We successfully completed migrating a pilot cmts in chch to the vlan segmented architecture Tuesday morning in the wee smalls. Arp levels pre migration were ~120pps, post migration it was ~0.2pps.... we saw 6 arps in the 30sec capture we performed after we'd finished up. Since the pilot migration ARP levels sky rocketed at peak time to a whopping 2, count them 1... 2 packets per second.
Needless to say we're quietly happy with the results.
We're going to be performing the chch mass migration monday morning (21/07) so expect an outage of upto 15mins sometime between 1am and 3am depending on where you are in chch. Once you come back you should see significantly less arp.
Following on from that we're aiming to do the pilot CMTS in Wellington on Thursday morning next week (24/07) and Wellingtons mass migration on the following Tuesday (29/7).
