Citylink's official Debian mirror (ftp.nz.debian.org) is apparently
again broken (not even listening on port 80 from where I'm sitting).
Would anyone be seriously interested in donating rack space, national
transit, or hardware to the cause of another official Debian mirror for
Having reliable and cheap access to free software projects like Debian
is critically important, and having a second official mirror seems like
a no-brainer to me.
I am very happy to donate my time to admin and monitor any equipment
provided for this, and to liase with the Debian project as required.
Perhaps Citylink could give us some insight in to the traffic levels
their existing mirrors see?
I just wanted to thank NZNOG for allowing me to come speak at your
conference. I had a great time and I wrote about it here:
As loud, fat and ugly American I have a tendency to overstay my welcome,
but if there is interest I'd love to come back next year. We are working
on a project called OpenNMS Drift and the company sponsoring it just
asked us to add OpenConfig and gRPC telemetry support. The work will be
completed by NZNOG 2019, so that is a potential topic.
Thanks again for having me.

Did anyone happen to find a spare medium size nznog shirt? I seem to have left mine somewhere by accident and I suspect there aren't any left. Not an emergency but I thought I would ask anyway.

Firstly I'd like to start by thanking the NZNOG community and in particular
the Trustees and conference organisers for supporting REANNZ and the Faucet
team to deploy a Faucet based network again for this years conference.
As seen by many young development projects, it's often a challenge to find
places to get good production operational experience. Running the network
each year at NZNOG has provided some great experience for the team and
we've learnt lots each year. Thanks for everyones patience as we've got
So - some statistics from the network through to today:
* 1799 GB total data forwarded by data-plane
* 2,240,472,504 packets forwarded by data-plane
* 274 dhcp leases issued
* 169 unique mac addresses
Some slightly less common statistics that we get thanks to the new
monitoring inside Faucet:
* 1,345,598 L2 learn events inside faucet
* 1.50 GB flooded by data-plane
* 79,785 openflow control messages sent by faucet
* 27,035 openflow control messages received by faucet
And, the contribution to the project thanks to running it at NZNOG:
* Two versions of faucet released (1.6.17 & 1.6.18) for required features
and bug fixes
* 75 commits to git, 667 line additions and 238 line deletions
* 284 lines of faucet configuration (YAML) built as examples for others
* Three new engineers trained in running Faucet in production
* One happy PhD student who now has more data for his research project!
Thanks again to all for making NZNOG '18 such a great conference, looking
forward to next year already!

Our commitment to quality in the services we provide is unchanged - .nz is
important and we aim to maintain the level of service you're used to. All
current products and services continue through the transition, as we merge
IntNZ and NZRS.
Brent Carey is the incoming Domain Name Commissioner - he outlined the
consultation DNCL are running on access to WHOIS via port 43.
The info on that is here: https://dnc.org.nz/port-43

any change to that service, etc, would be brilliant in informing any

We at the National Library are about to begin our 2018 New Zealand domain crawl. As in previous years, the crawl is being run by Internet Archive, and some of you may have already seen the crawlers as IA go through their initial setup with some test crawls.
The user agent string their crawlers will be using is: NLNZ_IAHarvester2018
While we do our best to crawl respectfully, obey robots.txt, and break out of any crawler traps before grinding too much bandwidth, if you encounter any issues from us then please get in contact.

Devoli are putting on some tasty beverages in the bar on level 6 of the
Rydges in the next 10minutes if anyone is keen.
Would be great to see you there!
Does anyone have a useful contact at TVNZ on demand? I have a /21 that they
seem to think is Australian which is making some of my clients a teensy bit

Just a quick update that registrations are a lot higher when compared to
the same date in previous years so its very likely that we'll be selling
out this year. If you are planning on attending book soon!
Also, make sure you have accommodation sorted before you book the
conference - a lot of hotels are also selling out.
