Data Publishing

M-Lab publishes its data in two forms:

  • Google Cloud Storage
  • Google BigQuery
    • M-Lab parses data for a subset of its tools and publishes the data on BigQuery so that users can run SQL queries on the data.
    • See M-Lab BigQuery QuickStart for more information.

There is typically at least a 24-hour delay between data collection and data publication.
