RE: Operational Issues with 22.214.171.124/8...
Well, to increase chance of reachability of blocks immediately after RIRs start making assignments, RIRs should request new assignments from IANA well ahead of exhaustion of currently-held blocks. Possibly, considering that ARIN and RIPE run through 1 /8 a year, a "spare" /8 should be allocated to them (and filter-making folks dropping filtering). Smaller registries (APNIC, LACNIC), under this proposal, would request a /8 when their current /8 is 50% full. This should reduce frequency of required filter updates to once a year or less. -alex On Fri, 6 Dec 2002, Barry Raveendran Greene wrote: > > > IMHO - The RIRs are doing their part.
