Posting to the list hoping somebody has already found the answer :)

Is there a way to filter by probe architecture, or perhaps software vs
hardware probes?

Hello Marty,

You can look into Magellan[1] and use Probe tags[2]

For example - To list all software probes currently connected within India,

ripe-atlas probe-search  --country IN --status 1 --limit 100 --tag
system-software

To list all software probes currently connected within India which are v4,

ripe-atlas probe-search  --country IN --status 1 --limit 100 --tag system-v4

Similarly, for creating a measurement,

ripe-atlas measure traceroute --target cloud.centos.org --probes 100
--no-report --from-country in --include-tag system-v4

Hope this helps.
