AS Peering Analysis Overview

AS Peering Analysis Overview

The Autonomous System Peering Analysis Service is an on-demand generator of reports for individual Autonomous Systems.

The input topology data is the series of panoramic snapshots of BGP routing from around the Internet which is gathered twice a month.  The output is an analysis of the external appearance of an AS, as seen from the different vantage points.

The sections of an AS's analysis are listed below: 
  • transiting peers;
  • direct & indirect downstream customers;
  • routed address space;
  • address space subnetting; and
  • routing inconsistencies.
and an example report for a fictitious network can be reviewed here.
