ARIN-prop-209 Change Utilization Requirements from last-allocation to total-aggregate

Proposal Originator: Leif Sawyer

Date: 1 May 2014

Problem Statement:

Utilization requirements for new requests is
being calculated on a per allocation basis rather than in
aggregate.
For example, if an organization has 4 x /22 and 3 of them are
utilized 100% and the fourth utilized at 75%, that request would
be denied.
This is a bit out of balance as an organization with a single /20
utilized at 80% would have less efficient utilization but would be
eligible to request additional space.

Policy statement:
Section 4.2.4.1- Change text to read:
"ISPs must have efficiently utilized all previous allocations, in
aggregate, to at least 80% in order to receive additional space.
This includes all space reassigned to their customers. Please note
that until your prior utilization is verified to meet the 80%
requirement, ARIN can neither process nor approve a request for
additional addresses."

Section 4.3.6.1- Change text to read:
"End-users must have efficiently utilized all previous assignments,
in aggregate, to at least 80% in order to receive additional space,
and must provide ARIN with utilization details. The prefix size for
an additional assignment is determined by applying the policies
found in Section 4.3 of the NRPM."

Comments:
a. Timetable for implementation: Immediate, possibly through
board action.
b. Per originator, This does not currently extend into MDN
(aka 4.5.4), and I'm not really sure how to reconcile it against
4.5.5, but OP expressed some concern that there may be undue
restrictions there. It might be better served by a separate
proposal.
c. There should probably also be an attempt to clean up the
language between 4.2.4.1 and 4.3.6.1, as they're both currently
very clunky.
