In light of the particularities of Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) and based on the principles of network bandwidth measurement, an available bandwidth measuring algorithm is proposed with the characteristics of IPv6 being protocol-based, end-to-end, one-way, relative time delay, different-length packet pairs and subtraction model. With the application of the flow label of IPv6 message headers, the proposed algorithm has realized the path control of the measured message sequence and established its prototype system by programming.
