A simple IPv6 ping test. Perform an IPv6 ping simultaneously from 14 locations.
The IPv6 Ping test is very similiar to our Ping Test tool but in this case it allows you to ping an IPv6 host or IP simultaneously from different locations. Ping is important when it comes to website latency. The tool sends out ICMP packets to an address to see how fast the response is. A faster ping means a more responsive connection.
Example of an IPv6 address (www.google.com):
Just use the command
ping6 tools.keycdn.com. It might is required to specify the interface with the argument
-I eth0 (replace eth0 with the appropriate interface).
IPV6 is the latest internet protocol designed to replace IPv4 due to the network shortage of addresses. IPv6 addresses are 128 bits (16 bytes) long, as opposed to 32 bits, and use AAAA resource records in DNS to map host names to IPs. They also require IPSec support.
