YES, it's the SNMP angle! Could the RIPE box use SNMP to measure traffic volumes. That is my motivation. I would like to see the measures of bandwidth volumes directly so we could see exactly how much traffic is moving, but also some correlations with QOS and traffic volumes. Part of the motivation is I would like to see how much of certain circuits is actually filled and how the fill percent is changing. There is some anecdotal evidence to suggest that while there is more bandwidth getting put in place, the fill rates are a bit lower than they have been in the past.
