We're proud to join the OpenINTEL measurement platform.

The goal of OpenINTEL is to capture daily snapshots of the state of large parts of the global Domain Name System. Because the DNS plays a key role in almost all Internet services, recording this information allows OpenINTEL to track changes on the Internet, and thus its evolution, over longer periods of time. By performing active measurements, rather than passively collecting DNS data, the platform builds consistent and reliable time series of the state of the DNS.

OpenINTEL makes extensive use of the tools provided by NLnet Labs, such as the Unbound recursive caching resolver and the LDNS DNS library.
