Reporting network problems

A mechanism has been set up to enable offsite users to report network problems to the SLAC network support staff. They ask that all problem reports be sent by e-amil to:
When submitting problem reports please include the following information.
  1. Output from a PING from your site to the SLAC node you are conecting to e.g.
    % ping
    PING ( 56 data bytes
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=254 time=19 ms
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=254 time=2 ms
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=254 time=1 ms
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=254 time=39 ms
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=4 ttl=254 time=3 ms
    ^C PING Statistics----
    5 packets transmitted, 5 packets received, 0% packet loss
    round-trip min/avg/max = 1/12/39 ms
  2. Output from a TRACEROUTE from your site to the SLAC node you are connecting to. e.g.
    % traceroute
    traceroute to (, 30 hops max, 40 byte packets
     1  RTR-CGB-MAIN.SLAC.Stanford.EDU (  3 ms  2 ms  5 ms
     2  SLDA1.SLAC.Stanford.EDU (  3 ms  2 ms  2 ms
    Who you are, and when you experienced the problems would probably be useful too, and of course the more information you can provide the more likely you are to find your problems solved.
