The probes Array

This section describes how to select probes to use in measurements based on their location. For our basic case, there's only one request: 50 probes located anywhere in the world.

  • requested: The number of probes you want from the given region.
  • type: The type of request. It can be one of area, country, prefix, asn, probes or msm.
  • value: The lookup used against the given type. This is explained in more detail below, but for our reasons, let's just work with the fact that WW means worldwide.

Based on the above, the API will create a ping measurement hitting the first IPv4 address found at ripe.net, using 50 probes from various points all over the globe.
