Better IPv6

Apr 25 2011 Published by under MediaCreeper

Just updated a chunk of code that handled the parsing of IPv6 (6to4) .. where IPv4 are tunneled through IPv6 … and IPv4 addresses are embedded within IPv6 addresses. The chunk of code has been tested against approximately 16000 IPv6 addresses and test patterns.

Possibly we have missed a few hits where a small number of addresses were parsed wrong and dismissed as negative hits. We will keep an eye on the statistics for this and tweak it further if necessary.

CreeperFramework (which is the platform MediaCreeper is built upon) does not yet support IPv6 fully, work is in progress for this and will be supported in the near future. CreeperFramework will be released as open source when code base is mature for a public release.

Old logs

Apr 17 2011 Published by under MediaCreeper

To correct and fill in missing data, I wrote a small shell-script to parse through old logs, some 9Gb of old logs. There is some more work required to massage the parsed data to something useful, so it’ll be online as soon as I’ve had a few more hours to spend on it.

When done, it should be possible to render diagrams of traffic on MediaCreeper from November 16th 2008 to today’s date, on total hits, positive hits and unique IP’s.

The last couple of weeks has been quite busy, so I haven’t had that much time to work on CreeperFramework and MediaCreeper. I have a few new ideas to try, but I’ll put them on hold for the moment.

The end of this month will be the last days on my current job, a new job from the May 2nd which is based in my city, less travel, better salary, more sleep and more time for MediaCreeper.
