Dear ipv6-ops,

We are currently looking for volunteers with native IPv6 lines to
help us in our v6 measurement research.

8<--------- Background
We are interested in measuring IPv6 performance from home. As part
of the LEONE project [1], we have developed measurement tests that
compare performance over IPv4 and IPv6 to: a) Dual-stacked websites
and b) YouTube content delivery network (in collaboration with Aalto
University). The tests comes bundled with a LEONE SamKnows probe.

We currently have ~44 Vantage points (VP). Each VP runs a Leone
SamKnows probe. The google map [2] shows where these probes are
deployed. As you can see the VP sample is too small.

We prefer measuring from home networks, but are also open to
deploying probes elsewhere. Here is the current distribution of
probes by network type:

|  TYPE          |  # (PROBES)  |
|  Residential   |  26          |
|  Research/NREN |  8           |
|  Operator Lab  |  4           |
|  IXP           |  1           |
|  Business      |  3           |
|  Data Center   |  2           |
|  Total         |  44          |

8<--------- Request:
If you receive native IPv6 at home (or elsewhere), it would be great
if you can host a LEONE SamKnows probe for us. The probe will run
standard SamKnows tests [3] and our IPv6 tests. All of these are
active measurement tests only.

8<--------- Action:
Let me know if you’re interested, and I can share details on how to
get the probe to you. We only have limited number of LEONE SamKnows
probes. We will process the requests on first come first serve basis.
