01:59<cj>can it be found inside linode dashboard?

06:51<chesty>I think bob asked that because mentioned linode disabled their dns server due to dmca, but I read the tweet thread he posted and epik made me cringe with their buzzword speak.
08:16<rsdehart>120% UPTIME
08:19<chesty>host your strategic domains on our industrial strength dns product to lower your total cost of ownership
08:21<chesty>I reckon you could have 120% uptime, if you bought a months of hosting and it ran for 37 days, that would be about 120% uptime
08:24<chesty>and really, who of any importance says they have to be consecutive days? 37 days over the span of a few months and you've got 120% uptime

15:21<bumbleVole>i know this isn't exactly the right channel, but im hoping someone can make a suggestion. i run my own vpn on my linode, but i want to subscribe to a vpn service as a backup. any suggestions? when you google, it's pretty clear all the search results are gamed and the recommendations are affiliate based, so it's hard to decide which to go with
15:22<bumbleVole>basically i use a VPN so when im on public wifi, no one can snoop easily. and to hide my browsing activity from verizon fios and mobile
15:24<bumbleVole>so, anybody use a commercial vpn service that you are happy with?
15:42<@mcintosh>private internet access

19:15-!-ryanc-- is "OFTC WebIRC Client" on #linode
19:16<ryanc-->are there network issues in dallas?
19:16<millisa>you'd be the first to mention it. none of my dallas nodes have alerted
19:16<millisa>what are you seeing?
19:18<ryanc-->20-30% packet loss, 60-70ms more rtt than usual
19:19<ryanc-->the traceroute shows problems starting at
19:19<millisa>definitely not seeing that. have an mtr you can pastebin?
19:19<ryanc-->it's intermittent - a route flapping maybe?
19:22<millisa>maybe I'll take back what I said. found one thing that goes through one of those telia ips and it did have some loss
19:24<ryanc-->I do *not* see the loss on IPv6
19:24<ryanc-->but ipv6 seems to add a lot of extra latency from here
19:25<ryanc-->(v6 is going over tata rather than telia)
19:28<millisa>fwiw - outbound from a dfw linode to an att consumer ip in austin: (only thing I've found that takes a similar path)
19:29<ryanc-->millisa: thanks, so looks like intermittent issue with the telia peering?
19:29<millisa>probably. in mine, hop 6 (the one that beings with 12.123) is a DFW att IP
19:30<millisa>and it's pretty much stopped misbehaving at this point.
19:31<ryanc-->I first noticed it about two hours ago
19:32<ryanc-->millisa: it just started again
19:32<millisa>am seeing it increase about the same time you are then. probably should open a ticket.
19:35<ryanc-->too bad is in dallas....
19:36<warewolf>I'm seeing packet loss to dallas too.
19:36<warewolf>starting at
19:37<ryanc-->warewolf: yup, same router that's giving me trouble :-/
19:37<warewolf>ryanc--: since ~2h ago?
19:37<warewolf>er, 2.5h ago
19:37<ryanc-->yeah, off and on
19:40<staticsafe>icinga2 is alerting for me for my Dallas Linodes
19:40<staticsafe>and off and on
19:41<ryanc-->i opened a ticket
19:42<Peng_>In other news, my Atlanta node's clock is 65 seconds off
19:43<ryanc-->dear past me, why did you disable the v6 listener for ssh, you jerk
19:44<ryanc-->it's gotten worse
19:44<Peng_>In other other news, one of my (non-Linode) IRC clients is having trouble connecting to someone's IRC server in Dallas.

20:07<ryanc-->looks like someone just took the telia peering out back and shot it
20:08<ryanc-->traceroute shows cogent now
20:08<ryanc-->still some packet loss and lag there
20:09<ryanc-->I guess this is a DDoS?
20:09<Abi12>50% @ dallas for me.
20:09<Peng_>Isn't this normal for Telia
20:10<Abi12>s/50% timeout
20:12<warewolf>oddly enough still having some lovely packet loss, but yeah, telia is missing now :)
20:12<Abi12>off 136ms ping from atl
20:12<warewolf>I'm just glad that mosh is happy with packet loss

20:25<Peng_>Welcome to the party
20:25<t27duck>It seems to be isolated. I can get to my sites fine, but New Jersey seems to be a no-go
20:25<t27duck>mainly timeouts
20:25<t27duck>yeah, hopped in to join the party
20:25<Peng_> is aware of it.
20:25<Abi12>o.o seems great for me?
20:25<scivola>my home connection runs straight from charter to linode, and there's no loss to dallas
20:25<t27duck>Yep, just giving moral support
20:25<Peng_>Probably a routing issue with one provider.
20:26<t27duck>Two providers. At least Comcast and Sprint LTE
20:26<Peng_>But it might be the same backbone ISP

20:39<scivola>telia route seems to be stable now
20:40<t27duck>yep, starting to come back according to a contact in Jersey
20:41<t27duck>someone probably left a snickers bar on a router
