This project is meant to provide an observatory of the IPv6 deployment in Canada. It uses various static data as well as an active probing to collect data about reachability and information about the various Canadian organizations and their presence on the IPv6 Internet
Every day a robot fetches, archives, and processes data from the following sources:
The addressing data used in this project is provided by the WHOIS database which binds the IPv6 address ranges to organizations identified in Canada in the database. However, these address ranges may be used outside than Canada. Moreover, if a Canadian organization is not identified in Canada in the WHOIS database, then its data is not taken into account in this project statistics.
The domain data used in this project is provided by the CIRA .ca zonefile. If a Canadian organization does not use a .ca suffix for its domain, then its data is not taken into account in this project statistics.
Every time a significant change is found in the datasets, we take the time to review the raw data, verify it and then identify the reason behind the change. The following explains the significant changes seen:
