Its still a work in progress, I am updating it daily and soon will make a release. Until then, please bear with me :)
How it works
- It gets the advertised prefixes for an AS from http://ipinfo.io/
- Randomly get some ip addresses from each advertised prefixes.
- ssh into each of the given host and run traceroute to those ip addresses in the background.
- Once finished, you can calculate the results using
- Calculates all unique ip addresses from the traceroute ip path.
- Finds the ip which belongs to the AS and calculate number of Edge and Core routers.
- Nodes directory: This directory must contain all the hosts from which you want to run traceroute. I recommend using Planet Lab
- Private Key: A private key to ssh into those hosts.
- Username: Username of the account on the hosts.
cd ./RocketFuelPython python setup.py install
To start traceroute to an AS. A private key is required to ssh into hosts which will run the traceroute. (You don't want to run traceroute from you own machine, or do you? ;)
rocketfuel start <as-number> --key <private-key> --user <username>
You can check the status of the background processes by running
To analyse the traceroute results
rocketfuel analyse <AS number>
