Goal is to get a place where we can gather relevant RFCs and drafts, including page numbers, and make graphs of them.
A sample page is live on https://powerdns.org/dns-camel/
How you can help
In various ways:
- The source file [data/dns-rfc-annotations.json] is known to not list all DNS relevant RFCs
- Check if your favorite RFCs are listed in the right categories
We currently have files for BGP, DNS and NTP. Please contribute other protocols!
Updating the graphs
Get a fresh copy of rfc-index.xml, and update the relevant rfc-annotations.json file with any fresh documents you find out about:
curl -Ss https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc-index.xml > ext/rfc-index.xml
Then compile and run "./convert" (requires a modern C++ compiler).
make convert ./convert bgp
Then run "python3 camelplot.py bgp", which will require you to have installed matplotlib, pandas. Some guidance is on [https://ds9a.nl/articles/posts/from-gnuplot-to-matplotlib-pandas/]
You can replace bgp by any protocol you want, as long as you have put the
right source files in the
Notes on installed python requirements
The following is needed by the Python code.
$ pip3 install IPython pandas matplotlib scipy seaborn
Notes on installing Boost
The "convert" program uses "boost" libraries. You do not need to compile them; just have them for including.
On most systems boost can be installed easily from packages (typically libboost-dev or boost-devel). If you have no packages and do not want to compile, download the latest version from Boost Downloads and install similar to the following:
mkdir ~/src ~/src/boost cd ~/src/boost shasum -a256 ~/Downloads/boost_1_70_0.tar.bz2 tar xf ~/Downloads/boost_1_70_0.tar.bz2
The "Makefile" has a commented out -I flag to include this library if not installed in the system directories. Remove the '#' to enable it.
