Visualising Bandwidth Capacity and Network Activity in RIPEstat Using M-Lab Data

Vasco Asturiano — Sep 09, 2013 11:45 AM

Visualising Bandwidth Capacity and Network Activity in RIPEstat Using M-Lab Data As a result of the cooperation between the RIPE NCC and Measurement Lab (M-Lab), you can now visualise the bandwidth profiles and network activity of IP prefixes and individual countries. This is provided as RIPEstat widgets using data collected by the M-Lab platform. See below for details about the measurement methodology and relevant use cases.

Dry-Run Testing in the RIPE Database

Denis Walker — Sep 09, 2013 11:00 AM

Have you ever wanted to test an update to the RIPE Database, without actually changing anything in the database? Well now you can "dry-run" it - see what will happen without changing anything.

The Seismograph And Other New RIPE Atlas Features

Vesna Manojlovic — Sep 05, 2013 01:40 PM

The Seismograph And Other New RIPE Atlas Features While developing RIPE Atlas, we are engaging with the community to get feedback on the features we are working on, and to help us with distributing the probes. This article highlights Seismograph, zoomable ping graphs, and other new features we have made available for RIPE Atlas users over the last two months. We also announce where you can meet RIPE Atlas developers and "ambassadors" in the following months.

All IP Addresses Are Not The Same

Geoff Huston — Sep 02, 2013 10:25 AM

All IP Addresses Are Not The Same One IP address is much the same as another – right? There’s hardly a difference between and is there? They are just encoded integer values, and aside from numerological considerations, one address value is as good or bad as any other – right? So IP addresses are much the same as each other and an after-market in IP addresses should be like many other markets in undistinguished commodity goods. Right?

New RIPEstat Webpages

Suzanne Taylor Muzzin — Aug 28, 2013 03:25 PM

New RIPEstat Webpages We've revamped the RIPEstat webpages to make it easier to find the information you're looking for. We've added more information about the different available interfaces and data sources, expanded the FAQ, included a roadmap that details current development, focused on data analyses, made a complete widget list and more.

A Question of DNS Protocols

Geoff Huston — Aug 28, 2013 09:20 AM

A Question of DNS Protocols In this article we are looking at possible ways to prevent denial of service attacks. One solution could be to use TCP instead of UDP for large DNS responses. We conducted an experiment to find out what the resolution failure rate would be.

Improved Routing Information Available via RIPEstat

Fatemah Mafi — Aug 23, 2013 02:30 PM

Improved Routing Information Available via RIPEstat Our Routing Information Service (RIS) has been collecting global BGP routing information for 12 years. During this period, many different interfaces to analyse and visualise accumulated data have been developed. In line with our long-term goals to provide more consolidated services, we will be integrating the RIS interface’s tools and services into RIPEstat.

Using the RIPE Database as an Internet Routing Registry

Denis Walker — Aug 22, 2013 02:55 PM

The RIPE Database operates as an open, public database for routing information. This information is not restricted to the RIPE NCC service region or to resources administered by the RIPE NCC.

Future of RIPE NCC Technical Services

Kaveh Ranjbar — Aug 20, 2013 02:50 PM

As the new Chief Information Officer at the RIPE NCC, I’d like to take this opportunity to share with you some of my ideas about the future direction of the technical services we offer to the community. This includes focusing on RIPE Atlas as the RIPE NCC’s data collection system, RIPEstat as the RIPE NCC’s consolidated point for data retrieval, service agreements and other plans for hosted services like K-root, authoritative DNS servers and RIS data collectors, and a greater focus on data analysis.
