[ris-int] [ripe.net #124141] AS3333 <> RIS problems over the weekend?
Mon Nov 7 15:00:35 CET 2005
One of those rare occasions where someone from Nanog uses RIS, but now he got confused by the vast number of updates coming to RIS from RIPE NCC (AS3333) over the weekend. Could one of you enlighten him (or the list at large) what caused this? -- Rene ---------- Forwarded message ---------- Message-ID: <2ed0bc680511061121v288974f9jdf3bf99466bb6568 at mail.gmail.com> From: NetSecGuy <netsecguy at gmail.com> Sender: owner-nanog at merit.edu To: nanog at merit.edu Date: Sun, 6 Nov 2005 14:21:00 -0500 Subject: Re: BGP terminology question At the risk of sounding like a total moron, can anyone explain what is happening here? This is from RIS, specifically RRC00.

It seems to be announcing it's entire table every 5 minutes. This started late Friday and ended a few hours ago. On 11/6/05, Patrick W.
