On preparation for NZNOG 2017 next week, I'd like to pitch the RIPE
Atlas project to this audience.
RIPE Atlas https://atlas.ripe.net/ is global measurement network
composed by hundreds of lightweight probes, that allow their users to
run a variety of network measurements. The probes are small, powered by
USB, and let you run Ping, Traceroute, lightweight HTTP, DNS lookups,
etc. It provides the convenience of running measurements from different
networks, very useful for troubleshooting and monitoring, as well as
There are 82 active probes in New Zealand, and we would like to cover
most of the active ASNs in the country with a probe. NZRS uses RIPE
Atlas for some of our research work, like Detecting if NZ ISP are doing
<http://blog.nzrs.net.nz/dnssec-validation-at-spark-nz/> or testing
local ISP resolvers for centricity
<http://blog.nzrs.net.nz/resolvers-centricity-detection/>, as well as
our efforts to map the Internet topology of NZ that will be presented at
Some NZNOG members are RIPE Atlas ambassadors, like Dean Pemberton or
myself, we can get you a probe if you are interested on hosting one.
I'll bring a few to Tauranga next week, feel free to contact me if you
want one. If there is more demand than available probes, I can get a
bunch directly from RIPE and post them to you later.
