It's Linktober!  "Meshoween" is coming :-)

We've found that as networks grow both in node count and complexity, it's almost inevitable that they'll suffer from a packet storm (or storms) eventually.

Now that the patch for mitigating those network packet storms has been rolled into an AREDN nightly build, we've decided that it's time to stress-test our network.  On October 30th (starting at say, 9 a.m. local time) we'll attempt to link as many networks together to see how the network behaves.  If you have a long-haul tunnel that you can bring up, feel free to do so.

HOWEVER, if you decide to participate in the test, or think you might be on a network that gets linked in, it's highly recommended that you update your node(s) to nightly build 571 or later to "inoculate" them against a possible incoming network storm.

Before October 30th, we'll provide a reminder and instructions on what to monitor during the test.
Thanks in advance for your consideration!  Please pass this along to your AREDN network neighbors.
