BGP data needed

You can find the feeds we (myself and Nick Feamster) collect at the  
RON testbed at

(the two subdirs - bgpup and bgptables - should be fairly self- 

Note that some of the data we have in there is Abilene routing data.   
While we have a faithful copy of it, it's nothing more than what you  
can get directly from Abilene.  You can find information about what  
the feeds are at

But in general, you'll probably find things like mit_main, *-gblx,  
vineyard, etc. useful, and things like abilene_* less useful.  Also  
-- the "starts" and "ends" time listed in the feeds table are only  
the times we've pushed into the database.  There's more recent stuff  
in the raw data link I listed above.  We also pull down routeviews  
updates, but obviously, you know where to get those already. :)  But  
if we provide a convenient one-stop-shopping place that you find  
useful, then - good!

One catch:  We're still in the process of developing the datapository  
(it's an extension of our previous BGP monitor at MIT), so some  
things may be a bit broken.  We haven't yet imported all of the  
historical BGP data for all of our feeds, for instance.  Also, feel  
free to play around with the query interface, but note that (a) it's  
under development; (b) we're only pushing updates into the db on a  
delayed batch basis right now as we work on things; and (c) be  
gentle. :)


p.s. -- we're still looking for a few more sites that will host  
combination research boxes (that do end to end measurements and act  
as testbed machines for application & protocol development) / BGP  
feed collectors.  Let me know if you (in general, not just Ricardo)  
are interested in hosting one, and I'll send you more information  
about them.
