#763 closed defect (ouch)

Is the Telus IPv6 transit reliable?

Description

I ask because I've been having a continuing problem connecting to my home server (toccata.fugue.com) over IPv6.   I am having no trouble connecting over IPv4.   I am seeing >50% packet loss to toccata.fugue.com over IPv6 from the IETF network, and 0% packet loss if I connect to another IPv4-connected host and then ping toccata.fugue.com over IPv6 from there.   This may be just broken peering somewhere out on the IPv6 internet that has nothing to do with our connection, but it's definitely causing me operational problems.

Ted,

Ok, this is crossing the streams, but with my Ops @ ISC hat on, I can tell you that ISC's been under a pretty significant DDoS since very early this morning. Alas, your issues have nothing to do with the IETF net and entirely due to ISC being pounded. We've been working on it for coming up on 8 hrs now, and may be making a bit of headway, but not a ton.

Ted,

At least coming from above.net, I start seeing packet loss at isc-above-oc3.pao.isc.org, and the loss increases at int-0-1-0-1.r1.pao1.isc.org, even for IPv4. Is it possible that what you're seeing is simply that there are uncongested routes and congested routes, and your path of "going somewhere else and then pinging" is taking an uncongested route?

Bill
