STP flapping

Network Operations Center: Type: Issue State: Solved Start Time: 30-3-2017 13:00:00 End Time: 30-3-2017 14:15:00

RESOLVED: Our networking team has handled the issues with highest priority and they found a bug on a certain type of network switches WorldStream uses. This caused the switches to overload, the switches in return started to reload. This is what caused the down-time. Our networking team has completely removed the protocol which caused the bugs from the named switches and blocked all traffic that communicated with this protocol. The network has now stabilized and we can assure you that this issue has been permanently solved. We would like to thank you for your faith in WorldStream and we would like to offer our sincere apologies for the inconveniences with the network lately.


We are currently facing STP flapping on some of our routers which is causing timeouts on a part of our datacenter. We are very sorry for the problems that may occure with the connection to your servers.
