<div class="content legacycomment"> <p> Last year IANA updated their lists of blocks of AS&nbsp;Numbers assigned to which registry. They took into account the early registration transfers (ERX) that have happened over recent years. For each ERX, a previous contiguous block of assignments became three assignment blocks. Even if it was only one single AS Number in the middle of the block that had moved. The RIPE&nbsp;NCC&nbsp;then re-synchronised the RIPE&nbsp;Database with this new information. Then as you pointed out, overnight there was a big increase in the number of AS-BLOCK objects. </p> </div>
