Monitoring and Maintenance Tools

Network measurement and monitoring are an integral part of our operations. Our Network Operations Centre (NOC) monitors network analytics from several tools to ensure the Network’s quality and availability. We’re happy to share some of these tools that provide self-help diagnostics and insights about the CANARIE Network’s operation and performance.

Monitoring Tools

CANARIE Routing Registry

A repository of CANARIE Network routing information, populated and used by the CANARIE NOC and NREN network engineers to configure network routing and diagnose routing issues.

CANARIE Router Looking Glass

A web-based tool that displays routing information on our core routers. Use this tool to perform basic troubleshooting of network and routing issues before contacting CANARIE NOC.

Network Maintenance Status

An end-user tool to show a list of scheduled maintenance events in the coming weeks. All changes to network equipment (including hardware and software changes) will be undertaken directly by our NOC team or under its direction. Any changes that affect services will be performed during the service window of 9:00 p.m. ET to 06:00 a.m. ET, whenever possible. Changes that don’t affect services will not be limited to maintenance windows.

Network Outages Status

An end-user tool to report on current outages in the CANARIE Network. Use this tool to see a list of affected services and the latest updates on network incidents.

Near Real-Time Network Traffic Maps

Near real-time network traffic stats of CANARIE’s IPv4 and IPv6 Networks and Content Delivery Service, displaying traffic load over time.
