All, UW-Madison (including AOS and SSEC) will be off the network for somewhere between 20 minutes and 4 hours beginning around 3 AM CST (08 UTC). They're doing a semi-emergency router upgrade in anticipation of the impending flood of data when classes begin again Tuesday. Sounds like it shouldn't be a real long outage, but anyone feeding from .meteor.wisc.edu or .ssec.wisc.edu might want to fail over until things are up and running tomorrow.

Sender: owner-uw-netfolks@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx CAMPUS NETWORK OUTAGE NOTIFICATION Time: 3AM to 7AM On Friday, 31 August 2001, the campus network Internet connection will be temporarily interrupted to put a new, higher capacity router into production. We have scheduled 4 hours for doing this. In reality we expect the outage to last less than 20 minutes. The reason for doing this so quickly is because our current peering router will not be able to handle the load we expect to see and it's already ramping up quickly. We've had several short outages due to processing overload on the peering router in the past 2 weeks. We apologize for the short notice, this will make our Internet connection more reliable and also give us some breathing room to accommodate additional bandwidth as we purchase it and bring it on line. Thank you. Robert Lee DoIT Network Services
