World IPv6 day: looking for results

Hi all,

as network engineer I'm excited to see results and analisys of the yesterday's World IPv6 Day.

First of all, like a technician does, I looked at the graphs provided by Arbor Networks. Seems that the IPv6 traffic has been increased yesterday, reaching the 0.04% of all internet traffic, according to their measurements points. (Is this data exciting? Need to search more in depth!)

Another source of informations and graphs is the RIPE NCC World IPv6 Day Measurements Page.

The participants have added AAAA DNS entries for their main sites, increasing mainly the NATIVE portion of IPv6 traffic, that's a good thing...

I look forward to see the updated Google IPv6 statistics, just to have an idea of the real impact on a single organization...

Facebook declares the results HERE, but without providing much data or graphs.

I personally hope to see all the participants with permanent AAAA records, but also to see my home ISP start supporting IPv6 ...
