Teredo and 6to4 were still active as IPv6 mechanisms Little in the way of other IPv6 services The second data set has been collected across 2015/2016 Missing comparative IPv4 data for the period September October 2011 - Measuring Failure 2011 - Relative Connection Failure

And why is the V4 relative failure rate dropping over time? What is going on with IPv4? What is going on with IPv4? The failure rate for V4 decreases as the volume of experiments increases which implies that the number of naked SYNs being sent to the servers is not related to the number of tests being performed.

Aside from residual IPv4 failures in the image fetch due to device resets, connection dropouts, etc, the bulk of the recorded failures here is probably attributable to bots doing allof-address scanning on port 80 What is going on with IPv4? Syn attacks? bot scanning on port 80? What about IPv6?

Local Miredo Relay Failures Why is the base failure rate of all IPv6 connections sitting at 40%? This is amazingly bad! V6 Failure Rate by Address Type Teredo All V6 Average 6 to 4 Unicast

6to4 Failure is Local Failure 6to4 failure appears to be related to two factors: 1. The clients site has a protocol 41 firewall filter rule for incoming traffic (this is possibly more prevalent in AsiaPac than in Europe) 2. Load / delay / reliability issues in the servers chosen outbound 6to4 relay (noted in the data gathered at the US server) Even so, the 10% to 20% connection failure

rate for 6to4 is unacceptably high! V6 Unicast Failures January March 2012: 110,761 successful V6 connecting endpoints 6,227 failures Thats a failure rate of 5.3%! 7 clients used fe80:: link local addresses 7 clients used fc00:/7 ULA source addresses 2 clients used fec0::/16 deprecated site local addresses 16 clients used 1f02:d9fc::/16 Nobody used 3ffe::/16 prefixes!

lo s 6 Is V Y Lets dive into SINs! Why SYNs? Every TCP session starts with a SYN handshake

Its typically a kernel level operation, which means that there is little in the way of application level interaction with the SYN exchange On the downside there is only a single sample point per measurement Generating a comparative RTT profile For each successful connection couplet (IPv4 and IPv4) from the

same endpoint, gather the pair of RTT measurements from the SYN-ACK exchanges Use the servers web logs to associate a couplet of IPv4 and IPv6 addresses Use the packet dumps to collect RTT information from the SYN-ACK Exchange Plot the difference in RTT in buckets 2012 Data Number of samples (log scale)

RTT Difference (milliseconds) 6 to 4 Proportion of samples 2015/6 RTT Data CDF IPv6 is faster IPv6 is slower

32% of samples unicast IPv6 is more than 10 msec slower than IPv4 6 to 4 Unicast 13% of samples unicast IPv6 is more than 10 msec faster than IPv4

Zero point is 0.44 RTT Difference (milliseconds) Is IPv6 as good as IPv4? Is IPv6 as good as IPv4? Is IPv6 as fast as IPv4? Basically, yes IPv6 is faster about half of the time For 65% of unicast cases, IPv6 is within 10ms RTT of IPv4

So they perform at much the same rate But thats just for unicast IPv6 The use of 6to4 makes this a whole lot worse! Is IPv6 as good as IPv4? Is IPv6 as robust as IPv4? IPv4 connection reliability currently sits at 0.2% The base failure rate of Unicast V6 connection attempts at 1.8% of the total V6 unicast connections is not brilliant. 6to4 is still terrible!

It could be better. It could be a whole lot better! Is IPv6 as good as IPv4? If you can establish a connection, then IPv4 and IPv6 appear to have comparable RTT measurements across most of the Internet But the odds of establishing that connection are still weighted in favour of IPv4!

Thats it! Q Qu ue essttiio on nss??
