John Heidemann 2013. Active Probing of Edge Networks: Outages During Hurricane Sandy. Talk given at NANOG57 as part of panel hosted by James Cowie.

Abstract

No formal abstract, but this talk summarizes our analysis of outages in edge networks at the time of Hurricane Sandy. This analysis showed U.S. networks had double the outage rate (from 0.2% to 0.4%) on 2012-10-30, the day after Sandy landfall, and recovered after four days. The talk was part of the panel “Internet Impacts of Hurricane Sandy”, moderated by James Cowie, with presentations by John Heidemann, USC/Information Sciences Institute; Emile Aben, RIPE NCC; Patrick Gilmore, Akamai; Doug Madory, Renesys
