IPv6 at tronche.com report

I run a few humble web sites, so why not to use them to get a crude idea of IPv6 penetration on the ISPs side ? And here are the results. == How it was done == These are the data aggregated from http://tronche.com/, http://v3.tronche.com/, http://swpat.tronche.com/ and its mobile counterpart http://swpat-m.tronche.com/. You can see that there's a bit below 20 000 unique visitors a month, for about 200 000 hits (downloaded files from the servers, included web pages, images, css, javascript and so on). == What you get == For every month, you get: * The number of distinct IPv4 addresses that was seen on the sites, * The number of distinct IPv6 addresses, * The ratio between the two in percent (so ratio=1 means there are 1 distinct IPv6 address seen for every IPv4 address) * The number of distincts IPv6 networks. The network is obtained from the address using '''whois''' * The number of hits (downloaded files) using IPv4, * The same number using IPv6, * The ratio in % * The top ten IPv6 networks, by counting the hit number * The top ten IPv6 countries, by counting the hit number * The top ten IPv6 countries by number of distinct (as advertised by whois) IPv6 networks * The top ten IPv6 networks by number of distinct IPv6 addresses. == Some results and comments == * China is clearly leading the adoption of IPv6. * I'm not sure about YOUR.ORG and Hurricane Electric. I manually entered 2001:4978::/32 as YOUR.ORG in the network table, rightly or wrongly. If some folks at Hurricane or YOUR.ORG could comment, I'd be happy to correct. * The way of counting doesn't do justice to SixXS. This is because their endpoints appear as rather small networks spreaded through the various countries. If all SixXS traffic was aggregated, they would appear much higher in the various top tens. * Most of the organizations are in research and education, even more so if you look beyond the top ten. Most of the content on my web sites is technically oriented, so it may come as no surprise. However, my usual (IPv4) mix is much more dominated by ISPs. * 6to4 and Teredo tend to disappear over the time. * The ratio of IPv6 hits vs IPv4 hits is higher than the ratio of IPv6 address vs IPv4 address, meaning people with IPv6 spend more time navigating on the file. That might be because they're looking at IPv6 example and they spend more time on IPv6 site when they found one, because there are pages about IPv6 on the sites that are of some interest to them, or for other reasons. * The surge of LDCOM in March 2011 is because I did a backup of my site, and I'm connected through them (SFR) !
