Tools to create (and analyze) RIPE Atlas network measurements
For installation, you can use usual Python tools, for instance:
pip3 install blaeu
(On a Debian machine, the prerequitises are packages python3-pip, python3-openssl and python3-cymruwhois. On other systems, pip3 will install the dependencies.)
Usage requires a RIPE Atlas API key (which itself requires a RIPE account), and RIPE Atlas credits. If you don’t have a RIPE account, register first. Once you have an account, create a key, grant it the right to start new measurements, and put the key in ~/.atlas/auth. If you don’t have Atlas credits, host a probe,or become a LIR or ask a friend.
You can then use the four programs (-h will give you a complete list of their options):
- blaeu-reach target-IP-address (test reachability of the target, like ping)
- blaeu-traceroute target-IP-address (like traceroute)
- blaeu-resolve name (use the DNS to resolve the name)
- blaeu-cert name (display the PKIX certificate)
