I am not sure it belongs here, would be nice to have a list of this though. Off the top of my head, we use the following external resources to demonstrate visibility: https://stat.ripe.net/ - with all the nice widgets for embedding etc. Cyclops BGP http://cyclops.cs.ucla.edu/ BGPmon.net http://routeviews.org/ and http://bgplay.routeviews.org/ - note bgplay is also integrated into RIPEstat traceroute.org - I use this less now that http://RING.nlnog.org has expanded so nicely, but for non-ring-users pingdom (has no IPv6, and it really is becoming a problem, where to monitor IPv6 services from outside?)
