Understanding the Performance of the Linux IPv6 Implementation

Abstract [en]

The new version of the Internet protocol, IP version 6, will eventually replace the current version IP version 4. Before that change can take place the different implementations of IPv6 must be able to perform at least as well as their predecessors, The implementation that is considered here is that of the Linux operating system. All measurements considers native IPv6, e.g. no tunneling in IPv4 packets.

A small network of two computers was set up on which the performance tests were performed. Throughput and response times were measured on both Ethernet and Fast Ethernet. The conclusions are that IPv6 performs almost as well as IPv4 in both cases. IPv4's slight advantage is due to the fact that it has less overhead on the network since the header is smaller.

Later a connection to the 6bone is setup. It is run on an ATM network. The performance across that network is also tested.
