Have you tried tracing to the servers using traceroute from your PC or a
web based traceroute?
It's not uncommon for a major ingress point to fail for a few minutes (or
days in one recent case) that takes a lot of primary routing out.
I use to have a list of who was connected to where but it changes so much
these days it was impossible to keep up to date.
Maybe I'll write a tracer that logs paths and we can then monitor the
connection points :) Map the Aussie Internet :)
