The official command line client for RIPE Atlas
RIPE Atlas Tools (Magellan)
The official command-line client for RIPE Atlas.
Everything is up on ReadTheDocs
How Does it Work?
Presently, the setup is pretty crude. You can create a ping or traceroute measurement with limited options from the command line:
$ ripe-atlas measure ping --target example.com $ ripe-atlas measure ping --packets 7 --size 42 --target example.com $ ripe-atlas measure traceroute --target example.com $ ripe-atlas measure traceroute --packets 2 --target example.com $ ripe-atlas measure dns --query-argument example.com $ ripe-atlas measure dns --use-probe-resolver --query-type AAAA --query-argument example.com
This will create a one-off measurement and then wait for the results to roll in, formatting them as they do.
You can also use it to connect to a stream of formatted data. This command will start streaming out all of the results from one of our oldest measurements:
$ ripe-atlas stream 1001
Or you can generate a simple report:
$ ripe-atlas report 1001
Configuration is done by way of a config file, and modifying it can be done from the command line:
$ ripe-atlas configure --set authorisation.create=MY_API_KEY
Can I Contribute?
Absolutely. Please read our guide on how to contribute.
This project was code-named by means of a poll. In order to conform to the RIPE Atlas theme, it had to be named for an explorer, and so the winning suggestion was for Magellan, “in memory of those times when RTT was ~3 years”.
