BGP Collector Health Assessment

Various ASes provide their routing (BGP) information to so-called route collectors to, e.g., allow others to debug interdomain routing issues or research the current state of the Internet's interdomain routing ecosystem. In accordance  to Murphy's law, all such BGP session fail from time to time. Similarly, other components may fail, e.g., the route collector itself may temporarily not be able to save the received information. In this project, you will implement a dashboard that graphically shows, e.g., which sessions lost data at which points in time. The project requires you to be fluent in python  and have some experience with web-based applications and data visualisation.

If you are interested, please reach out to Lars.
