The launch date of our new active measurements network, RIPE Atlas, is close. We already received a lot of interest and offers to host such a probe. In this article, we explain some more details about how to participate in this effort.
Olivier Crepin-Leblond from the Internet Society chapter in England is announcing the results of a tool they designed and implemented. It is an “IPv6 crawler" that crawls through the DNS to detect IPv6 compliant servers. The results were interesting and can be viewed on an "IPv6 Matrix" showing IPv6 penetration on geographical maps.
Please find below all previous versions of the IPv6 CPE survey and matrix with the most recent version on top.
We are proud to announce a new release of the RIPE NCC Resource Certification system. We are gearing up for the production release on 1 January 2011 and have implemented some critical changes and new features.
In this article we explore the relation between global network visibility as seen by the Routing Information Service (RIS) and the length of announced prefixes.
With the IPv4 address space nearing its end, we are closely monitoring the number of address not yet assigned or allocated. See below one way of measuring them.
This is the next in a series of articles about the new active measurements network, which now has a name: "RIPE Atlas". In this article I will describe the current planning for the pilot. This is also a call for sponsors which will be needed to make the measurement network really big.
Geoff Huston investigated to what extent the IPv6 Internet is polluted by "background radiation". Find below some interesting results and observations.
Why YOU may want to host a small probe to help with large scale active Internet measurements.
This data is a set of active measurements (ping/traceroute) collected by the NLANR research group. The data consists of measurements in a mesh of up to 130 vantage points and the measurements ran between 1998 and 2006. This data is useful for longitudinal study of the Internet. The data available from the RIPE Data Repository is a remastered version of the original data that was available from the NLANR website.
