Some Measurements on World IPv6 Day from an End-User Perspective
Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: "Nevil Brownlee" <email@example.com> Cc: The IESG <firstname.lastname@example.org>, <email@example.com>, <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Results of IETF-conflict review for <draft-keranen-ipv6day-measurements-03.txt> The IESG has completed a review of <draft-keranen-ipv6day-measurements> consistent with RFC5742. This review is applied to all non-IETF streams. The IESG has no problem with the publication of 'Some Measurements on World IPv6 Day from End-User Perspective' <draft-keranen-ipv6day-measurements-03.txt> as an Informational RFC. The IESG would also like the RFC-Editor to review the comments in the datatracker (http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-keranen-ipv6day-measurements/) related to this document and determine whether or not they merit incorporation into the document. Comments may exist in both the ballot and the history log. A URL of this Internet Draft is: http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-keranen-ipv6day-measurements/ The process for such documents is described at http://www.rfc-editor.org/indsubs.html Thank you, The IESG Secretary
Technical Summary During the World IPv6 Day on June 8th, 2011, several key content providers enabled their networks to offer both IPv4 and IPv6 services. Hundreds of organizations participated in this effort, and in the months and weeks leading up to the event worked hard on preparing their networks to support this event. The event was largely unnoticed by the general public, which is a good thing since it means that no major problems were detected. For the Internet, however, there was a major change on such a small timescale. This memo discusses measurements that the authors made from the perspective of an end-user with good IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity. Our measurements include the number of most popular networks providing AAAA records for their service as well as delay and connection failure statistics. Working Group Summary This document is an ISE submission. From the ISE: Bob Hinden reviewed it for me, he noted: "This draft has four informative references with links to graphs that may not be stable enough for an RFC. The ISE and authors should consider finding a better repository for these as they are important for the document as we can't include them directly in the ASCII version of the document. They should also be shown as normative references as they are essentially part of the document." It might also be useful to publish a companion pdf version of this document with the graphs included in the document. These are RFC Production issues - however they've agreed that publishing a (non-normative) .pdf version will be OK, and the authors have agreed to help with that. Document Quality See the IESG note for suggested RFC 5742 text. Brian Haberman reviewed the document according to RFC 5742 and recommends responding that the IESG has no problem with the publication of 'Some Measurements on World IPv6 Day from End-User Perspective' <draft-keranen-ipv6day-measurements-03> as an Informational RFC. Personnel Brian Haberman <email@example.com> is the responsible AD. IESG Note The IESG has concluded that there is no conflict between this document and IETF work.
