ACSP Suggestion 2012.7: Free Pool Netblock Distribution Statistics


Author: Mike Joseph   
Submitted On: 24 April 2012

Description: As discussed at ARIN XXIX, please begin regular publication (on the ARIN website) of the distribution of netblock sizes within the remaining ARIN free pool. For example, the number of remaining contiguous /8’s, /9’s, /10’s, etc. While real-time updates based on issued space would be ideal, a static page updated at least weekly would be sufficient.

Timeframe: Immediate

Status: Closed   Updated: 07 June 2012

ARIN will begin publishing the total available IPv4 address blocks by prefix size in the existing daily counter. The software already exists, but will need some adjustments in order to make this data publicly available. We should be able to get this done and published within the next thirty days.

We will close this suggestion when the information has been added to the counter page.

We have now added the block size distribution of remaining IPv4 inventory to the information page behind the IPv4 Counter,

Suggestion 2012.7 is now closed.
