I have a (foreign) server in the Brazil pool, only available over IPv6, with the net speed set to 768 Kbps.
(It dates to the call for Brazil volunteers from 1 or 2 years ago. I removed my IPv4 IP 'cause i couldn’t handle the traffic, but kept the IPv6 one at a low net speed.)
Today, starting around 15:00 UTC, the system’s incoming IPv6 traffic level suddenly spiked from a couple hundred Kbps to around 5 Mbps.
At a glance, the traffic appears legitimate. There’s just a lot of it.
Is it just me? How’s IPv4? How much traffic is going to servers with high net speed settings!?
It’s a US server. Speed settings are:
US IPv4: 500 Mbit
US IPv6: 1000 Mbit
BR IPv4: (removed a year ago)
BR IPv6: 768 Kbit
Over a 1 minute period a little bit ago, it received:
US IPv4: 106,000 queries
US IPv6: 21,000
BR IPv4: 200
BR IPv6: 313,000
Maybe it’s due to today’s IPv6 monitoring issues. The Brazil pool only lost 3 out of 7 servers, but maybe they were high speed.
