Sorry if I don't explain this correctly, but I'm still learning BGP terms, etc. The individual that set this up left the company. First, I'll give a quick rundown of the network and why it's this way. Then, I'll explain the issue.
We have 2 ASR1000's that are handling BGP from 3 different providers. ASR1 has a Gig-E connection to L3, ASR2 has a Gig-E to Sprint, and OC3 to AT&T. The Sprint connection was recently converted from OC3 to Gig-E approx 4 weeks ago. The original Sprint OC3 connection was going through a "route-map poison-route permit 10 & route-map poison-route permit 20 (with prepends on both)". The Gig-E connection to Sprint was currently being finalized when the L3 connection was severed due to fiber cut. As a result, we decided to fire up the Sprint Gig-E connection.
Currently, The Sprint GbE connection (ASR2) is not going through any type "route-map poison-route". Either is the L3 connection (ASR1). We are running OSPF w/BFD on our core routers and edge devices.
L3 - Running approx 500 MB
Sprint - Running approx 250 MB
It seems since we've fired up both GbE connections to the different providers, our users notice a "hesitation" when pulling up websites or sending traffic. Once the hesitation has passed, traffic flows normally. Example, pulling up www.youtube.com, takes a couple of seconds, but once it goes, everything seems fine. Streaming a Netflix video - initial load takes a while, then no problems
Is it possible the problem exists because 2 GbE links on two different ASRs are sharing equal "routing"?
Should I consider sending one of the links to a "route-map poison-route" with AS prepends?
Or, is it possible the issue lies within BFD on my 7609 and 6509 routers?
Funny you ask about DNS. I was packet capturing after I sent this message. Noticed that the Standard DNS query launched, but took quite some time to "respond". I'm working with our DNS guys now to see if they notice anything.
