  • PlusNet service issues report
    have no option but to affect all of our customers who are connected at that time This is a procedure that has been carried out regularly in the past without issues The re authentication process involves disconnecting all customers connected through each of our pipes in a staggered manner waiting for the customers from one pipe to reconnect to the network and then starting the next Connection attempts are monitored and authorised by our RADIUS platform The problem occurred during the re authentication of customers from the final BT Central pipe which is currently operating as part of a BT Wholesale trial and has more customers connected than all other similar pieces of equipment on our network We operate two distinct RADIUS platforms each one made up of numerous servers some of which are dedicated to different tasks Database Front end Accounting etc When we went to re connect the customers on our most heavily subscribed Central Pipe At that time in the morning this was approaching 30 000 live user sessions the authentication front end server core dumped crashed and stopped responding to new connection requests Although the secondary RADIUS platform did not crash the extra load generated caused a severe performance issue due to the sheer volume of connection requests The problem was exacerbated by the way many customers routers are configured to constantly retry should the connection attempt fail Ultimately it was these retried attempts that kept the platform under severe load preventing us from successfully bringing back the primary server and meaning more failed connection attempts and a loop forming that was difficult to break In order to resolve the problem our engineers had to re assign additional network resources from other areas of our network and two new servers were built and permanently added to the RADIUS platform As a result of the problem around a third of our customers were unable to connect to the Internet until late morning and a handful of customers were unable to connect until the early afternoon We do understand and acknowledge the obvious frustrations that this incident caused for many people and we are now putting extra steps in place to ensure that an incident like this does not occur again This will include further backup authentication servers to improve the resiliency of our network Additionally improved flow control for RADIUS packets will ensure that the RADIUS platform itself cannot become overloaded due to too many connection attempts at once We do take this type of incident very seriously and work is now in progress to implement revisions to our maintenance strategy in order to ensure that any chance of customer impacting problems are kept to an absolute minimum In this instance we did not provide the right level of customer experience and as well as the technical issues we recognise that the response from our customer support team also failed to meet our customers expectations Customer Support Centre Response During the problems last Tuesday morning we believe
