Abstract: Recent concern over the impending exhaustion IPv4 allocations has re-energized interest in the status of IPv6 deployment in the Internet. While previous studies have explored rates of IPv6 registry allocations or BGP statistics, little data exists on the overall level of IPv6 traffic.

In this talk, we present the results of a one year study on IPv6 traffic in the Internet from July 2007 to July 2008. In cooperation with the University of Michigan and over 90 Internet providers, we leveraged commercial traffic probes to measure inter-domain IPv6 traffic (both native and tunneled) in the Internet.

Our dataset covered 91 ISPs including one quarter of the tier1 ISPs and a sizable percentage of the regional / PTT providers in North America and EMA. In all, we monitored 2,389 peering and backbone routers, 278,268 customer and peering interfaces and some 5 terabits per second of average daily Internet inter-domain traffic. We report on both the overall level of IPv6 traffic as well as regional differences and one years trends in IPv6 traffic growth.
