During this seventh interactive live demo, the development team explained and demonstrated the tool's new features and functionality.

General improvements

  • Performance improvements
    • We developed performance monitoring tools (currently only used internally) that shows where the most time is spent
    • It will help us to find bottlenecks and address them
    • We can zoom in to get more detailed information for one particular plug-in
    • Each query has an ID that can be used to investigate performance issues more
    • Send us the query ID if you experience performance issues of a particular query
  • Geolocation user interface improvements
    • Information is clustered or aggregated when there is too much data available
    • You can zoom into the aggregated points to see more fine grained data
    • Pie graph showing the distribution of addresses for any AS
