[ris-int] FYI: RISwhois usage statistics
Wed Jul 28 20:40:25 CEST 2004
RISwhois was announced early december 2003 and presented in the january 2004 RIPE47 meeting. After that we didn't do any marketing (other than provide pointers on ris webpages) I just had a rough look at the access statistics (as logged to /var/log/local.log and archived in /var/log/ARCHIVE/local.log*.gz) and found it nice to see there's continued intereset for RISwhois from external users. Excluding any of the RIPE NCC and RIPE meeting addresses (193.0.[0-9].*) RISwhois had 2,325,338 connections[*] from 815 distinct hosts. Top 10 users: IP #connections 126.96.36.199 932354 188.8.131.52 478159 184.108.40.206 363763 220.127.116.11 345502 18.104.22.168 58583 22.214.171.124 45000 126.96.36.199 37448 188.8.131.52 21005 184.108.40.206 15348 220.127.116.11 14242 halfweg.ripe.net made 16150 connections, which I take should all be attributed to the CGI web interface on www.ris.ripe.net So although started from a perspective of improving TTM's IP<>AS mapping, it seems we did add something useful/interesting to the RIS service portfolio. -- Rene [*] like whois.ripe.net, riswhoisd can keep a connection open on user request, thus #connections is not necessarily equal to #queries answered.
