Simplified Route Creation in the RIPE Database

Denis Walker — Oct 04, 2013 11:20 AM

Creating route objects just got a whole lot easier! Forget about hassle across organisations. Now you can submit the object with the passwords you have, and if it needs more, we will sort it out. The software will decide who else needs to authorise it and contact them. When they send in their passwords, we will match them up and create the object. Then we let everyone know the result – whether it’s a success or failure. Can it get any easier than this?

RIPE Atlas anchors is transitioning from a pilot project to a production service.

Here we present a draft of these documents and ask for feedback, as we want to ensure we keep the community involved in every step of the process.

RIPE Atlas - Packet Size Matters

Emile Aben — Oct 02, 2013 04:30 PM

RIPE Atlas - Packet Size Matters This new RIPE Labs article talks about trying to send large packets over the Internet. Above a certain size, these packets will have to be fragmented, which is known to cause problems. In both IPv4 and IPv6, we see approximately 10% of RIPE Atlas probes that are unsuccessful in pings with fragmented packets, while they don't encounter problems with smaller unfragmented packets.

Valuing IP Addresses

Geoff Huston — Sep 25, 2013 11:45 AM

The prospect of exhaustion of the IPv4 address space is not a surprise. We've been anticipating this situation since at least 1990. But it's a "lumpy" form of exhaustion. It's not the case that the scarcity pressures for IP addresses are evidently to the same level in every part of the Internet. It's not the case that every single address is being used by an active device.
