Are you the kind of person who wonders…
- What’s the bandwidth distribution among Internet users within a specific country or network?
- How are active users of a specific network geographically spread?
- How are active users spread within a specific IP address block?
It’s your lucky day! It’s now possible to investigate these and similar questions using two new RIPEstat widgets, which provide unique and compelling ways to visualize M-Lab’s data. RIPEstat is a web-based interface developed by the RIPE NCC, featuring visualization widgets and data APIs dedicated to making sense of Internet data. RIPEstat now includes:
- The Observed Network Activity widget, which shows the distribution of actively used IP addresses within a specific country or network, during a user-defined time period. An IP address is considered “active” if it originated an NDT test.
- The Observed Bandwidth Capacity widget, which shows the bandwidth distribution within a specific country or network during a user-defined time period, as measured by NDT.
As a random example, check out the bandwidth distribution in Germany (the top chart) and the distribution of active users within 126.96.36.199/10 (the bottom chart).
These widgets are a great example of the power of open network data, like M-Lab’s.
Want more? Go for it!
- Query the RIPEstat widgets from the RIPEstat web site at https://stat.ripe.net/widget/network-activity and https://stat.ripe.net/widget/bandwidth.
- Embed the RIPEstat widgets in your own web site. (See the instructions.)
- Directly access the M-Lab data, for free - about 800TB and growing! (See instructions.)
