A Measurement in the context of the RIPE Atlas APIs is an object holding information about one measurement (called a "one-off" measurement) or a series of measurements performed by one or more probes on the RIPE Atlas network. The response of a single measurement performed by a single probe is called a measurement result.

If we look at the information returned in more detail we can discern:

  • Measurement metadata: the ID and the measurement type and information on the selected probes, including whether this is a public measurement.
  • Attributes of the measurement specification, i.e. the attributes that a probe needs to start performing measurements.
  • Status information of the measurement. E.g. Is it running? When was it started?, etc.

The next sections will describe the details of these different types of information.
