To support the growth of the OVH network, we will harmonize the interPoP links with 100G Ethernet.
A new optical 100G optical link between Strasbourg and Zurich is in production, this will optimize latency.
Thus the direct link Strasbourg <> Zurich, has a latency of around 2 ms, a gain of 15 ms in comparison to the path passing through Frankfurt!
Date: 2016-07-28 17:58:42 UTC The traffic is now going through this link:
zur-1-a72#sh int et54/1 | i rate
30 seconds input rate 2.82 Gbps (2.9% with framing overhead), 251085 packets/sec
30 seconds output rate 2.26 Gbps (2.4% with framing overhead), 799728 packets/sec
Date: 2016-07-27 19:17:55 UTC We will leave the link without traffic for the night for technical validation. If everyhong is OK, the traffic to and from Zurich will be sold on this new 100G link tomorrow morning.
Date: 2016-07-27 19:16:14 UTC No problems detected on the link production, optical levels OK, no CRC:
