After a short service outage, I was interested to find out what happened. Please find below a case study for using public RIPE NCC Tools for this purpose.
Based on new information we received since the last publication, we updated the IPv6 CPE matrix. See the new version below.
At the last RIPE meetings, we provided the meeting schedule in Google Calendar. We now offer the same service for the upcoming RIPE 61 meeting in Rome.
Let's take a look at how the number of different RIPE DB objects changed in the last nine years. Many of the graphs are easy to understand, but some of them are not trivial.
Back in December 2009 we released a tool with which you can test your DNS resolver for possible issues with a DNSSEC signed root zone. Now that the root zone has been signed in production since 15 July 2010 we will stop this service on Monday, 11 October 2010.
After the DNS root zone was finally signed and a number of TLDs began signing their zones, we were curious to see how many clients actually request DNSSEC information. First we looked at our server that provides secondary service to several ccTLDs.
A short story about ad hoc IPv6/IPv4 measurements.
On 27 August 2010, the RIPE NCC's Routing Information Service (RIS) was involved in an experiment using optional attributes in the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP). As a result of this experiment, a small, but significant percentage of global Internet traffic was disrupted for a period of about 30 minutes. The following article provides some background information on the experiment itself and its effect on the network.
Following the first announcement of the active measurement network we are planning to set up, you can find a short description below of the equipment we are planning to use for all vantage points.
This graph shows IPv6 performance as measured to www.ripe.net. These measurements show performance of native IPv6 on average being very close to IPv4.
