Internet Alerts Features

A variety of alerts to help you continuously monitor the health of the Internet routes your business depends on, including alerts for:

Route Hijack - when a prefix you originate is announced by a different Origin Autonomous System (AS).

Hijacked Subnetwork - when you are monitoring a prefix and a more specific prefix within that range is announced by a different Origin AS.

Outage - when a network is no longer reachable on the Internet by the majority of other networks.

Newly Routed Prefix - when you are monitoring a prefix that is not typically seen routed on the Internet that is seen announced by at least one of its peers.

Newly Routed Sub-prefix - when a more specific prefix of a prefix you are monitoring is seen unexpectedly announced by one or more of its peers.

New Upstream AS - when a new upstream adjacent AS is seen announcing a route to your monitored prefixes by at least one of its peers.

New AS Origination - when monitoring an AS and a prefix not typically originated by that AS is seen by at least one of its peers.

Instability (Flapping) - when a network is seen being announced and withdrawn rapidly by minimum of 20% of our peers over a five minute period.
