And here goes first blog post of 2018. Last few months went busy with some major changes in personal life. :) I looked into Amazon’s India connectivity with various ASNs tonight. Here’s how it looks like. (Note: Jump to bottom most to skip traces and look at the summary data). Traceroutes Amazon India to Vodafone India traceroute to 126.96.36.199 (188.8.131.52), 30 hops max, 60 byte packets 1 ec2-52-66-0-128.ap-south-1.compute.amazonaws.com (184.108.40.206) 21.861 ms ec2-52-66-0-134.
It has been some time since I started pushing Indian community for hosting RIPE Atlas Probes. These probes are small devices designed to be hosted at end user’s connection and do pre-defined as well as user-defined measurement. Measurement includes ping, trace, DNS lookup, SSL check etc. Currently, there are 61 active RIPE Atlas probes. I would say it has +/- of 7-8 probes which go offline and come back online when I request hosts to check.
