This website is dedicated to the analysis of OttIX's operations, from tracking
BGP routes over the long term to the more mundane tracking of interface
counters. This page contains pointers to other monitoring tools that the
OttIX community will find useful. Much of this information is also used
in various research aspects, such as the stability of routing tables and
multicast session discovery.
- OttIX router proxy gateway
which allows one to execute router commands from remote as well as act as a
- A look at OttIX's BGP routing table over time
using a tool courtesy of Geoff Huston, with a patch contributed by stany.
There's also a view of the Multicast BGP
table at OttIX. Normally these tools would be used to generate projections
(among other things) of the global BGP routing table, but in our case, gives
a nice historical picture of growth at OttIX.
- IPv4 Multicast Beacon.
- IPv6 Multicast Beacon via M6Bone RP.
- A dynamic listing showing BGP routes of
everyone that OttIX can reach.
- NetFlow analysis of OttIX
border router traffic
- Raw SNMP reports for each device.
- Current OttIX Weather and
latest 24-hour Movie.

of multicast session announcements relating to media streams available at the
There are number of tools available at the IX that folks can try out for
testing purposes. Many of these tools have their origins in the research
network world, where concerns related to large bandwidths in WANs could
make all the difference to an application. Many of these tools are also
useful for trouble-shooting return-trip times and such. All tools are
written with a client-server model in mind, where you as the user run the
client version against a remote server version. Here are a
few that OttIX supports:
One of the original tools developed for throughput testing. Port 5001:
TCP. Port 5002: UDP. Port 5003: IPv6 TCP.
- nuttcp and
nuttcp was developed by the US Navy as part of their answer to Iperf.
Port 5004: TCP. Port 5005: data.
