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.
... those LIRs that closed. The RIPE NCC now has over 8,000 members. But how many members have closed in the meantime and why?
Behind this cryptic title is the announcement of awarding credits for RIPE Atlas User-Defined Measurements (UDM) to RIPE NCC members: Local Internet Registries (LIRs). Limited test program will start at RIPE64 meeting in Ljubljana, 16-20 April.
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.
