RIPE NCC members can browse RIPE database objects with history in RIPEstat for a couple of weeks as a demonstration. Please check it out and let us know what you think.
Bringing high-quality independent measurements to your network!
RIPE Atlas user-defined measurements are here! Hosts and sponsors can begin creating personalised measurements from probes around the globe.
Following up from the recently published IPv6 RIPEness update, we are now looking at the IPv6 RIPEness of Local Internet Registries relative to their age and relative to their size.
As part of our effort to make an evolution plan for the RIPE Test Traffic Measurement service, we conducted a survey among TTM hosts. Find below the results and suggested next steps.
I like the related article in Atlantic ("I Spent Two Years Trying to Fix the Gender Imbalance in My (STEM) Stories") from February 2018, and a quote: "Crucially, I tracked how I was doing in a simple spreadsheet. I can’t overstate the importance of that: It is a vaccine against self-delusion. It prevents me from wrongly believing that all is well." https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2018/02/i-spent-two-years-trying-to-fix-the-gender-imbalance-in-my-stories/552404/

Thanks, Stephane! In addition to Stephane's tools being updated to enable this new measurement, Hugo Salgado "patched" the "official" CLI toolset, and since then the new version has been published by Chris Amin: https://github.com/RIPE-NCC/ripe-atlas-tools/ So now there are multiple ways to measure latency towards your web server using command-line tools!
“Hi Vesna, thanks for covering this! Does the Country Jedi have to be installed from GitHub to use? Or is there an online portal? I am not sure how to get it to work, but I want to share it with people (and encourage them to use it). I liked Mirjam's presentation at the CEE Peering Days, and I think it could be really useful. Feel free to ping me on another platform too.”
Hi Michael, thanks for your interest! Yes, IXP-Country-Jedi is available both as an installed version, and as an "online portal" - however, it is still a prototype! You can find the latest data per country here: http://sg-pub.ripe.net/emile/ixp-country-jedi/latest/ For example, Serbia: http://sg-pub.ripe.net/emile/ixp-country-jedi/latest/RS/ The additional "Per AS report" is only available for Greece, for now: http://sg-pub.ripe.net/petros/ixpcountryjedi/2017-04-01/GR/perasn/index.html And the code on GitHub is here: https://github.com/emileaben/ixp-country-jedi I hope you have fun using it, and thanks for pointing people to our tools! Cheers, Vesna
This is a pair of frequent questions: 1) I have too many credits - who can I give them to? 2) I need more credits - who wants to give me some? Usually, people post their offers & requests to either "email@example.com" mailing list, or on Twitter, with a hashtag #RIPEAtlas or mentioning the user @RIPE_Atlas So please check and use either one of those. Thanks! Vesna

Geert Jan, thank you for helping us to grow RIPE Atlas in the "not so easy" parts of the world! As for your questions, we considered them, and I would like to separate two aspects: - We are indeed distribute probes (also thanks to ambassadors like you) to all parts of the world. However, probes are still predominantly deployed in the parts of the Internet that is already covered pretty well - maybe that's due to the nature of the ”network effect”. - This specific article was not looking into the numbers of probes that were lost, postponed, or for other reasons *never connected*. All probes in the analysis and the graphs above were connected at some point in their lifetime, and then either continued to live or "died”. We will continue to observe RIPE Atlas probe distribution, deployment and lifetime, and we will publish an update when there are any new developments.
