The expanded data includes the AS of each router that is encountered, plus annotations about whether the route taken by traceroute is the primary, secondary, etc. route according to policy registered in the Routing Registry. prtraceroute has been running for a long time using RIPE data; I believe a new version is due out soon. Tony Bates can elaborate on this, I think. --Dale Johnson - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
