To encourage and provide a streamlined way of cooperating I introduce the “NLNOG RING”. In essence the deal is very simple: you make a (virtual) machine available to the RING, and you gain access on all servers which are part of the project, hence the name “RING”.
A great example would be to launch a traceroute from 80 servers in different networks and quickly get the results instead of waiting till somebody has the time to run some tests for you.
Participation is open to everybody who meets the following requirements:
- You are a network operator
- The organisation you work for has BGP routers connected to the “Default Free Zone” and maybe even IXP’s.
- Your organisation has its own ASN, IPv4 and IPv6 prefix(es).
- You have enable or configure rights on those routers.
- You are involved in the networkers community.
- You have permission from your organisation to become involved in the NLNOG RING.
