RIS Live

RIS Live is a feed that offers BGP messages in real-time. It collects information from the RIS Route Collectors (RRCs) and uses a WebSocket JSON API to monitor and detect routing events around the world. A non-interactive full stream ("firehose") is also available.

RIS Live

DNSMON

DNS Monitoring Service (DNSMON) is an active measurement service that provides a comprehensive, objective and up-to-date overview of the quality of the service offered by high-level Domain Name System (DNS) servers.

IXP Country Jedi (Alpha)

The IXP Country Jedi provides visualisations of Internet traffic paths (traceroutes) between RIPE Atlas probes located in the same country to answer the following questions: Do the target paths take out-of-country detours? Do we see IXPs in the paths?

Support RIPE Atlas

RIPE Atlas has grown to become the world’s largest active Internet measurement system thanks to its vibrant community of users and probe and anchor hosts. The more probes we can get up and running in networks across the world, the better it is for everyone using RIPE Atlas and the Internet as a whole!

DNS

The RIPE NCC operates two independent DNS services. Both of these are provided by distributed nodes using IPv4 and IPv6 anycast.

The first service is K-root, one of the 13 Internet root name servers.

The second is Authoritative DNS (AuthDNS), which hosts reverse DNS zones, ripe.net, e164.arpa and some other infrastructure zones, and provides secondary DNS for various ccTLDs.
