VIX Web Portal: Features

Peering Traffic

In the web portal, VIX participants have access to a detailed traffic flow analysis. Furthermore, you can view the following statistics:

  • live-view of data amounts between two router ports
  • aggregated ISP-to-ISP graphs
  • Top 5 traffic partner (comparison)
  • analysis of the peering relationship up to a year ago

These services are implemented for bits per second, packets per second, IPv4 and IPv6.

Route Servers

The route servers are a convenient way to establish BGP peerings with other VIX participants without having to make settings for each peer on your own router. In the portal we offer a web interface which allows you to configure peerings with just a few mouse clicks.  Details

Layer2 View

This view shows detailed layer2 information from the VIX switches:

  • VIX connections of the participants
  • AS numbers
  • MAC adresses of all participating routers

We want to help our participants to ease debugging, and provide easy access to data which every participant could also get out of his router configuration. The view is being refreshed every 2 minutes.

Non-IP Traffic and Layer2 Problems

In the portal you can also find a menu item called "IXP Watch". This tool shows which MAC adresses are arping for which hosts (that behaviour usually indicates misconfigured hosts). Furthermore, IXP Watch shows non-IP traffic at the Exchange Point.
