Question regarding tserv5.lon1
« on: October 05, 2012, 06:18:58 AM »

I see it's currently down on the service status. I've been having packet loss and intermittent connectivity for a few days now. Is the downtime related to that? Are there issues? Sorry to trouble you all but i'd like to find the cause for my issues that have been fine up until a little bit ago..

I looked at http://tunnelbroker.net/status.php and it showed all tunnel servers as up. However in the past when I have found a tunnel server to be down, it also showed as up on that status page.

I did a few traceroutes to your IP. I did notice a few packets getting lost and high latency. Multiple times I saw a roundtrip time of one second or more.

Maybe the downtime you saw was due to the tunnel server being restarted, after somebody else affected by this problem contacted ipv6@he.net. But I have no way of knowing. The symptoms I saw are gone now, and I don't know why.

I just tried to access this thread and was unable to because my tunnel wasn't working (ironic) 

In the past though, I've seen glitches that don't make it to the tunnel status page.

But this thread is about the London tunnel server, and as far as I can tell you are using the New York tunnel server. Another thread may be relevant to you. I don't know if twinbee reported the problem. But I have kept pinging occasionally, and the problem isn't gone yet.

Yeah I know, my post wasn't to say that my tunnel was down, but to say that some glitches with the tunnel servers don't make it to the server status page.

I'm still baffled at whats going on. The tunnel works perfectly but say I leave a ping going it will randomly stop for sometimes a few seconds.. sometimes a a few minutes then start again.. Totally losing ipv6 connectivity. Router still have it's ipv6 address as does my person pc but dead to the world for a bit.. I'd feel better if I knew it was the tunnel server doing it but obviously as it stands it niggles at me. Ideas / Things to try please?

Did you create another tunnel since last I checked? It looks like you currently have two tunnels on that tunnel server, and only one of them is responding.

This is what a traceroute looks like on the tunnel, that is up:
Code: [Select]
traceroute to mhisani-3-pt.tunnel.tserv5.lon1.ipv6.he.net (2001:470:1f08:1d8::2), 30 hops max, 80 byte packets
 1  2001:470:28:940:5d75:c1f4:e0a0:f8ec  0.509 ms  22.846 ms  23.852 ms
 2  2001:470:27:940::1  40.112 ms  33.458 ms  43.644 ms
 3  2001:470:0:11e::1  48.363 ms  36.567 ms  41.121 ms

 7  2001:470:1f08:1d8::2  127.598 ms  96.176 ms  96.857 ms
I'll try to run that traceroute periodically such that I hopefully can provide you with an example of what it looks like from the other end, when the connection goes down.

The last thirty seconds of that outage there wasn't complete packet loss but just extremely high latency
Code: [Select]
traceroute to mhisani-3-pt.tunnel.tserv5.lon1.ipv6.he.net (2001:470:1f08:1d8::2), 30 hops max, 80 byte packets
 1  2001:470:28:940:5d75:c1f4:e0a0:f8ec  0.528 ms  8.778 ms  9.379 ms
 2  2001:470:27:940::1  32.172 ms  28.674 ms  31.604 ms
 3  2001:470:0:11e::1  34.435 ms  65.829 ms  71.432 ms
 4  2001:470:0:22f::1  99.056 ms  99.707 ms  97.204 ms
 5  2001:470:0:3f::1  115.883 ms  113.525 ms  114.548 ms
 6  2001:470:0:67::2  633.935 ms  637.145 ms  650.200 ms
 7  2001:470:1f08:1d8::2  1269.933 ms  1260.103 ms  1295.334 ms

Notice that many of these outages appear on the IPv6 side of the tunnel server, so cannot be caused by the IPv4 link between tunnel server and user. The last one which ended with a period of high latency apparently added about 500ms of extra latency on both IPv4 and IPv6 side of the tunnel server. A few of them appear to be only on the IPv4 side of the tunnel server. Based on the above I say it is reasonable to assume the problem is on the tunnel server.

Yeah. Think I should email them about it?

Also I made a new tunnel just to full start a scratch.

That looks like a neat monitoring service. But why are users required to make up a UK postal code in order to use it?

Here is a graph from one of my tunnels: http://www.thinkbroadband.com/ping/share/083c2a45828ae66069c1eb577cf72c73.html

Mabye I should reconsider my choice to write a message on stdout for every ping I receive, at one per second that does make the output a bit noisy. I'm curious how their service will react to that particular IP address sending three replies to every ping it receives.

And a monitor on another one of my tunnels: http://www.thinkbroadband.com/ping/share/39ab03b5cd01faeb355e1ac99826bb35.html

Namely as that site is basically for UK Broadband interests :)

I'm still getting the drop outs. :/

Perhaps I could trouble you to setup a london tunnel and monitor it yourself if you can. Do you think I should email he.net and bring it to their attention?

I already have five tunnels, so I can't create another.

Yes.

They were dealing just fine with the multiple replies. But I found a starvation bug in my own code. In one rare corner case my code would only retransmit a query after 10 seconds had passed with no packets received at all. Receiving a ping per second meant that retransmission would never happen.
