On Tuesday evening, our US link will be switched to the custom
queuing router, Kinnegad.hea.net, and a three-way link to the backbone
will be put in place.
This is part of the continuing backbone upgrade at the NOC; after the
reintroduction of Custom Queuing, the final stage will be to move to
Heuston's replacement, Andel. The reintroduction of Kinnegad will
ease the impact of this last move.
Traffic to and from the US will be unreliable during the at-risk
period. An actual outage of only a few minutes is expected between
18:00 and 20:00 Tuesday. Traffic to the INEX, JANET and Ten-34, and
traffic within HEAnet, will not be affected.
Reconfigure routers. Enable three-way link. Connect MCI to
Kinnegad. Monitor routing. Enable custom queuing.
Time to Fix:
Sched. 2 hours.
