BGP Routing Data


routing topology view from PCH routers

This database contains daily "show ip bgp" snapshots of the routing information base (RIB) from Packet Clearing House peering routers located at Internet Exchange Points around the world. The routing topology captured in each file encompasses route announcements that have been received by PCH from local directly-connected peer ISPs who have agreed to share routing topology data for reseach purposes. The scope of this data set will change constantly, as network conditions vary, local peers grow and evolve, new peers are configured, and new IXP sites are added to the collection.
This dataset is the subject of ongoing measurement and data collection. As such the data is continuously growing. Researchers who are granted access will be able to download updates for a period of one year after their request.
