The Waikato Internet Traffic Storage (WITS) Passive Datasets

Emile Aben — Jun 2010
This data is a mirror of the passive (i.e. traffic trace) datasets stored at the WITS archive that is maintained by the WAND research group. Because bandwidth is expensive in New Zealand it is very beneficial for the WAND research group to have this data hosted elsewhere.
Data Supplier:
The WAND Network Research Group
Access Requirements:
Data Access:

Hi Harish,

the behaviour you describe is typical for the situation where you have a RIPE Labs username and password, but you haven't accepted the Terms and Conditions for accessing the data yet. To do that follow the 'Acceptance of Terms and Conditions for datasets'-link in the description above. After that you should be able to access the data. If problems still persist, please let us know at labs@ripe.net so we can look into the logs.

Hi, when I try to wget Waikato traffic files from these servers the connection gets dropped after a few seconds and I'm left with a piece of the file. WAND describes this behavior would occur on their own servers for ipv4 downloaders. I am using ipv6 and I'm able to download from their servers, so I'm a bit confused why it happens on these servers.

Please let me know if you can reproduce this, and if I should provide more information.

Many thanks in advance,
Eyal

Hi Eyal,

I've tried to reproduce your issue but it seems that I can't: the downloads work fine for me, and I get files of the appropriate size. There could be some on-path problem preventing the download from completing successfully for you; could you try different locations to download from? Alternatively, you could try to do partial downloads using HTTP range requests (see e.g. -C or -r in the curl manpage).

As we are unable to reproduce your issue, there's not much that we can do to investigate the problem. If you find anything else, please let us know!

Thanks,

Paul de Weerd
