Venezuela experienced a major nationwide power outage today. The extent of the massive outage is illustrated by the sudden drop in Venezuelan internet traffic, as picked up by our network monitoring technologies.
The graph measures ISPRIME’s total traffic to Venezuela (excluding CDN). The different colors represent different paths that we use for reaching them (based on their BGP announcement policies).
Having this kind of insight into network operations allows us to route traffic accordingly and achieve the best possible routes for fast data delivery. In this case, it helped visualize the effects of the outage.
