I find Perry Lorier's traceroute mesh server (http://tr.meta.net.nz) in
"Grouped by AS" mode (do a "Full Traceroute" first to find the Grouped
by AS option) pretty useful as a general "how do other people reach us?"
tool. I don't think it's exactly what you want, but could possibly be
something to start with?
