How can RIS data be used?

here is practically no limit to how RIS data can be used.

Examples:

  • "Internet weather", i.e. end-to-end connectivity issues that users actually experience
  • Route flaps
  • Historic development of the default-free routing routing table
  • Monitoring illegitimate routing entries, e.g. Martians, prefix overlaps etc.
