IPv6 support

Jump to solution

Where does IPv6 support sit in the ipMonitor roadmap?  Hopefully its sooner rather than later.

I hadn't been too concerned about this previously, but today I attended an industry summit on the topic.  IPv4 address exhaustion is real and probably closer than we think.  The experts in our part of the world estimate our RIR will run out of addresses to allocate around mid next year.  Organisations are well advised to be proactive and begin transitioning towards IPv6 now rather than leaving it until a crisis hits and trying to deal with it then.  This came from none other than Vint Cerf, Google's Chief Internet Evangelist and the father of the internet.

I'm interested to know if ipMonitor will be able to keep pace with us as we transition to IPv6, or will it be relegated to monitoring IPv4 devices only for the foreseeable future?

Thanks - Simon

Hi Chris - this is something we're keeping on the road map for a future release.  We are starting to hear more requests for it, and we'd like to hear if more community members need this functionality as well. 

Thanks,

Correct, it is still on our list of enhancement to add to the product, but adding IPv6 support is not a trivial effort.

Any news on ipv6 support ?

We have some ipv6 only devices we want to monitor.

No new updates on IPv6.  You can get an idea of what we're working on for the next release here.

Nothing we can speak to, but this thread is old enough and long enough that we're taking a closer look at what it would take to get this implemented.

Still on the list of things for the future.  Are ya'll rolling out IPv6 and are you doing pure v6 or dual stack?

We are already using ipv6 (dual stack) for a while but would like to monitor if websites/servers are running ok on ipv6.

Got ya and I am not suggesting that we won't do it, but NPM & SAM currently both support IPv6 if you are looking for another solution in our portfolio.  May be overkill or out of budget for needs, but just an FYI.

This is an active enhancement we have in the system.  Demand drives priority.  So it would be interesting to hear from others, if and when  you are moving to IPv6.  When are ya'll planning to move Simon?

We're still in the planning stage, but we look like we'll do a dual-stack implementation, eg. run IPv4 and IPv6 simultaneously on each device, until IPv4 goes away.  We're just waiting on a software release for our core switch to enable IPv6 routing and then we'll get underway.  Can't give you a date just yet, but I hope it will be fairly soon.

Brandon,

Any updates on a timeline for IPv6 in ipMonitor? We have plans to start enabling IPv6 in our core and a select few buildings this summer.

 

Thanks,

Chris

We're interested in this as well.  US government requires it on everything now - we ended up using a open source solution on a project instead of ipmonitor for that very reason.
