Abstract

There is a lack of knowledge on how ASes have been behaving at African IXPs from 2005 up to now, the period those IXPs have been existing for, their richness in term of reachable ASes or prefixes, etc. To correct this situation, we collected and analyzed PCH data from 2005-2015 which involve 12 African IXPs in Africa, including JINX and KIXP (known to host RouteViews Collector). The analysis of such data reveals some interesting metrics per IXP, namely the time difference between prefix allocation (AFRINIC DB) and appearance on the Internet (RIS data/RIPE stats), the time difference between prefix allocation (AFRINIC DB) and appearance at an IXP (PCH data), the number of prefixes visible at each IXP, Origin ASN and Prefix growth stats per year for each IXP, and etc. We presented the results during this talk.
