We often receive questions from LIRs about how to receive the "4-star IPv6 RIPEness" status. In this article, we describe how you can find out how many IPv6 RIPEness stars you have and which are missing. We also include instructions on how to get all four stars.
We will be holding a session at the RIPE meeting for people interested in discussing user-defined measurements (UDM) with RIPE Atlas. Both beta testers and people who have not yet used UDM are welcome to attend.
RIPE Atlas user-defined measurements are here! Hosts and sponsors can begin creating personalised measurements from probes around the globe.
At RIPE 63, the RIPE NCC was asked to consider possible options for Internationalisation of the RIPE Database content. This article provides a quick overview of the current situation as well as possible developments and challenges.
The next RIPEstat demo will be presented live at RIPE 64 in Ljubljana. After the demonstration there will be time to discuss RIPEstat development with other interested people. If you're not able to attend the demo, there are other opportunities to meet the people behind RIPEstat, and to watch a recording of the demo.
The RIPE NCC is 20 years old and it now has over 8,000 members. In this article, we drill down a bit more into the composition of our membership: what industry do RIPE NCC members come from and which countries account for the highest numbers of members and IP resources.
We would like to introduce the RIPE NCC Report Form. Our aim is to make it easier for you to get in touch and we also hope to further improve the quality of the data in the Internet number resource registry.
RIPE Atlas is now accessible for all the RIPE Labs users and LIR Portal users, via "RIPE NCC Access" (single sign on system).
The third RIPEstat demo for 2012 covered all the new and modified widgets we've added in the last month: ASN Neighbours, Geolocation History, Prefix Count, Prefix Size Distribution, Routing History, and Announced Prefixes. Other new features included enabling the RIPE NCC Access login system, and links to RIPEstat from the RIPE database. A preview of upcoming development concluded the presentation.
We developed a script to measure IPv6 capabilities of DNS resolvers and clients two years ago. Recently we found some interesting trends in IPv6 capable DNS infrastructure.
