Link-Rank data server migration
We are migrating our data repository to a server with a larger storage. During this migration, LinkRank data will not be available. We plan to finish the migration by Feb 19, 2010. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Link-Rank 2.0 Beta is now available
LinkRank 2.0 Beta is now available . Major changes include visualizing BGP routing changes from multiple vantage points including RouteViews and RIPE RIS. Currently, LR data for August 2008 / March 2009 ~ current are available, and the client won't be able to visualize date ranges other than those ranges. We are generating data, and in time, the client should be able to visualize all date ranges from August 2008.

Introduction to LinkRank
Background
LinkRank is a tool for visualizing BGP routing changes. This tool can be used by BGP operators to understand routing dynamics as well as by people who want to learn more about BGP. LinkRank summarizes megabytes of BGP updates received from collection points and produces easy to understand graphs indicating the segments of routes affected. LinkRank captures routing dynamics in the form of a Rank-Change graph which shows clearly which AS-AS links have lost routes and which ones have gained routes.

For more information on the LinkRank tool, read the LinkRank Concept page.
 
Current Activity Highlights
Activity plots provide a visual summary of routing changes over a period of time (7 days on this website). Click here for a quick introduction on LinkRank concepts, how activity plots are constructed and what they mean.
