This paper examines the latency in Internet path failure, failover and repair due to the convergence properties of inter-domain routing. Unlike switches in the public telephony network which exhibit failover on the order of milliseconds, our experimental measurements show that inter-domain routers in the packet switched Internet may take tens of minutes to(More)
In this paper, we describe an experimental study of Internet topological stability and the origins of failure in Internet protocol backbones. The stability of end-to-end Internet paths is dependent both on the underlying telecommunication switching system, as well as the higher level software and hardware c omponents speciic to the Internet's(More)
— This paper examines the role inter-domain topology and routing policy play in the process of delayed Internet routing convergence. In recent work, we showed that the Internet lacks effective inter-domain path fail-over. Unlike circuit-switched networks which exhibit fail-over on the order of milliseconds , we found Internet backbone routers may take tens(More)
