RIPE Atlas IXP Workshop

Goals:

  • Present some ideas about how to put RIPE Atlas and other data to use for IXPs and solicit feedback about whether there is interest in any of the ideas presented and whether people think they are technically feasible
  • Arrive at a tangible outcome that includes future plans to build tools, whether by the RIPE NCC, the IXP community, or a collaboration between the two

Outline:

  • Available datasets that might be interesting for the IXP community (e.g. RIPE Atlas, RIS)
  • Current tools that might be of interest for IXPs, including:
    • IXP Country Jedi
    • Other known tools and prototypes from the community
    • Ideas from the IXP Tools Hackathon taking place at RIPE 73
  • Potential future tools that combine RIPE NCC data (RIPE Atlas, RIS) with other data sources (e.g. flow data from IXPs, flow data from network operators, PeeringDB, etc.) to provide network operators and/or IXPs with intelligence to better interconnect:
    • A tool to assess building out a network to a new data centre/IXP
    • A tool to suggest with which networks to peer
  • Brainstorm other ideas and “wishes”

RIPE NCC staff attending: Emile Aben and Serge Radovcic of the RIPE NCC will be participating in this workshop.

If you are interested in joining please sign up when registering, or contact secretariat@euro-ix.net.
