Measuring Countries and IXPs with RIPE Atlas

Emile Aben — Mar 23, 2015 01:55 PM

Measuring Countries and IXPs with RIPE Atlas We've been working with various Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) over the last few months to see how RIPE Atlas active measurements can provide insight into how they are keeping local traffic local. This could help to improve performance and efficiency for IXPs and their members. To explore this we've created a set of python scripts to analyse Internet traffic paths between RIPE Atlas probes in a given country, and see if we can identify if they traverse IXPs.

Visualising RIPE Atlas Anchor Measurements

Salim Gasmi — Mar 17, 2015 09:37 AM

Visualising RIPE Atlas Anchor Measurements We visualised the measurements collected by our RIPE Atlas anchor. This allows us to analyse the quality of our connectivity and topology changes and to help debugging network issues. This monitoring page is publicly available.

Tracebox, a Tool to Detect Middleboxes

Julien Colmonts — Feb 25, 2015 03:35 PM

Tracebox, a Tool to Detect Middleboxes The increasing number of middleboxes (such as firewalls, NATs, proxies, or Deep Packet Inspection) has raised concerns over the impact of such middleboxes on the network and the possibility to innovate. As a result, operators and researchers are studying the distribution and behaviour of middleboxes in large networks. In this article, we will describe a tool called Tracebox that helps in detecting middleboxes. Tracebox was developed at the Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL) and at university of Liège (ULg) in 2013 and funded by Change (INFSO-ICT-257422), mPlane (ICT-318627), and Bestcom IAP. We believe that adding tracebox-like capabilities to RIPE Atlas could give network operators a deeper insight into their systems and help debugging network problems.

NTP Measurements with RIPE Atlas

Philip Homburg — Feb 17, 2015 02:55 PM

NTP Measurements with RIPE Atlas This article describes how RIPE Atlas probes and anchors maintain their clocks, and how accurate these clocks are. We also plan to make the NTP measurements we describe here available as an additional measurement type for RIPE Atlas users.

#facebookdown? What Internet Measurement Data Shows

Emile Aben — Jan 27, 2015 11:55 PM

#facebookdown? What Internet Measurement Data Shows While at this point it is still unclear what exactly happened at Facebook this morning (27 January), we collect data on the Internet control plane (BGP) and data plane that allows us to provide some insight into what happened with Facebook's connectivity to the rest of the Internet.

Distribution of RIPE Atlas Probes

Emile Aben — Dec 16, 2014 01:55 PM

Distribution of RIPE Atlas Probes As the RIPE Atlas network continues to grow, it's useful for ambassadors and potential probes hosts to easily see where we already have probes deployed and where we'd like more probes installed. We created a few useful maps to help with this.

Experiment Proposal to Improve K-root

Suzanne Taylor Muzzin — Oct 29, 2014 05:15 PM

Experiment Proposal to Improve K-root We used RIPE Atlas to measure latency times to K-root, and we believe we can improve those times by adding new nodes to K-root in strategic locations. Here, we propose the idea of developing an experiment that would let us measure this potential improvement.

RIPE Atlas: New Measurements UI and Tagging

Suzanne Taylor Muzzin — Oct 28, 2014 10:30 AM

RIPE Atlas: New Measurements UI and Tagging We're very excited to announce an all-new user interface (UI) for RIPE Atlas measurements. Users can now schedule, monitor and manage their own customised measurements more efficiently than ever before, and can now make use of the tagging feature when selecting probes for use in those measurements. Learn more about the new features below, explore the new interface, and let us know what you think.

RIPE Atlas Value Proposition

Suzanne Taylor Muzzin — Oct 24, 2014 02:50 PM

During its meeting in September, the RIPE NCC presented the RIPE NCC Executive Board with a value proposition document detailing the value that RIPE Atlas can bring to network operators, researchers and the Internet community as a whole. The board asked the RIPE NCC to publish this document, which we have done here. We also plan to incorporate much of its content into the RIPE Atlas website so that RIPE Atlas users can clearly understand the different ways this global Internet measurement network can be used and the many unique benefits it provides.

Propagation of Longer-than-/24 IPv4 Prefixes

Emile Aben — Oct 02, 2014 05:10 PM

Under ARIN's Number Resource Policy Manual (NRPM) Section 4.10, the IPv4 address block 23.128/10 is reserved for allocations and assignments dedicated to facilitate IPv6 deployment. The maximum allocation size is a /24; the minimum allocation size is a /28. There has been much discussion on the NANOG mailing list about the usability/routability of prefixes longer than a /24. In order to try to provide some additional data on this topic, the RIPE NCC has requested a small block of address space from the reserved /10 to test these types of prefixes.

New Terms and Conditions as RIPE Atlas Becomes Production Service

Vesna Manojlovic — Sep 15, 2014 05:45 PM

New Terms and Conditions as RIPE Atlas Becomes Production Service RIPE Atlas is transitioning from a pilot project to a production service. As such, we want to clarify the terms and conditions that describe the use of the service and spell out both the user's and the RIPE NCC's obligations. Here we present a draft of these terms and ask for feedback, as we want to ensure we keep the community involved in every step of the process.
