  14. 14. Questions?14Friday, April 19, 2013
  15. 15. Background Info -How Atlas Works15Friday, April 19, 2013
  16. 16. • For accurate maps we need many vantage points- Small probes- Easily deployable- USB powered- 24 x 365 capable• Hosted and sponsored by organisations and end-users- ISPs, Internet Exchange Points, individuals...- Free of charge for volunteers who host individual probesHardware Devices: Probes1616Friday, April 19, 2013
  17. 17. Who Can Perform Which Measurements?• RIPE NCC is performing “built-in” measurements_From all the probes, towards root name servers and ourinfrastructure_Periodically: few times a day (55 million / day)_pings, traceroutes and DNS queries_Data stored on Hbase/Hadoop clusters_Results available to everyone!• Probe hosts and RIPE NCC members performcustomised measurements using the targets of theirchoice and desired frequency_(5 million / day)• Anchoring measurements coming up soon_Each probe will measure 4-5 “anchors” as a regional baseline_RIPE Atlas anchor hosts can perform their own customizedmeasurements 1717Friday, April 19, 2013
  18. 18. Credits System• By hosting a probe, a host earns credits_As a reward for making his/her probe available to other users, forperforming measurements from that probe towards any target_Hosts earn 21,000+ credits per day, as long as the probe is connected• In order to schedule customised measurements, users spendcredits_ping costs 10 credits, traceroute 20, etc._Daily limit applies• Credits system introduced to ensure fairness and protectsystem from overload• Extra credits can be earned by: being a RIPE NCC member,hosting a RIPE Atlas anchor or sponsoring multiple probes1818Friday, April 19, 2013
