Same here on the east coast. 10pm is usually when it craps out--probably peak user hours and the ISP can't handle the load. I noticed recently that CR has switched from Performance Systems International as their internet service provider to CloudFlare. Maybe they have to work out the bugs with the switch--most large scale switch-overs encounter some unexpected problems--or maybe it's just coincidence. Either way, downtime sucks giant gorilla tits, so fix this shit... please.

i RESEARCHED A LOT

Cogen was PSI before it became Cogent !

PSI is a new company ?? Very confusing

Cogent which provide Netflix direct help has a battlle going on with Verizon about throttling ! But guess who owns Redbox / NetFlix's rival!

Now Funimation had all kinds of problems with CloudFare last year! They just went and built a whole new website which seems quite well nowadays!

So if you ask me seems there is a lot of conflict amongst valid Internet companies let alone DDOS attacks!

The battle over who should pay to carry Netflix traffic is heating up again, and one of the main players blames Verizon's greed for the poor performance that many consumers see when trying to watch streaming video.

Theoretically, the peering arrangement between Cogent and Verizon benefits both. Cogent gets to distribute Netflix traffic, as Netflix pays it to do, and Verizon ensures that its customers, who pay Verizon to access the Internet and are demanding to watch Netflix movies, get the content they request.

Cogent has refused to pay. As negotiations stall, Netflix performance has dropped measurably for months on both Verizon and Comcast. Cogent claims this is because Verizon and others—but especially Verizon—are refusing to upgrade the connections between networks. Cogent points out that Verizon offers its own streaming video services, such as Redbox Instant, and thus has an incentive to harm Netflix traffic.

Cloud Fare 502 FAQ

There is an unknown issue occurring between CloudFlare's cache and your origin web server. CloudFlare monitors for these errors and investigates as they occur. If you are seeing a 520 error
on your website, please pull the corresponding error log from your server and submit to our
support team. Please include the Ray ID from the 520 CloudFlare Error page. You can find the

One potential cause could be that your web server is sending a response header that exceeds CloudFlare's maximum response header size. This could be the case if you're sending an abnormally high number of cookies for example.

My hat is off to you, Jerry. You really have done quite a bit of research. I had no idea PSI and Cogent were one and the same. Seems as though there is a bit of conflict going on over streaming content on the web. I've heard of TWC and Comcast throttling service in the recent past over streaming vids and music (and it happened to me when I made the switch to the former this year, but I managed to find a workaround to correct it ). I thought Verizon was a fair ISP, having pledged net neutrality over content, but if they're engaged in this type of "sabotage" (for lack of a more precise term), then I suppose they're no better than the rest, and we're all in for problems moving forward no matter who our ISP is... However, as long as we all still have access to Crunchyroll, we should be fine.
