Call for data: IPv6 enabled service logfile analysis

APNIC is seeking operators of high-traffic webhosts, and other public  
facing services who can provide logfiles for their IPv6 enabled  
instances. Our intention is to analyse these for the distribution of  
IPv4, and the various sub-classes of IPv6 (native, tunnelled, Teredo,  

APNIC will of course respect client privacy and sign an NDA, only  
abstracted data outcomes would be presented from any participant. -All  
participants would be acknowledged for their support in any  

While our preference is for access to raw logs, there may be people  
out there who cannot share this due to contractual or other  
restrictions. If you are willing to filter data according to our  
example Perlcode, we'd be happy to receive abstracted data if  
neccessary. Our tools assume the apache 'combined' log format, or  
things which can be simply converted to a close analogue.

If anyone is interested in participating in the data collection  
exercise, please contract research at
