Draft Policy ARIN-2014-17
Change Utilization Requirements from last-allocation to total-aggregate
Date: 16 May 2014
Utilization requirements for new requests is being calculated on a per
allocation basis rather than in aggregate. For example, if an
organization has 4 x /22 and 3 of them are utilized 100% and the fourth
utilized at 75%, that request would be denied. This is a bit out of
balance as an organization with a single /20 utilized at 80% would have
less efficient utilization but would be eligible to request additional
Section 18.104.22.168- Change text to read: "ISPs must have efficiently
utilized all previous allocations, in aggregate, to at least 80% in
order to receive additional space. This includes all space reassigned to
their customers. Please note that until your prior utilization is
verified to meet the 80% requirement, ARIN can neither process nor
approve a request for additional addresses."
Section 22.214.171.124- Change text to read: "End-users must have efficiently
utilized all previous assignments, in aggregate, to at least 80% in
order to receive additional space, and must provide ARIN with
utilization details. The prefix size for an additional assignment is
determined by applying the policies found in Section 4.3 of the NRPM."
a. Timetable for implementation: Immediate, possibly through board action.
b. Per originator, This does not currently extend into MDN (aka 4.5.4),
and I'm not really sure how to reconcile it against 4.5.5, but OP
expressed some concern that there may be undue restrictions there. It
might be better served by a separate proposal.
c. There should probably also be an attempt to clean up the language
between 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52, as they're both currently very clunky.
