RIPE Atlas collects a lot of measurements. But how much of the Internet are we actually measuring? We had a sense that with a limited amount of extra load on the system, we could dramatically increase the number of router IPs seen on a given day in RIPE Atlas - and that means measuring more of the …

Based in Amsterdam, NL
I'm a system architect/research coordinator at the RIPE NCC, where I work in the science group. I'm a chemist by training, but have been working since 1998 on Internet related things, as a sysadmin, security consultant, web developer and researcher. I am interested in technology changes (like IPv6 deployment), Internet measurement, data analysis, data visualisation, sustainability and security. I'd like to bring research and operations closer together, ie. do research that is operationally relevant. When I'm not working I like to make music (electric guitar, bass and drums), do sports (swimming, (inline) skating, bouldering, soccer), and try to be a good parent.

The European Football Championships is the third most watched sporting event in the world (after the World Cup and the Olympics). Euro 2012 takes place in Poland and Ukraine from 8 June, so we are teaming up with Euro-IX (The European Internet Exchange Point Association) to look at Internet Exchang…
This article is looking at different measurements done at the network level and at the end user level and the results seen through these measurements.
RIPE Atlas is releasing a new service for Local Internet Registries (LIRs): if you are a member of the RIPE NCC, you can test the reachability of your IPv6 website from all IPv6-capable RIPE Atlas probes (currently more than 600).
In this article we will be delving into the behaviour of the Linux implementation of TCP, and looking at the way in which TCP establishes a connection. There are socket options in Linux that cause the TCP handshake to behave in a rather curious way.
After we observed increased query load on the root name severs recently, we did some investigation and analysis which is described in the article below.
World IPv6 Day took place on 8 June 2011. The RIPE NCC did a number of measurements both before and during World IPv6 Day. We've done an initial analysis of the data and would like to share our first impressions and results with you.
RIPE NCC and BBN have been working on measuring the impact of 6to4 on the latency of Internet traffic. This article describes the measurement techniques used for this survey, and some initial findings based on measurements conducted at BBN.
A year ago we introduced IPv6 RIPEness - a system that rates IPv6 deployment of Local Internet Registries based on certain criteria. It was meant to encourage LIRs to deploy IPv6. Now, one year later, we are proud to present the progress of this project.
