The Seismograph And Other New RIPE Atlas Features
The Seismograph And Other New RIPE Atlas Features
Vesna Manojlovic — 05 Sep 2013

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. … Read more

Improved Routing Information Available via RIPEstat
Improved Routing Information Available via RIPEstat
Fatemah Mafi — 23 Aug 2013

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.… Read more

Future of RIPE NCC Technical Services
Kaveh Ranjbar — 20 Aug 2013

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. … Read more

All IP Addresses Are Equal? "dot-zero" Addresses Are Less Equal
Stéphane Bortzmeyer — 03 Jul 2013

In theory, all IP addresses are the same, and you can allocate them at random without a problem. 192.168.1.2 is certainly not better or worse than 192.168.1.15, right? But, in practice, certain IP addresses are regarded as "special" by some implementations and do not yield the same user experience. This is the case for the "dot-zero", IPv4 addresses in which the last byte is zero.… Read more

Using RIPE Atlas User Defined Measurements to Find the Most Popular Instances of a DNS Anycast Name Server
Stéphane Bortzmeyer — 03 May 2013

A DNS anycast name server has several physical instances, all behind the same IP address. Which one is used by a RIPE Atlas probe depends on the location of the probe in the BGP space. RIPE Atlas can query the physical identity of the probe and therefore help to determine which instances have the largest user base.… Read more

Introducing the RIPE NCC Roadmap
Introducing the RIPE NCC Roadmap
Mirjam Kühne — 22 Apr 2013

We often get asked about the status of our different services and projects, and while we frequently publish updates on RIPE Labs, we now have a new tool that makes it easier to stay informed. We're happy to announce the RIPE NCC Roadmap, where you can get an overview of all the latest developments and future plans for these services in one place. This prototype, which is hosted on RIPE Labs, will be further developed as we receive your feedback, so please let us know what you think!… Read more

RIPE Atlas Anchors Pilot: Update on Phase One
RIPE Atlas Anchors Pilot: Update on Phase One
Vesna Manojlovic — 15 Feb 2013

RIPE Atlas anchors are a more powerful version of a RIPE Atlas probe. They will act as targets to enable regional measurements towards them, and will allow more measurements to be performed from them. Together with the community, we are currently testing the capabilities and features of these RIPE Atlas anchors during a pilot phase. Production service will start in Q2 2013. … Read more
