Pinging a router interface doesn't indicate packet loss - just that it's tossing those ICMP packets, which isn't unusual if a policer has been tripped etc. If you're seeing packet loss to a destination behind that router, that starts at that router then yes there is loss, but pinging a router directly is no indication.
I do not accept any customers who been attacked, and if their is DDOSing, I always null them as soon as I can.
And the problem is inside the network of GTT.
I only report here when they do NOT response and fix the problem after 1-2 hours. Today they ask for confirm the result after about 4-5 hours. It is very bad support for their customers.
It doesn't matter if it is directed to your client or not, some other host could be getting attacked and the Chinese attacks are so big now that they overload POPs and effect all other customers/networks of the carriers.
The problem is not just limited to GTT/nLayer/Inteliquent, even NTT and PCCW and other companies have this issue due to the size of the DDoS's created by Chinese.
The DDoS's are spoofed coming from China and/or 100TB/1Gbps/10Gbps ports in the USA and Europe from "pay for ddos" firms.
The proliferation of all the cheap 100TB on 1G and 10G budget trash hosts has increased the amount and size of attacks exponentially from what it was a just a couple years ago. A lot of these budget hosts don't even know how to monitor and identify patterns and traffic that is actually outbound DOS so they keep letting it occur... all the while losing money on these DDoS machines due to the actual bandwidth usage vs money charged.
