Unfortunately Perry is shortly leaving us and NZ so it would be best if
you dealt with me regarding AMP. I'm replying on list just in case
anyone else is vaguely interested.
We use a standardised hardware platform for AMP monitors. They are
supermicro 1U rackmount servers running debian linux. The AMP project
is not currently funded and so we ask if potential hosts are able to pay
the purchase cost of a machine.
We require a static IP address (preferably v6 as well as v4) and a
single ethernet connection (preferably gigabit - for MTU and latency
reasons, not bandwidth). The connection is best if it is not behind
any firewall, or at least a minimally intrusive firewall. The basic
information we require is that in the form at
Last time we measured, most AMP monitors were had combined in and out
traffic of between 15 and 25 MB per day although this will have gone up
a little with an increase in the number of deployed monitors and the DNS
testing. Apart from some of the DNS queries all the traffic should be
to NZ destinations. The destinations are those listed on the AMP
website - other AMP monitors, DNS servers, some high profile NZ websites
and the management system here at Waikato.
We manage and secure the machines from Waikato. Logins for local hosts
If there is anything else you need to know, just ask.

What is involved and required to host an AMP node?
If you could send me the details I can see what we can do on our end to locate on in a
suitable part of the network.
