2019.24: Publish Machine-readable Micro-allocation List

Suggestion

Author: Anonymous   
Submitted On: 27 December 2019

Description: Publish the ARIN Micro Allocations List in machine-readable formats. Maybe as IRR route-set objects and/or JSON files.

Value to Community: While this information is already published on a website, at https://www.arin.net/reference/research/statistics/microallocations/ the current format likely requires human intervention to make it operationally useful for network automation or inclusion in routing policy. Making the information available as IRR route-set objects and/or JSON files would make this information more operationally useful.

Thank you for your suggestion, numbered 2019.24 upon confirmed receipt, that ARIN a publish machine-readable micro-allocations list.

Currently the micro-allocations list is generated manually by staff, like many of our other published reports and statistics. We currently have a project in our development backlog to look at ways to automate this reporting on the website. Because your suggestion aligns well with that effort, it will remain open for consideration as part of an automated reporting project on our future work plan.
