IPv6 traffic monitoring for debian linux
[de] Michael Hock on Wednesday, 30 June 2010 16:24:32
Hi, Is there a tool available which counts the IPv6 traffic on a debian linux server? I have set up IPv6 at my server and added AAAA records a few days ago to every domain. So it would be nice to count the IPv6 traffic to see how many users are able to connect via IPv6. Thanks in advance!

A lot of tools can do this, it just depends on HOW you want to do it, WHERE and of course more importantly what information you want to see. NFSen/nTop come to mind at the minimum, but that is more because I have a Netflow-ish background, there are many many other tools though, just depends on what you like. If you have a tunnel interface, or a separate interface for IPv6 then you can just check the traffic counters of that interface. Otherwise, enable ip6tables on the host with one or more (accept/log/count/skip) rules and you will at least get counters that way. If you want to see more detail, configure more detailed/specific rules and/or install one of the above tools and start using that.

Thank you for your help! I installed ntop yesterday, which has a very detailed webinterface. I restarted ntop this morning and until now 6.1 MBytes IPv6 Traffic and 29.7 GBytes IPv4 Traffic got transferred. Let's see how this changes in near future.
