ANT Outage World Map

About the ANT Outage World Map

The Outage World Map is an interactive website that allows one to browse multiple years of Internet Outage data collected by the Trinocular Internet Outage Detection System.

For technical detail about Trinocular works, see our outage web page, the 2013 Trinocular paper at SIGCOMM, or the DUOI project or ANT Project publications pages.

Data Availability

Want to build on our work? We love to work with and share data with other researchers. See our outage dataset page, our general dataset page, and request details.

Thanks

Our outage detection work has supported by our research sponsors and pinger hosts, with open source code and data. We owe a huge thanks to all of them.

Current supporters:

Current pinger hosts:

And current pinger recipients:

  • nearly all of the IPv4 Internet that is willing to accept our pings

If your particular network is not in our outage system, then either someone has requested to opt-out, or you do not have enough ping-responsive hosts. You can check how many ping-responsive hosts we see by plugging your IPv4 address into the IP address box (in the top right) on our Internet IPv4 Address Browser.

(If your IPv6 address is not in our outage detection system: IPv6 outage detection is an open research problem. We’re working on it, but IPv6 is a lot bigger than IPv4.)

All of our outage data and our Outage Worldmap Browser is Copyright © 2003–2019 by the Unversity of Southern California. (We do share outage data with researchers as described above.) The data is collected in the ANT Lab by Yuri Pradkin, with processing code by Pradkin, Quan, and Heidemann, with the help of our volunteer pinger hosts (listed above).
