RIPEstat Quarterly Planning

This page details the work we'll do on RIPEstat in the coming quarter, how you can give your input on that work and our reaction to that input.

We have three objectives in publishing our quarterly planning:

  1. We want to be transparent about the work we are doing
  2. We want your input on that work and our planning, and we want to document that input, and let you know if and when we can add your suggestions to our planning
  3. We want an open dialogue with members and community on developments around RIPEstat

We launched this initiative in Q2 2022, and we are open to improving what we publish here and how we do that. So let us know if there are ways we can better present our plans.

If you have any suggestions on how we can improve RIPEstat, you can share them through the RIPEstat Feature Tracker.

We will update this page as our activities progress and continue to share updates on RIPE Labs, on the RIPE NCC Membership Discussion and MAT Working Group (WG) mailing lists, and at RIPE Meetings and other events.

Q3 2022 Plans

Last Updated: 24 June 2022

Item Activity Description Status
1 Migration to the cloud We are moving parts of RIPEstat to the cloud to make our infrastructure more efficient, resilient and reduce latency for our global user base.

We have started with small, low-impact backends and plan to move to more complex parts of the service later. First results are expected to be available in Q3 2022.

In progress

Work continues from Q2 2022.

2 Service quality monitoring

We want to improve the monitoring of service quality to provide a more reliable service.

We started with specification testing for the Data API and will continue over the course of 2022.

In progress

Work continues from Q2 2022.

3 Data API revamp

We are revamping the Data API to make the growing number of data calls more consistent and easier to use.

We expect the work to be completed by Q3 2022.

In progress

Work continues from Q2 2022.

4 Open-sourcing the RIPEstat widgets

We will make the source code of RIPEstat widgets available for the community.

We plan to open-source the RIPEstat widgets as part of a sustainable long-term maintenance of the old RIPEstat UI.

In progress

Work continues from Q2 2022.

5 Improved UI testing

We want to implement automatic UI testing to create a more reliable UI.

The work is expected to finish at the end of Q3 2022.

In progress

Work continues from Q2 2022.

6 Improve the blocklist feature

Triggered by input from the Anti-Abuse WG we are improving the blocklist feature on RIPEstat.

A renaming of the service offering already happened in 2021 and in Q2 2022 we added new blocklists.

In progress

Work continues from Q2 2022.

7 ROAs in Routing Consistency

Based on a feature request, we want to show RPKI ROAs in the Routing Consistency UI (UI2020). The feature is now available and in Q3 we will be focusing on developing the widget.

In progress

Work continues from Q2 2022.

Community Input on Planning

We want the community to contribute to our plans and suggest additional work items. Please share your comments with us via the RIPEstat Feature Tracker or post them on the RIPE NCC Membership Discussion and MAT WG mailing lists. And we'll be monitoring all the other channels where people talk about these services.

When we receive feedback that can significantly impact our planning or that needs a further response, we will add it to the table below.
