RIS Quarterly Planning

This page details the work we'll do on the Routing Information Service (RIS) 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 RIS

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.

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

Q4 2022 Plans

Last Updated: 26 September 2022

Item Activity Description Status
1 Processing jobs migration

Migration of processing jobs for RIS to newer clusters.

The work started in 2021, with some preparation work taking place in previous years. It is expected that the project will be finished by the end of 2022.

In progress

Work continues from Q2 2022.

2 Improvements to RIS data through peering coordination

We aim to add at least one peer per country in our service region that is not yet covered in RIS.

The peering strategy page on the website will also be updated.

In progress

Work continues from Q2 2022.

3 Announce new prototypes

We developed the following new prototypes and are collecting feedback on their usefulness:

  1. Per peer dump files
  2. Per-RRC BGP dump files
  3. Peer metadata files

In progress

Work continues from Q2 2022.

4 Test public kafka protype

We will test with a few volunteers from the community if providing kafka as an additional data access model will benefit them.

We expect this activity to finish by the end of Q4 2022.

In progress

Work continues from Q3 2022.

5 Performance metrics

We aim to publish RIS performance metrics on our website.

We expect this activity to finish by the end of Q4 2022.

In progress

Work continues from Q3 2022.

6 RIS Live performance improvements

We are making architecture changes to RIS LIVE, which will allow for a more predictable latency. Further improvements will follow from using new kafka topics.

In progress

Work continues from Q3 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 or post them on the RIPE NCC Membership Discussion, MAT WG and RIS Users 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.

Reference Input RIPE NCC Reaction
 RIS-2022-#01 Users asked us to publish RIS performance metrics on our website.

We agreed with the feedback and started working on this request (see item 5 above).

We first recorded this request in Q3 2022.
