Internet Growth: Raw Data
The following data is from Network Wizards.
The columns in the following chart are:
The raw data from Network Wizards follows:
- This is the number of machine addresses on the net as reported by
the nameservers. Many of these addresses may not have a machine which
responds to them. See the "Replied to Ping" column.
- These are domains such as "mit.edu" or "internic.net". Each
domain is usually associated with some organization, be it a
university, company or other group.
- Replied to Ping
- This is an estimated number of machines that are actually
connected to the net and responding. This estimate was made by
pinging 1% of the hosts and counting repsonses. 'Ping' is a tool to
determine if a machine is up.
