IPv6 RIPEness Update and Methodology
This is the first in a series of "interesting graphs" we are publishing in CircleID on a regular basis. The graph will always be published on RIPE Labs as well together with additional information and details. Here we will also describe the methodology used when producing those statistics.
Guido van Rossum sent me an email saying: "I'm glad you're taking up this subject. I like that you wrote up some of the negative responses you received -- I've seen those too, and I think it's pretty normal to see a range of responses. But that doesn't mean you can't make progress! We can't fix our biases if we're not aware of them, and sometime you have to start by over-compensating just to end up in the right place eventually."
“Never heard of a DNS query type AAA before. Is that IPv5 protocol?”
Haha. Thanks, for pointing this out. It's fixed now.
“Where can I find the IPv4 space amount that RIPE hold ?”
Yi, If you go to this page https://labs.ripe.net/statistics/?tags=ipv4 and scroll all the way to the bottom, you will see the number of remaining IPv4 addresses. If you click on the title of the graph, you wil see another pge with more information about the RIPE NCC's available IPv4 address pool. Please let us know if you have any more questions.
