To find exactly what space is currently quarantined, you can download the extended statistics file from <ftp://ftp.afrinic.net//stats/afrinic/delegated-afrinic-extended-latest>, search for “reserved” in the seventh pipe-delimited column, and then exclude any space within the following ranges which are reserved by policy:
IPv4 184.108.40.206/16 Reserved for IXPs peering networks per CPM 11.4
IPv4 220.127.116.11/16 Reserved for IXPs management networks per CPM 11.4
IPv4 18.104.22.168/12 Reserved for future use per CPM 5.4.7
ASN 37769-37887 Reserved for use in BGP route servers at IXPs per CPM 11.4
In the case of IPv6, the extended statistics file shows that, for each allocated /48, space is reserved up to the next /44 boundary, and for each allocated /32, space is reserved up to the next /29 boundary. If you are looking for quarantined space, you will also have to ignore these reservations.
