Measuring the Internet – An Update on The Life of Kenneth’s Autonomous System

NewImage

From The Life of Kenneth:

Progress on the whole “running my own bit of the Internet” project has been going well. We’ve got a router, and some servers, and even a NAS, so one of the next questions is how well is our network behaving over time?

There are plenty of different ways to ask this question, and plenty of different metrics to look at. For example, to track my bandwidth usage, I’m using LibreNMS, which is a pretty good SNMP front-end to query my router every five minutes to see how many packets I’m moving.

One network monitoring tool that I’ve discovered as part of this project is the RIPE Atlas. It is a world-wide network of measurement probes spread across the Internet, which they use to measure the health of the Internet as a whole, but also allow others to request measurements on it.
