Nevil - slides on RTT. Measuered from a single point. Slides via www.caida.org
have added SJC to UCSD. // from Jan2002
-gap in graph=meter was dead
displayed examples and explained meaning of graphs
Q: (DRC) Is it mapping data for C-root?
A: Not from UCSD(?) but there is data from USC (?)
Q: (LT) How long does data go back?
A: about the 7th of January
bill - realtime?
Nev - no, 24hr.
bill - please dont
Joao - correlation w/ path?
Nev - not yet.
Kato - placement?
Nev - SJC is inside an ISP - will remove it when a better site hits.
KJC - (sent MJP slides)
Bill - important to have ICMP? e.g. why does L rate limit it?
(take to list)
Bill - path sensitive?
KJC - not explicitly
Sz - what effect of Load Balancing
LT - active vs Nevils passive
points out that AP uses US/WC, SA uses US/EC, NAfrica uses Euro... :)
like Nevil, wants more sites for measurement.
Bill - how can you tell a caching server is "mis-configured" or
Paul - you can't. Implementation dependent.
Bill - need better documentation on what is a correctly functioning cache.
Paul - an area of active research and documentation.
Jun - useful for the group in gaining emperical evidence for reporting.
Continue to fund? - Sz/Paul/Bill - yes...
DRC - what is the goal of collecting the data?
Jun - rehoming server reports.
2. v6... :)
Kato - report on packet size limits recommend two AAAA. Is there a formal
proceedure on how to modify the zone?
Louie - use the normal proceedure... Documentation might be different.
Jun - we will write an inital request for documentation on how to do this from
BM: Kato has a document that says this is what we can do without effecting bit
DRC: So testing has been done that effects tcp-bits
Kato: Need more testing
Kato - what address space to use? - provider independent is desirable.
can we get small, routable blocks for "critial infrastructure"?
BM: APNIC and ARIN have had these discussions.
Group: we will compile documentation by the end of the month.
Five candidates, M, B, A, F, K....
Johan - a question. The reason we have a problem is the hints file. Because
it is distributed and never changes... :) Can we have a new scheme
e.g. signed packet, temporal efficacy of hints etc?
Paul - No. Too much potential for abuse. Not in a Rush.
Should be done by apr2002 - dropped the ball for Jan2002 rollout.
Report will be circulated to RSSAC. May be used for CRADA.
All servers use AXFR and so are TSIG candidates.
Will start w/ SNS/B --- runs this btwn DM & SNS/A/J
Jun: Each operator has been working directly with icann to finalize mous; very close to signing; but on other hand, mou is not heavy contract; basically describes current situation; not yet looking toward the future.
One thing discussed this morning, that delayed the process, was that the person responsible for signing is not in this room. One action for that direction is to have that person that they understand what has to be done. and Two, to discuss the Stuart proposal. That's another process impacting this action.
MOU is important. Need to develop a suite of mtgs w/ policy makers as well as technocrats. Paul will set up list & est a venue for policy makers to discuss MOU.
5. Global Interest
Desire to get stats measruing tools to perceived underserved areas:
- New Delhi
All agreed to host measuring instruments and be involved in determining how performance is measured, and have impirical data to back up assertions.
Also, APRICOT and Ghana, there is dirth of experience by ccTLD server operators; trying to writeup a BCP and would like to get RSSAC's expertise feedback, especially Centre people would like to work with RSSAC to find out how to run a root server.
Q: (Jun) Good to share, to interact with some part of us (rssac), then if we don't have transparent process b/w us, then its a problem
A: (BM) currently, ccTLDs go with the low cost bidders to run nameservers, and most are not motivated. Encourage people to do better architecture and second each other, get diversity in slaves
Jun: two issues:
Additional educational things wrt dns operators is separate, but good thing
LT: underscore Jun's point; in light of increased focus on scope and mission, it might be that the first and second things should be addressed in a different way.
BM: how so?
LT: not clear that second task is in rssac's mission
bm: perhaps not.
That's it on global interest.
Measurment nodes & correct operations are needed and wanted
We can do some outreach if we want. TLDops want ROOTops to sanity
check their expectations.
Two issues - outreach & training - Jun
What is the scope & mission? - Louie - Should be addressed in different ways. Is the second task part of RSSAC mission?
6. Report Action:
Jun - no report yet. We need to pull it together before next mtg.
Paul has the list:
On the report, Paul will be lead editor. Sz, Liman, Jao, Gerry, Manning, John C., Brad, Matt, Arthur will write stuff & Paul will hammer into coherency!
Bill - timeframes?
Paul - draft cirulation before next mtg.
Jun - End of April2002 would be better.
7. Next mtg. 14july (sunday) Yokohama -
(GMT +9) 3pm = 1am Monday ; do a conference bridge from US?
Ray: Offer that ARIN has conf bridge for ASO AC. Could call internaltional that don't want to call in
That's a thought...
