The RIPE Atlas active measurement network consists of approximately 10,000 probes, each of which regularly sends queries to the DNS root server system. Through analysis of this data we show how root server system performance has changed, or in some cases remained the same, over the past 7-8 years. In particular we use the data to derive metrics for latency, availability, and levels of interception. Additionally, we also use the data to understand the relationship between a varying subset of Atlas probes and the subset of the root server system that those probes are able to observe.
