IPv4 problems

All dotsrc services were unavailable on IPv4 from around 2019-02-12 12:30 CET to around 16:00 CET. IPv6 traffic was unaffected.

The outage was caused by BGP hijacking of announced from an Iranian ISP.


At dotsrc.org we just got our internet bandwidth doubled. Not because we needed the capacity, but we wanted the redundancy.
We now have two 10G uplinks. One to our ISP's (DeiC) router in Lyngby, and one to DeiC's router in ├śrestad. Thanks to DeiC and AAU It Services for making this possible.

Dotsrc offline for 1 hour

Due to some problems at our ISP (DeIC), all our services, except our IRC-server which is hosted elsewhere, was unfortunately offline about 1 hour from 2018-04-06 00:05:07 CEST until 2018-04-06 01:15:07.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Milestone reached: 100TB a week

The total amount of data we upload every week has just passed 100TB! On average this is more than 1.33Gbit/sec.
Traffic graph.

Our mirror service is the main contributer, which accounts for around 80TB.

The last 20TB is shared between our other services (OpenStreetMap, Tor and Usenet).


The dotsrc servers are now backed by a 10Gbit Internet connection, and on top of this, the mirror server ( mirrors.dotsrc.org ) has been upgraded to a vastly better server, equipped with a 10Gbit network card. This big upgrade would not have been possible without our sponsors. Big thanks to: DKUUG - for a big cash sponsorship. DeIC - 10Gbit Internet connection. Aalborg University - Sponsored their old Google Search Appliance server, along with two Cisco 3750X switches + 10Gbit modules. [Read More]

Two new services and new mirrors

We now run a tile caching server for OpenStreetMap and are a part of their tile CDN. We are the primary server for tiles served to clients connecting from Denmark, so if OpenStreetMap feels 'snappier' (at least in Denmark) it is thanks to us. We also set up a tor middle relay. This is a non-exit relay, so it only receives encrypted traffic and passes it along to another relay. [Read More]

Call for hardware sponsorship

During the recent hardware upgrade, we used all our 4TB drives, so we call for sponsors of additional hard drives in order to keep running our services as optimally as possible. Specifically we need SATA 3.5" hard drives 4TB (or more) and preferably designed for 24/7 usage (e.g. the Western Digital SE/RE/Gold 4TB drive). Sponsoring either as funding or as hardware will of course add you to our list of proud sponsors. [Read More]

Upgrade on mirrors.dotsrc.org

The server hosting mirrors.dotsrc.org has been upgraded with newer and faster hard drives. The software stack has also been updated, which includes a switch from using the Apache HTTP server to Nginx.

Online again

Due to a damaged fibre between dotsrc and the DeIC POP about 100m away all our services, except our IRC-server which is hosted elsewhere, was unfortunately offline from 2014-04-26T19:52 until today at 15:56. We apologize for any inconvenience.
