First of all, best wishes for this new year to each of you.
We currently have one TTbox running and we use it from time to time to check the
status of our network. Now, we'd like to know if it is possible and advisable
to place a total of about 15 TTboxes in our network, each box on a different
part of it.
If such a setup is possible, we'd then use these probes to calculate and report
SLA measurements (inside and outside our network) to our users, by the mean of
some software (still to be written) using the ROOT data of these boxes. These
measurements would be interesting to us because of high accuracy and being
performed by a 3rd party. However, we are aware that adding 15 boxes in a
single network is not a big gain for the community. So, would this be
acceptable and welcome?
Another question on the same issue, what happens in case of hardware failure of
a TTbox when the warranty period is over. I guess the RIPE NCC doesn't provide
any service for this and that the solution is to buy a new one or to get the
current one being repaired by ourselves. In this last case, for example after a
disk failure, would the reinstallation of the system be performed by the RIPE NCC?
