Monitor, track and understand your connection to our network with our collection of network tools.
The weathermap is a live representation of peak data traffic flows on the network. The data used in the weathermap is the same data that is used in the management and monitoring of the network and is based on a 1 minute average polling cycle.
Detailed traffic information between members can be accessed by hovering over or clicking on a node or link on the map.
The weathermap is maintained by the WAND group at the University of Waikato.
We are deploying perfSONAR infrastructure across the REANNZ Network.
Why? This is proven technology for network performance monitoring, making it easier to solve end-to-end performance problems on paths crossing several networks.
The key to the success of this approach is to have numerous nodes across the REANNZ Network and into our members sites. We are encouraging all our members to install this infrastructure at their sites. To aid this, REANNZ is offering our community pre-installed perfSONAR boxes, ready to be deployed, at a cost effective price. See here for further information.
NOC tools for network operators
The Network Operations Centre service features a suite of open source tools to provide member network operators with more visibility of the network. These tools can help you to troubleshoot and measure network performance. (These tools are only accessible to REANNZ members).
Available tools include:
- Network diagnostic tool
- Router proxy
- Multicast beacon
If you’re new to our network, here are some simple tools you can use to find out whether the network is available to you and where we can take you.
Are You On The Network tester
This is temporarily offline while we upgrade and improve the tester. Check back later, or subscribe to our twitter feed to be notified when we're up and running again.
Otago University's KAREN tester
The Otago University tester will tell you whether the resource you want or person you're trying to reach is available over the network (i.e. on-net)
Please note, this test is performed from the perspective of a user at Otago University and may not always reflect the experience of other users.
AARNet on-net/off-net tool
The AARNet on-net/off-net tool tests whether the resource or person you want to reach is available over the network. AARNet is the Australian equivalent of our network. Please note that this is based on the AARNet view of the research and education destinations, which will not always be aligned with ours.
