       asused - summaries  address  space used and   according to  the RIPE DB and REG.

       asused [--all] [--aw | [--approval]  [--overlap]  [--status | --assign [--pipa] ] [--regid
       regid] (prefix ...)

       asused  [--<options>]  regid | prefix


       asused is a tool to summaries  address space is  registered  in the RIPE database.  For
       each allocated inetnum object a summary of  used and free address space   is printed.  A
       grant total summary for all prefixes is also provided. If there are no errors in locating
       allocations and and assignments under an allocation. In in the total % are calculated on
       total allocations.


       regid is name of registry as in registry database.

       prefix  is allocation as in whois  database. e.g. a.b.c/16 . Prefix  is queried  whois DB
       to  find all Less specific matches   inetnum with na as netname is interpreted as
       allocation  and summerize the allocation.


       --assign print all assignments under allocations, size, date  and net name .  Summary of
       assignments. And free address space. Summary of status attribute.
       --all this same as three options  --overlap --status --aw.
       --approval  Check the all networks in allocations  are  valid or not. Print valid and
       invalid networks. --aw only print invalid networks.
       --aw Check the all networks in allocations  are  valid or not. Print only Invalid
       networks. --approval will print valid and invalid.
       --contacts   print admin-c/tech-c for all inetnums
       --help  Shows the usage of asused.
       --overlap print the details of overlapping assignments. Summary of overlap per assignment
       is printed at the end.
       --reg regid. regid to locate  the allocation. Netname of allocation is same as regid,
       translating the first   '.' to '-' IN upper case. If not specified uses i2r to get regid.
       --status show assignments under allocations with wrong status attribute other than
       ASSIGNED PA or PI.  MISSING for missing status. size and net name.  Summary of
       assignments.  No of Assignment(s) ,  No Assignments with status ASSIGNED PA or ASSIGNED
       PI,   No Assignments with status ASSIGNED PI,No Assignments, No Assignments with Missing
       status attribute,No Assignments with other values status attribute, none of other .
       Warnings on assignments.


           --port port  query another whois server on the port. Default is 43.
           --host whoishost query another whois server. Default is Can query only
           to RIPE whois server. Server version tested '2.1'
           --na netname show event table for approval of netname. Used with --aw or --approval
           -pipa additional flag to the --assign option to print allocation status in output. PA
           is for ALLOCATED PA, PI - ALLOCATED PI, UN for UNSPECIFED, -- is for missed status
           --version print version of asused.


       No allocations from reg Could  not locate any allocations in use from registry.
       No allocations from DB No inetnum object was recognized as allocation in the RIPE
        % No entries found for the selected source(s). No assignment(s)  found  under the
       allocation. May be a new allocation or allocation which has no objects in RIPE DB. Not
       sure to treat as 100 % free.
       ERROR MISMATCH Netname regid RIPE DB  Netame attribute  has mismatch with na or regid.
       ERROR STATUS May be incorrect  status attribute in the RIPE DB, Valid status ALLOCATED
       ERROR mnt-byInvalid <mnt-by> attribute in RIPE DB  expecting
       Inconsistent with inetnum Encountered two inetnum  objects with same logical start and
       end. Logical interpretation of inetnum  a.b.c.0 =>  a.b.c.0 - a.b.c.255; a.b.c.0 - a.b.d.0
       =>  a.b.c.0 - a.b.d.255
       Classfull notation Intrepreted as class full object.  Check if no of address are counted
       Multiple inetnum When tried to locate an allocation inetnum object for regid prefix  from
       RIPE DB with option -L -F -T prefix returned multiple objects. Every prefix can have only
       one allocation object.
       NOT Counted  Assignment If the assignment is outside the boundaries of allocation. It was
       returned by -M query RIPE whois server.
       Invalid inetnum Logical interpretation of inetnum fails.  Probably  can not  identify
       start,  end of end < start.
       Assignments has Invalid Date one of the dates of inetnum in the changed attribute is


       Perl 5.00404 or later.   Connection to RIPE  whois server V 2.1, Perl Modules  Socket
       Getopt::Long, regread, ipv4pack


       Could give incorrect summary if logical interpretation of Inetnum is not exact  a.b.c.0 -
       a.b.c.0 is intended to be an assignment of size 1 IP No.

       Out of memory! Noticed that when  the no of assignments are very large, like 5000+ per
       allocation default data segment  size of BSDI 3.1 is not enough.  Increasing to 64 M Bytes
       may help.  in bash shell ulimit -d 65536 eg. de.schlund

       IANA Delegated  blocks smaller than /8 If the allocations are outside 192,193,194,195,212
       /8 and LIR allocation is same inetnum as in /ncc/ip-reg/delegations asused2 will return No
       allocations in RIPE DB. eg. de.callisto
