn, create cascading congestion I suspect.

It looks like the US network is on its way to congestion, even before there are servers there.



Good to see London upgraded again, now we just need Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Warsaw, Brussels and RBX->GSW to be upgraded next :P

The main issue now seems to be that the peerings into LINX are over saturated, as they've not been upgraded at all (I believe there was some mention of this though nothing seems to have happened).
The LINX 226 peering is especially saturated, even at non peak times.

Just wondering if there are plans in place to increase capacity here, and if so, when it's likely to happen?

Yea, the doubled capacity to London didn't last long, neither did the doubled capacity to GlobalSwitch. The map also doesn't show that PLIX in Warsaw runs maxed out for a good chunk of the day - but I believe they are redoing their infrastructure in Warsaw (and Brussels too).

Its worth noting that Im still seeing packet loss issues from my server to various UK isp's (http://vm1.drefsab.co.uk/cgi-bin/smo...t=Net.Echo_Zen), it happens every night as you can see from the 10 day graph.

Last night constantly between 2% and 8% loss (http://vm1.drefsab.co.uk/cgi-bin/smo...t=Net.Echo_Zen) though I was busy and was not able to perform a trace route at the time.

Is there any update on progress on this?

virtuallynathan
13-03-2012, 17:31
According to Octave they are deploying 4x Cisco Catalyst C6509 with the SUP-2T supervisor engine with up to 56x10G ports in Frankfurt and Amsterdam. The current routers in Amsterdam are using 18x10G ports and 24x10G each currently.
Frankfurt routers are currently using 29x10G and 27x10G each. I guess the upgrade will allow them to double the capacity in the future.

It looks like the links added between RBX-G2-A9 and GSW-G1-A9 were not enough, as it is still running at >85% load during peak. More links to FREE and SFR on TH2-1-6K would also be good... they are quite loaded as well. As you guys said above, RBX-LON, RBX-AMS, RBX-FRA and RBX-BRU are still clogged. In this time since this post was started, connections to PLIX (Polish Internet Exchange) have also become heavily congested.

Nothing you said was "fact". You're speaking to somebody well into their fourth year with VirginMedia because of the excellent service and consistent speeds.

You're posting in a thread where OVH have openly admitted their links are saturated, where I clearly stated I was getting full 50Mb from other speed tests (and later posted images), where I posted a screenshot from the weathermap that showed links at 94% and 96% utilisation, and where the poor speed tests from Roubaix were corroborated by another user on a different ISP that uses different technologies to VM.

My ISP is clearly not the issue, so "your isp explains the speed" is not a fact.

VM aren't crap but aren't great either, not now that they have STM as well as their recent application throttling as well.

No point giving more speed if nobody can fricking use it. I don't get ISP's at all these days.

I'm on Be*There, 8.3Mbps is my max download speed (9.8Mbps sync) and I can still download more than a VM user on 10Mbps can because of STM being applied twice a day. The average speed in 24 hours if you hit STM twice in the first hour of when the STM monitoring period starts would be around 7Mbps.

Sad really.

25-02-2012, 02:45
The network between Roubaix and Paris was upgraded tonight, adding 80Gbps of capacity. The older Cisco 6500's were replaced with Cisco ASR9000's which can support 24x10G or 2x100G per slot as opposed to the 4x10G for the Cisco 6500 (without SUP-2T). The older Cisco 6500 routers appear to have been moved to handle only external peering/transit connections (some of which probably need to be upgraded, as they are running at greater than 90% at non-peak times - most notably Global Crossing and Tata). The new fibers are not yet active, and need to have some optical properties adjusted according to the OVH status site.
