- Traffic may only be forwarded towards a member if permission is given by the member
If a member shows a willful disregard for the IX service rules they will be disconnected from the service.
- Only unicast frames with defined source MAC-address are allowed, with the exception of neighbor discovery mechanisms
- For all traffic, the following rules apply:
- Frame sizes upto (MTU) 9000 is allowed
- Only Ethernet frame types IPv4 (0x0800), IPv6 (0x86dd) and ARP (0x0806) are allowed
- For intra-IX traffic, the following rules apply in addition to the above:
- Traffic destined to the IX subnet must be sourced from the IX subnet
- The following ICMP and ICMPv6 packets are forbidden:
- ICMP Redirect Message (Type 5)
- ICMPv6 Router Solicitation (Type 133)

- Only one MAC-address is allowed per link and is assigned by member
- Only one IPv4-address and IPv6-address is allowed per link and is assigned by SONIX
 Intra-IX is defined as traffic sourced from or destined to the IX network subnet.
- SONIX implements data inspection in order to calculate statistics of how the IX is
- Non-aggregated data is purged after maximum 90 days. Note: SONIX aims to purge such data within 14 days.
- SONIX will provide access to data collected from a member port to that member if requested.
- SONIX publishes all time series data collected and computed publicly on metric.sonix.network
- Anyone is free to use the public Prometheus API to query these time series and retain them for as long as they want.
- The member’s AS name and number will be exported as part of these metrics.
- SONIX may retain time series data indefinitely.
