In anticipation of reaching the last /8 of IPv4 addresses in the RIPE NCC service region, we have been looking at the number of IPv4 addresses the RIPE NCC handed out over the last four years. The curves look surprisingly uniform.
Similar to last years World IPv6 Day, this year, the RIPE NCC is measuring selected World IPv6 Launch participants from over 50 vantage points all over the world. We're measuring DNS, ping, traceroute and HTTP and show results at http://ipv6launch.ripe.net/ .
RIPEstat has a new DNS widget for World IPv6 Launch. The widget can be included in any website where you'd like viewers to be able to perform IPv6 (and IPv4) DNS lookups or view your site's DNS details.
Peer rankings help keep medical organizations clean of spam. This is a follow-up to an earlier article: The Big Medical Drop in SpamRankings.net
This article is looking at different measurements done at the network level and at the end user level and the results seen through these measurements.
RIPE Atlas is releasing a new service for Local Internet Registries (LIRs): if you are a member of the RIPE NCC, you can test the reachability of your IPv6 website from all IPv6-capable RIPE Atlas probes (currently more than 600).
At the recent RIPE Meeting we presented some IPv6 address distribution statistics which we would like to share with a wider audience. In the article below, you can find statistics on IPv6 allocations and assignments. In particular, the article details what affect the removal of the requirement to be multihomed had on the number of assignments and the relationship between the age of an LIR and the number of IPv6 addresses they have received.
The new Address Space Hierarchy widget allows you to see how address space is used. It shows how a particular prefix fits within a less specific block, and the more specific prefixes which fit within it. In this article we look at the widget in more depth.
The new RIPEstat Object Browser widget provides an interactive, visual overview of the relationship between objects in the RIPE database. This article describes the features of the widget.
The RIPEstat "birds of a feather" (BoF) session during RIPE 64 in Ljubljana drew a number of people interested in RIPEstat development. To encourage feedback, we announced a survey with the chance to win a RIPEstat t-shirt. New widgets (Address Space Hierarchy and Object Browser) were announced, along with the news that RIPEstat now accepts ranges, and progress update on the task of converting plugins to widgets.
