Well today is the day to test out the IPv6 network. And I have found a number of tools to help out in that department so lets get started.

First we will start with your browser, be it at home or at work: Test Your Browser
Run the test and see how you fair. This is a fairly quick test all it does is test your IPv4 DNS and your IPv6 DNS; tests with a Dual Stack DNS (IPv4 and IPv6 together), IPv4 without DNS, IPv6 without DNS, and tests if your DNS server uses IPv6.

I had a 10 out of 10 for IPv4 stability when publishers offer both IPv4 and IPv6 but failed miserably when its IPv6 only. Which is basically on par with what is expected. I imagine few out there will see a 10 out of 10 on the IPv6.

If you want something even simpler go to OMG! World IPv6 Day Tester! Green check means go, red means bad lol.

Now the fun stuff.

Dashboards for Great Justice

Ok so that one is a little worn out, but I figured why not. So Dashboards to track the activity:

Linux Cpanel shared hosting: 600 GB disk space, 6 TB bandwidth, free domain, unlimited databases and ftp accounts, web hosting cheap and pro at Hostony

World IPv6 Day official Dashboard: Honestly I think this one is a tad boring. And, for me, takes too much time to get adjusted to (if it takes more than 5 seconds of my time, well there are other dashboards).

DNS MTU Discovery Problem Dashboard: This one is fairly thorough and has a lot of pretty colors as well as the DNS information for participants.

RIPE Network Coordination Center Dashboard: This was my favorite and the one I will use through out the day to monitor the activity. Mainly cause it has graphs and maps and cool colors

RIPE Quick Connectivity Chart: Quick Connectivity Chart, basically this sucker is IPv6 Network lite. Almost unlike the flavor of the original but less filling. Actually this one isn’t too bad really, very quick means of seeing the lay of the land.

Akamai IPv6 Statistics: I have to say this one is sexy. I like the colors, the graph the information given, all around a good one if you want to show off to co-workers, friends, and family.

That’s pretty much it so far. Things are looking pretty decent. I am going to continue monitoring things and will post more if anything major happens.
