We have noticed a single user that is generating some 50,000 connections on BolehRoute which is clogging the server up.
We are performing tests to identify this user and terminate him. This would explain the slowdowns BolehRoute faces from time to time.
This is a short notice to say that we will be upgrading the BolehRoute 1 server over the next few days and this may result in a short downtime while the new hardware is being installed.
23 July 2009
Update 12:22AM: The server is now currently being upgraded. New hardware is in and configuring the OS.
Update 12:30AM: The server is now up and operational again. We are still monitoring it and seeing if it is stable with the new configuration/hardware. A few reboots may be done but is not forseen.
It appears that on certain routes at least, Streamyx has recovered from yesterday’s slowdown. Luxembourg and Canadian server pings are back into normal ranges again.
Please post your comments to confirm the same or if you are still experiencing problems!
We have noticed a general drop in speed starting at about 2AM GMT+8 20 July 2009 which appears to affect our Canadian and Luxembourg servers. UK also showed a slight dip during the same time
We suspect a Streamyx routing issue as the Canadian and Luxembourg servers are hosted in totally different places and to have a drop on both at the same time indicates a Streamyx rather than a host problem but we are working to confirm this.
You may view our Server Status page for full details.
Update: We have pinged our Luxembourg and Canadian servers from other parts of the world which returned perfect results which indicates a Streamyx routing issue.
There appears to be a massive general internet slowdown in Penang being reported by our customers.
Will keep you updated. No word from TM on this slowdown.
