People are creating new ROAs all the time, so new VRPs appearing in your
output is to be expected. Similarly, you will also find VRPs
disappearing. You say 'significantly different': if you have any numbers
we could compare.

Perhaps you find https://rpki.today useful here: it's a tool we made to
get insights in exactly those (dis)appearings. As you can see, in the last
24 hours, 317 new VRPs appeared under ARIN, 202 under RIPE NCC, etc.

(Note that development of rpki.today is on hold, as we are considering
merging it into JDR. Still, if you have any question about it, do let me

repository servers in your logs, my guess is you are simply seeing the
same differences as listed on rpki.today. Which, again, are perfectly
normal and a sign that adoption of RPKI is increasing.
