Due to some exams at uni my thesis has been on low priority recently. Since last Thursday however these exams belong to the past and my thesis is humming along once more.

Right now I’m focusing on several aspects such as the rendering (note how the lines between nodes have been replaced by textured quads), user interface (descriptions are displayed for selected AS). Once I have improved the still rudimentary 3D navigation I will try to get the whole graph to render at once using an improved layout and a clustering algorithm.

Other interesting sub-projects are accessing the UPDATE messages from bgp-mon in realtime and integrating further information such as the as_rel dataset from CAIDA.

Stay tuned for more screenshots soon!
