[ris-int] new ris tools released
Fri Oct 12 12:17:13 CEST 2007
Hi all, we've just released some new tools for RIS, which may also benefit you :) The most notable change is the introduction of the AS dashboard and prefix dashboard. These dashboards show an overview of most information RIS has about an AS or prefix. For ASes, think prefixes, age of prefixes, transits, old bogon filters. For prefixes, think visibility and stability. Besides this, we have made improvements to the search, prefixinuse and asinuse tools. - The search can now summarise updates for a clearer view of events - Prefixinuse now also displays prefixes from a block that are 'free' and shows what percentage of space is still unannounced - ASinuse should run faster Focus with these improvements is to improve the presentation of the data, making more data available in a clearer and more attractive way. For example, see the prefix dashboard of the RIPE meeting network prefix, which had some reachability problems: http://www.ris.ripe.net/dashboard/22.214.171.124/22 The prefix graph for 3333, our office network, nicely shows the build- up of our prefixes: http://www.ris.ripe.net/dashboard/3333 It also shows our transits, although this is difficult to estimate and wrong in some cases. The k-root dashboard shows an /28 in the prefix list - seen by two peers. The prefix graph is also quite nice: http://www.ris.ripe.net/ dashboard/25152 If you check/uncheck the "strip prepending" box on the AS path lengths tab, you can clearly see the prepending done by k-root. The dashboards for the k-root anycast prefixes also show something interesting: http://www.ris.ripe.net/dashboard/126.96.36.199/24 http://www.ris.ripe.net/dashboard/188.8.131.52/23 If you look at the "list of peers not seeing the prefix" below the map, you can see 20932 doesn't send the /24, and 26943 doesn't send either. Note that there still is a small bug in the AS dashboard - it shows a prefix has stopped being announced in some cases when it is not. These tools are public now, so feel free to tell others. However, we are not doing an external announcement until the RIPE meeting, to prevent everyone from already knowing most things we'll say in the RIS update. So, don't shout around on lists/websites/etc. yet. Obviously, if you have any ideas, let us know. cheers, -- Erik Romijn RIPE NCC software engineer http://www.ripe.net/ Information Services dept.
