The Routing Report first saw light of day on the 23rd February 1999. The Internet was seeing explosive commercial growth then, and no one was paying any attention to what was happening on it. There were no published reports, and the CIDR Report was then used as a marketing tool by ISPs wishing to show off how "big" they were.

With the encouragement of APNIC and other colleagues in the industry, I started producing the daily Routing Report, taking a more detailed look at the state of the Internet Routing Table on a per-Regional Internet Registry Basis. A detailed explanation of the daily routing report is now available.

Note: An equivalent report, analysing data for the Global Research and Education Networks from 30 sources around the world, is operated by the Network Startup Resource Center sponsored by the International Research Network Connections (IRNC) program in the National Science Foundation's Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (OAC) via NSF grant award #2029309.

Data Sources and Analysis Results

Analysis is carred out on the BGP data obtained from the APNIC router at DIX-IE (formerly NSP-IXP2). Since the project started, analysis of several other BGP feeds were started (some retired, some still running).

Current Data

Current data for the global Internet are available below. The daily data are updated between 4am and 9am +10GMT.

DIX-IE (Japan) data Brisbane data
Singapore (Equinix) data HKIX (Hong Kong) data

Some combined results from the above feeds are gradually becoming available as (my) time allows.

Data for the Research & Education routing table are also available, in a project under way for the Network Startup Resource Center, and can be found at


The current RPKI data obtained from a validator cache operated by NSRC is provided here for reference. Note that NSRC's validator uses TALs from AfriNIC, APNIC, ARIN, LACNIC, and RIPE NCC, as well as APNIC's and LACNIC's AS0 TAL.

Mailing Lists

There are two mailing lists available for anyone interested in seeing the reports produced from the various data described on this site. Each can be subscribed to via the following links:

I would like to acknowledge and thank APNIC for kindly agreeing to host this website, for providing this system to process and store the data, and for access to their routers to get the BGP table.
