Welcome to IXP Manager

IXP Manager Logo

This documentation relates to IXP Manager >= v4. For v3, please see the older documentation here.

IXP Manager is a full stack management system for Internet eXchange Points (IXPs) which includes an administration and customer portal; provides end to end provisioning; and both teaches and implements best practice.

INEX are pleased to release IXP Manager under an open source license (the GNU Public License V2) which we hope will benefit the wider IXP community, and especially new and small IXPs looking to expand.

Additional information: http://www.ixpmanager.org/


From v4 onwards, our documentation is now hosted on this site.

For a period, some older v3 documentation may still be useful. You can find that on the wiki.

About IXP Manager

For detailed information, see: https://www.ixpmanager.org/

IXP Manager is primarily a web application with associated scripts and utilities which will allow IXPs to manage new customers, provision new connections / services and monitor traffic usage. It also has a self contained customer portal allowing IXP members to view their IXP traffic statistics and a unique tool called My Peering Manager enabling IXP members to request, manage and track peerings with other members.

INEX is an Internet eXchange Point and Ireland's IP peering hub. It is a neutral, industry-owned Association, founded in 1996, that provides IP peering facilities for its members. INEX membership is open to all organisations that can benefit from peering their IP traffic.
