2.1.7 Mirrored Databases

The RIPE Global Resource Service (GRS) provides resource information mirrored from several other databases. These are held in physically separate databases but logically part of the RIPE Database service. They can be queried using several of the RIPE Database interfaces. The information is updated daily from the authoritative source.

The following databases are mirrored:

  • AFRINIC
  • APNIC
  • ARIN
  • Jpirr
  • LACNIC
  • RADb
  • (RIPE GRS)


To view the up-to-date list of mirrored databases, perform the following query:

whois.ripe.net -q sources

More information about this is available in the RIPE Database Query Reference Manual.
