Yes, sydney.cache.telstra.net was dead since about 6am this morning until
about 2pm today. I don't know if other regions were affected however
sydney.cache was also very slow yesterday afternoon and there were
apparently some nasty problems within their core network.
When I spoke to someone at about 9:30am this morning who acknowledged the
problem with the service being dead, a techie was being despatched to
attend to it. They weren't even aware of the problem when I called, and
based on my logs it appears to have been broken from about 6am onwards.
I was told that I could expect an outage notice "on Monday morning" as the
person I spoke to didn't have access to that part of the system, nor was he
able to list this as a fault on the web site.
Of course, I shouldn't forget, proxy cache is mentioned on their website as
a non critical service and faults are only fixed "during business hours" so
we should of course be counting ourselves lucky that it was being fixed at
At least the BPD people I did get to speak with were polite and helpful,
even if it was hard to get through to them.
