In order to minimize latency for HTTP GET/POST requests, I want to setup a linux box near the server.
Suppose for example the server is https://cdn1.telesco.pe
I’ve tried with
traceroute in theory returns the ip of each hop, and I should be able to
whois on the latter hops.
But in practice
traceroute returns line after line of hidden IPs before quitting:
> traceroute https://cdn1.telesco.pe traceroute to https://cdn1.telesco.pe (188.8.131.52), 64 hops max, 52 byte packets 1 192.168.1.1 (192.168.1.1) 1.128 ms 0.574 ms 0.889 ms : 8 mx-ll-110.164.0-121.static.3bb.co.th (184.108.40.206) 182.163 ms mx-ll-110.164.0-247.static.3bb.co.th (220.127.116.11) 202.120 ms mx-ll-110.164.0-121.static.3bb.co.th (18.104.22.168) 181.422 ms 9 * * * 10 * * * : 63 * * * 64 * * *
And as I understand
whois is hit and miss as:
The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) handles splitting all the IPV4 and IPV6 addresses to 5 different Regional Internet Registries (RIR).
Is there some science to this? Or is it an impossible task?
