Funding
Currently, LinkRank is supported by the DARPA NetPath project and NSF Beyond BGP project. Early designs for the LinkRank toolset started in 2002-2003 as part of the DARPA funded FNIISC project. Analyzing global routing dynamics and diagnosing faults requires tools which can translate multiple gigabytes of BGP logs to comprehensive routing change measures. The basic LinkRank metrics were a first step in this direction. A more comprehensive LinkRank development effort continued under the NSF Beyond BGP which aims to understand the fundamental properties and limitations of the BGP routing infrastructure. The recently funded DARPA NetPath project strives to improve the BGP monitoring infrastructure provided by RouteViews and provide tools such as LinkRank for analyzing the data.
