Generating Public Statistics

At present the project requires that participants of the AS112 system must generate and supply a publicly accessible website that displays statistics gathered from the traffic your anycast node attracts. There are several methods to make this work, but so far the one with the least impact on the system is the DNS-OARC's DSC package. DSC has the advantage of being used in a distributed manner and it can also be split functionally into a separate collector and graphing portions.

In one case already, it's been shown that both tools can function on the same system without any ill effect.

On far busier sites, it makes sense to run the collector and XML processor portion on the same system (usually the DNS server) while using a separate system for the presenter.

Sites that present stats should notify the mailing list so that the public listing of AS112 operators can be updated with the proper URL.
