#2240 new defect

Preference for inbound IPv6 peers

Reported by: zzz Owned by: zzz
Priority: minor Milestone: undecided
Component: router/transport Version: 0.9.34

Parent Tickets: Sensitive: no


After the changes in 34 to improve things for IPv6-only peers, and IPv6 in general, I'm seeing a larger proportion of v6 connected peers (especially on NTCP) on a v6 router. I'm wondering if we should exempt incoming v6 connections from known v6-only peers, or have other adjustments, to ensure that v6 works well. IPv6-only routers may only connect to about 20% of the peers.

Exempt them from what? The connection limit or something else?

Haven't thought it through. Yeah conn limits, maybe not exempt but exempt from one of the lower limits, so between x and x+5 % only ipv6 inbound is allowed, for example. Another possibility is having idle timeout higher for ipv6. There's a few knobs that can be tweaked.
