The technical team have not been quiet during the lockdown. After some considerable effort, we now have fully automated updates to the peering DNS records, for both forward and reverse lookup zones, across all IX Australia exchanges.

Peering IP addresses can be queried as, “as10084.nsw.ix.asn.au”, and reverse DNS entries can be queried as “200.52.100.218.in-addr.arpa”.

This also means that traceroutes which traverse an IX Australia peering connection will display the correct AS information.
