Using RIPE Atlas to Validate International Routing Detours
Using RIPE Atlas to Validate International Routing Detours
Anant Shah — 30 Jan 2017

International routing detours are paths that originate in one country, visit another country and return to the original country. Such circuitous routes could occur due to intentional traffic engineering, lack of local peering, BGP misconfigurations, or even attacks. Detecting such events helps network engineers to diagnose problems. … Read more

BGP in 2016
BGP in 2016
Geoff Huston — 27 Jan 2017

It has become either a tradition or a habit for me that, each January, I report on the experience with the inter-domain routing system over the past year; looking in some detail at metrics from the routing system that can show the essential shape and behaviour of the underlying interconnection fabric of the Internet.… Read more

The Next 42 RIPE Atlas Probes at Hackerspaces
The Next 42 RIPE Atlas Probes at Hackerspaces
Vesna Manojlovic — 28 Dec 2016

In this article, we give one example of the possible communities that are now easier to build around RIPE Atlas probes. With the tagging of similar probes, existing communities can use additional tools for creating and analysing RIPE Atlas measurements, such as "IXP Country Jedi", to create their own interpretation of the available data. We are hoping this is going to be an inspiration to the reader, and an invitation to play with the results and improve on the code. … Read more
