ColoCrossing's Buffalo, NY network is slowing down? Too many Spammers?
I don't have anything with them in Buffalo, NY anymore, but I've been asked multiple times about the network in that location. I know a few people that have gotten servers lately from CC that has slow connections. Supposed to be 1gbps connections but are lucky to get 400mbps connection speeds. I'm not dissing ColoCrossing, just wondering if anyone else has been having these issues with their Buffalo, NY location. The server I do have with ColoCrossing in Dallas, TX is great, no issues.. So that's why I'm wondering...
Anyone got anything?

Could be all the DDoS traffic they're attracting after deploying RioRey?
Anyway, ColoCrossing are known to display a disregard for their network in many ways, so why anyone is still hosting with them is beyond me.
Cheap servers and free zillions of ip
38% of their allocated IPs are in use. Multiple /19s completely untouched.
From their looking glass:
200Kbps from ramnode NY and 100Kbps down from BHS 1Gbps connection.
Well, that wasn't impressing, 50 KB/s from Sweden (http://puu.sh/fFhmP/43f5d58309.png) on a 500 Mbit/s conenction (http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/4127751267)
Yea, some speed test issues on a clients server in Buffalo as well:
CPU model : Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU C2758 @ 2.41GHz
Number of cores : 8
CPU frequency : 1162.000 MHz
Total amount of ram : 15906 MB
Total amount of swap : 0 MB
System uptime : 6 days, 5:44,
Download speed from CacheFly: 65.5MB/s
Download speed from Coloat, Atlanta GA: 5.00MB/s
The tests from that point don't complete and just timeout. Eh... Such is life I guess.
Dem routes doe
My screenshot would be very similar a few minutes ago. It seems I can get a bit better speed now, but trying from my VPSs their network is really bad.
Exactly why I don't use colocrossing buffalo. Way too slow. Then when you ticket support they want an MTR and want you to teat for them..... Can they not run these tests on their own?
Really frustrating. Their Chicago and NJ locations are pretty damn good though.
Here's a crazy route for you, NC to BUFF:
Typical 'New York' for me is low 40's.
We will take a look at this route for you though that looks like strange routing inside your isps network.
That said we can optimize it so it doesn't go back to NYC and instead goes Chicago, Toronto, Buffalo.
We're not aware of any network wide issue with slow speeds at this time.
Suppose so but those routes though, I can show you what a NY and NJ route looks like if you're interested.
Please email me your ip so I can look at your return route. My email is [email protected]
@Jack they can run the freevps.us benchmark without my intervention was what I was eluding to. They definitely can not to MTRs on their own I get that. The issue is almost every one of the download tests on that benchmark script have abysmal results.
@jbiloh - From Linode ATL - http://pastie.org/pastes/9912712/text?key=qctcdct3s6jm1xmdldxw . Download is ~200KB/s.
For comparison, to us in ATL is about 700K/s. Route goes NTT > Hibernia through Ashburn and NYC.
Hmm, I'm seeing between 1.5M and 15M/s right now, averaging 6M/s. 14ms latency.
It's all the kids on HackForums reselling Hudson Valley Servers due to their ability to spoof. If you want to see 50% of the traffic on your network free up @jbiloh, implement BCP38.
Your network is not only becoming a spam-haven, but due to the script kids who know HVH / GVH are ripe for cheap 1Gbps servers that spoof, you're powering most of the stressers on the internet.
Incase one doesn't believe:
So, your Atrato and XO lines are being utilzied by the s-kids of the internet. Get BCP38 to stop dat spoofing, if you care.
Doubt this guy is helping either... CC, GVH and HVH seem to be the flavor of the month there, even for people who sell rooted servers, just an actual heads up why your tiny XO and Atrato commits are eaten up :
We'll investigate that. About a year ago we implemented a system that monitors flow data and null routes servers performing such activity. We'll check to see if the system needs to be tweaked further.
I do not have an account on HF but I will contact the administrators for more information.
I only joined when I heard someone was reselling your servers as they had 'spoofing enabled'
I found around 3-4 different sellers (it is easy to tell because C2758 lineups) as well as many simply selling your rooted servers.
Netflow technology is your friend. To get you started, NfSen
Not CC hating, just simply the truth of kids mucking up your network.
Yes flow data is amazing, really a very powerful tool. We've been using it for a few years network wide.
Don't try to email from these servers... I've got a box with a company who uses ColoCrossing and I'm cancelling due unable to send mail since basically their IPs are SBL'd
You should be able to request clean ips....
Anyone who was having some slowness today please re-test and let me know how it looks now.
Put in a ticket we'll give you different ips. Sorry for the hassle.
It picked up a bit after
Then went to Shit on another try
This VPS is with Urpad in Los Angeles I believe.
