On August 12 internet users worldwide reported outages and slow response times. Subsequent analysis indicates the root cause was the presence of network equipment with a limit to the number of routes or paths that they could store to route traffic (the limit is 512,000 or 512K).

For more information about this issue including how UW and others are responding see: https://uwaterloo.ca/ist/news/internet-issues-related-512k.

IST will notify the university community when we detect issues related to this in the future.
