BGP Route Withdrawal

Today @Work, I withdrew a prefix from our AS, the video below is the prefix being withdrawn from the Internet as visualised by BGP Play which queries route collectors that send information to RIPE Stat.

I couldn’t help, but add a sneaky sound-clip to the end of the video, as the prefix disappeared from the route collectors, might make it more interesting for those who don’t have knowledge of how BGP allows the Internet to run.

Check here for information on using and interpreting the BGPlay widget.
