Hi Michel,

it looks likes you have RPKI validation enabled for this prefix in
This will tell BGPmon to run the RPKI validation checks for the prefix
and alert you if there's no valid ROA found.

This bgpmon alert below is from July 20 which was right around the time
the ROA was created, so I'm guessing the ROA hadn't fully propagated or
rsync'd with our systems yet.

Either way the BGPmon systems considers this prefix as RPKI valid now
and it looks like these alerts have stopped for you:

$ whois -h whois.bgpmon.net

Prefix description:  Created by CCI on behalf of TSI Semiconductors
Country code:        US
Origin AS:           14051
Origin AS Name:      Consolidated Communications, Inc.
*RPKI status:         ROA validation successful*
First seen:          2018-04-24
Last seen:           2018-08-01

Little known but handy feature to get all ROA details from the CLI:

$ whois -h whois.bgpmon.net " --roa 14051"

*0 - Valid*
