Just noticed something a bit weird with Global Gateway / Amazon AWS Sydney - seeing packet drops upwards of 75% and increased latency (gone from 30ms to 65ms).

 

This is from multiple connections (Spark, BigPipe) - other ISP's appear to be unaffected. Also has made services like Snapchat incredibly slow to use (such drama) but most importantly to me I have a bunch of servers in AWS that are almost impossible to work on right now.

 

Anyone else notice anything? For an example of this occurring try accessing either gpforums or bigpipes website from a Spark / BigPipe connection.

Have noticed this here as well. Massive lag when trying to play PUBG, whose servers are hosted on AWS. Also can't watch things on gfycat.

 

 

 

On spark fibre.

testing here, aws sydney latency is about as expected over spark and vf. 

 

gfycat seems to be just as sluggish over both networks.

 

 

 

Past that though @Talkiet would be best here to indicate anything, I'd suspect there is a cut along the way or something of the likes...

Sorry guys, I'm effectively offline this weekend. I have 2 days of motorsports during the day, and shifting house during the evenings.

 

I might get a chance to look early tomorrow morning but I doubt it. If you haven't already, please log an incident - often these sort of issues that may be upstream from our network won't get noticed unless people tell us about them through proper channels...

 

It's not feasible to test to every point on the Internet and while AWS is a big thing, it's still part of the Internet.

 

Cheers - N

Having said that, I have just been speaking to someone and they are going to make noises at the right people...

Was just coming here to see if anyone else was having issues - I've been having issues all day getting to at least two Cloudfront IPs (the ones used for download.docker.com and download-cf.jetbrains.com). Its not fun get 0-4kb/s when trying to download 200/300Mb files :(

 

My latency to Cloudfront has been more like 75-85ms.

I had an issue connecting to AWS Tuesday night ... rebooted the router and wandered off for a bit, seemed to work correctly following that.  mtr showed a different route being used post reboot.  pre-reboot I saw traffic going through NTT, whose network status page at the time was saying there was a problem with the GIN network due to a submarine cable fault.

 

Frustratingly enough, my fanpass has just died as well. (Both issues on BigPipe)

You can always run the Speedtest for AWS (which takes ages) or CloudPing (fast). On 2deg I'm getting 48ms ping to Sydney, which is a touch higher than I'd expect, but not bad.

Cloudping didn't show anything untoward but I'm not sure how in depth a check it is. Speedtest for AWS however was quite eye-opening. Amazon Cloudfront Downlink tests all failed with a latency of 80.5 whilst ap-southeast-2 failed the first Downlink test and only passed on 2 out of the 8 tests for the other downlink tests with a speed of 0.3Mb/s. Latency was 570.

 

Compare this to us-east-1 which had a downlink of 1.03Mb/s and 9.84Mb/s respectively and latency of 616.5.

 

tl;dr, definitely something poked with getting to AWS Southeast...

Yep i'm seeing 62ms ping to Overwatch servers (roughly double) and massive packet loss. AirNZ/Bigpipe website takes 3-5mins to load (both hosted on AWS).
