IPv6 Topology Collection 2007

In March 2005 CAIDA and WIDE coordinated a global collection of IPv6 topology measurement in order to generate a IPv6 AS core map. We would like to repeat this experiment with probe runs between Tuesday 27 November and 4 December 2007. Please help us measure the IPv6 Internet! Instructions below.


The current Internet network layer protocol - Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) - has been strained by the rapid growth of the Internet. Many regions of the world are beginning to use the new IPv6 protocol which supports vastly more directly addressable Internet hosts than IPv4. In partnership with a global array of volunteers, we coordinated a measurement snapshot of the IPv6 topology beginning on 4 March 2005. We used the measurement data to generate this IPv6 AS-level Internet Topology Core map.

CAIDA is now calling for volunteers to participate in a 2007 IPv6 measurement experiment. We would like the measurements to begin anytime between Tuesday November 27th and December 4th, 2007.


Download scamper and the IPv6 destination list provided below.

Compile with (on Linux, Mac OS X) with

      make -f Makefile.gnu 
or (on FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD)

Then run scamper (as root, or setuid root scamper and run as an ordinary user), this will take a few minutes, with:

      scamper -O warts -o <site-name*>.warts ipv6.20071127-1204.list

example: scamper -O warts -o san.caida.warts ipv6.20071127.list
*If the city location of your probe has a three letter airport code, please start with this code. san = San Diego, lax = Los Angeles, etc
