Draft Policy ARIN-2014-17 Change Utilization Requirements from
last-allocation to total-aggregate
Date: 19 October 2014
Current ARIN policy calculates utilization on a per allocation basis
rather than in aggregate. This method of determining utilization may
cause some organizations to be unable to qualify for additional address
blocks despite attempting to use their resource allocations as best as
possible. This issue has been exacerbated in the past couple of years
due to the 3-month allocation window which causes organizations to
receive smaller non-expandable allocations rather than a larger aggregate.
For example, if an organization has 4 x /22 and 3 of them are utilized
100% and the fourth utilized at 75%, an additional allocation request
would be denied. However, an organization with a single /20 utilized at
80% would have less efficient utilization but would be eligible to
receive additional space.
Replace Section 22.214.171.124
ISPs must have efficiently utilized all allocations, in aggregate, to at
least 80% and at least 50% of every allocation in order to receive
additional space. This includes all space reassigned to their customers.
Replace Section 126.96.36.199
End-users must have efficiently utilized all assignments, in aggregate,
to at least 80% and at least 50% of every assignment in order to receive
additional space, and must provide ARIN with utilization details.
