Re: The Cidr Report

  • From: Tony Bates
  • Date: Fri Feb 13 15:52:23 1998

Please note this week's report is not accurate. This is due to an
internal move of my workstation and consequently losing access to the
router I use to get the information from. Normal service should resume in
the next couple of days.

Apologies for the inconvenience casued.

  * It is not checked before it leaves my workstation.  However, hopefully 
  * you will find this report interesting and will take the time to look 
  * through this to see if you can improve the amount of aggregation you 
  * perform.
  * 
  * The report is split into sections:
  * 
  *    0) General Status
  *    
  *       List the route table history for the last week, list any possibly
  *       bogus routes seen and give some status on ASes.
  * 
  *    1) Gains by aggregating at the origin AS level
  * 
  *       This lists the "Top 30" players who if they decided to aggregate
  *       their announced classful prefixes at the origin AS level could 
  *       make a significant difference in the reduction of the current 
  *       size of the Internet routing table. This calculation does not 
  *       take into account the inclusion of holes when forming an aggregate
  *       so it is possible even larger reduction should be possible.
  * 
  *    2) Weekly Delta
  * 
  *       A summary of the last weeks changes in terms of withdrawn and
  *       added routes. Please note that this is only a snapshot but does 
  *       give some indication of ASes participating in CIDR. Clearly,
  *       it is generally a good thing to see a large amont of withdrawls.
  * 
  *    3) Interesting aggregates
  * 
  *       Interesting here means not an aggregate made as a set of 
  *       classful routes.      
  * 
  * Thanks to xara.net for giving me access to their routing tables once a
  * day. 
  * 
  * Please send any comments about this report directly to me.
  * 
  * Check http://www.employees.org/~tbates/cidr-report.html for a daily
  * update of this report.
