This section lists tools for using PeeringDB, and tools that use PeeringDB.
django-peeringdb is a Django library with a local PeeringDB database sync. It defines the database schema to create a local database copy. The library is easy to integrate into a common framework for local tools and custom interfaces, and also supports multiple database engines (MySQL, Postgres, SQLite).
The Isolario project improve knowledge about the AS-level ecosystem of the Internet by increasing the amount of Autonomous Systems (ASes) from which BGP data is collected. Isolario offers network operators services based on the real-time analysis of inter-domain routing from different points of view in return for full routing tables.
Ixgen is yet another open source, multiplatform peering configuration generator that is based on the PeeringDB API. It can also run its own server for faster results. Ixgen is configured using an INI- or JSON-style format, and produces custom template-driven or fixed JSON-style configurations,
peeringdb-py is a Python client for PeeringDB. It features functions to get objects and display them in JSON or YAML format, and provides a whois-like display of records. The client also has an integrated local database sync, and provides a Python library for integration with custom tools. Some examples are available too.
Pinder is a tool that facilitates peering. If peering is desired between two networks, and you're happy to just configure sessions without a commercial agreement, Pinder acts as the middle man. You can submit the request via either a basic web UI or an API, and the other network is notified or can periodically check their outstanding requests. If both network agree to peer, they are notified to configure a session. Once both networks indicate that sessions are configured and established, the request is then deleted. A brief slide deck explains the functionality in more detail.
TraceMON is a tool for visualizing a network topology generated by traceroutes that provides one-click access to IXP and network information. It also displays PeeringDB information and allows the user to update their record. RIPE Atlas users can access it by selecting a traceroute measurement and clicking on the TraceMON tab.
Source code audit
PeeringDB commissioned a full audit of PeeringDB's source code in 2018. Computest (the auditor) prepared a Third Pary Memo, this memo provides a high level overview of the outcome of the source code audit. The report is available here.
The PeeringDB beta server is running the latest beta software version, with full access over HTTP and the API. Note that changes made to the beta database are local to the beta server only, and are not reflected on the production servers.
The latest changes to PeeringDB automagically redirects to the list of issues on PeeringDB's GitHub repository that document all of the changes in the current beta version.
