Prop 313: 7.2. Show IPv6 Relay Counts on Consensus Health
Do you have some time to add some IPv6 relay counts to https://consensus-health.torproject.org/ ?
This change is an optional part of proposal 313, which adds some IPv6 statistics to tor. There's no hurry, any time in the next few months would be great.
Before you make these changes, we need to implement a bunch of IPv6 relay changes in tor, and add an IPv6 Relay subprotocol version to tor in legacy/trac#33226 (moved).
Then consensus health can add an IPv6 section, which counts relays in the consensus that:
- have an IPv6 ORPort, and
- support IPv6 reachability checks.
We'd like to see the number of relays, and the consensus weight fraction.
The definitions of these statistics are in proposal 313, section 3: https://gitweb.torproject.org/torspec.git/tree/proposals/313-relay-ipv6-stats.txt#n82
These changes can be tested using the script in ticket legacy/trac#33262 (moved).
We hope that this change will: * help tor developers improve IPv6 support on the tor network, * help diagnose issues with IPv6 on the tor network, and * drive IPv6 adoption on tor relays.
This consensus health change is described in proposal 313, section 7.2: https://gitweb.torproject.org/torspec.git/tree/proposals/313-relay-ipv6-stats.txt#n236
