Internet outage/attack/congestion event log

This dataset contains details about the events detected by the BigBen internet-wide event monitoring system developed at the University of Wisconsin - Madison.    BigBen detects events based on analyzing Network Time Protocol data contributed from NTP server operators.    This dataset    contains events identified in data provided by 16 NTP servers in 7 US locations, during the period of January 2019 to May 2019.    The size of the file is 1GB.    It includes a list of /24 IPv4 networks and /96 IPv6 networks in which events were detected.

The method for detecting events is described in the paper:
