Skitter data using Hypviewer: Internet Atlas Gallery

skitter Data Using hypviewer Cooperative Association for Internet Data Analysis (CAIDA) San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) University of California, San Diego (UCSD) This image shows that many paths from our skitter source monitor (riesling.caida.org) traverse 204.70.1.197. The source is not visible, but is in one of the clouds to the left of the sphere. Note the high outdegree of 204.70.1.197: it has many next hops. There are also a number of large networks behind this router, as seen by the clusters of nodes and links visible behind the fanout on the right side of the sphere.

NSFNET: Internet Atlas Gallery

NSFNET growth until 1995 Donna Cox and Robert Patterson The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), National Science Foundation's Supercomputer Centers Program University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign URL: http://www.ncsa.illinois.edu NSFNET was a series of networks coordinated by NFS, created to serve research and education purposes. Based on ARPANET protocols, NFSNET served as the backbone of a growing internet up until April 1995. The role of the backbone has since been handed over to several commercial carriers, dissolving the notion of a single national Internet backbone.

Layout Showing the Major ISPs: Internet Atlas Gallery

Layout Showing the Major ISPs Bill Cheswick, Bell Labs and Hal Burch, CMU Lucent Technologies Bell Labs Innovations Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) Computer Science Dept. URL: https://www.bell-labs.com/about/history/#gref Frequent traceroute-style path probes are used to build a tree showing the paths to most of the nets on the Internet. Once the layout is computed, the map can be colored to show geographical clues, network capacity, or IP addresses. In this example, color distinguishes different ISPs.

Core AS Internet Cooperative Assocation for Data Analysis (CAIDA) San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) University of California, San Diego (UCSD) URL: https://www.caida.org/projects/cartography/as-core/ This graph combines dimensions showing peering richness and geographic information, revealing the highly 'core-connected' nature of Autonomous Systems (ASes). Polar angles represent the longitude of the AS headquarters, enabling consideration of continental implications of AS richness. Visualization Thumbnail Analysis Data
