RIPE Atlas

  1. 1. RIPE AtlasContinuing DevelopmentAnn Barcombabarcomb@ripe.net
  2. 2. What is Atlas• Next-generation active measurement network• Geographically spread vantage points• Small, easily-deployable probes – USB powered – Hardwired trust material – No open ports – Don’t listen to local traffic – Firmware can be remotely updatedAnn Barcomb, 2 December 2011 2
  3. 3. Benefits• More vantage points• Continuous measurements• Cost-effective compared to individual efforts• Independent source – Governments: comparative data about connectivity – LIRs: detect network abnormalities, optimise – Researchers: long baseline for trend analysis – Community: new tools based on aggregated data, situational awarenessAnn Barcomb, 2 December 2011 3
  4. 4. MapsRTT to Fixed DestinationsAnn Barcomb, 2 December 2011 4
  5. 5. MapsDNS Anycast Check (c-root)Ann Barcomb, 2 December 2011 5
  6. 6. MapsComparative DNS Root RTTAnn Barcomb, 2 December 2011 6
  7. 7. User Defined Measurements (UDM) Strategy• Start with a small set of variables• Enable features over time• Allow more resource usage over time• Add measurement types based on demandAnn Barcomb, 2 December 2011 7
  8. 8. UDM Implementation • Tied to credit system • Centralised scheduling • Consideration for host’s requirements • In beta testing – Promising resultsAnn Barcomb, 2 December 2011 8
  9. 9. UDM (beta) • Currently: – Ping (v4/v6) – Traceroute (v4/v6) • Upcoming: – DNS queryAnn Barcomb, 2 December 2011 9
  10. 10. UDM (beta) • Currently: – Worldwide • Upcoming: – Region – Country – AS – Prefix – ProbeAnn Barcomb, 2 December 2011 10
  11. 11. UDM (beta) • Configurable aspects: – Resolve on probe – Timing – Number of probes – Response to low number of probes – Intervals – Notifications – PublicAnn Barcomb, 2 December 2011 11
  12. 12. Results of ‘ping’ UDMAnn Barcomb, 2 December 2011 12
  13. 13. Planned Developments• Roll-out of UDM• More UDM types• Real-time access to (raw) data• APIs to the system• Automatic alerts/notifications• More (types of) maps• More probes distributed and installedAnn Barcomb, 2 December 2011 13
  14. 14. Probes Distributed• Register for a probe• Collect your probeAnn Barcomb, 2 December 2011 14
