Quantifying TCP Performance for IPv6 in Linux-Based Server Operating Systems

Implementing IPv6 in modern client/server Operating Systems (OS) will have drawbacks of lower throughput as a result of its larger address space. In this paper, the authors quantify TCP performance for IPv6 on two Open Source systems (OSs); namely, the Linux based server operating systems - Red Hat Enterprise Server (RHES) and Ubuntu server. They measure and evaluate the key parameters influencing OS behavior and network performance, including TCP throughput, Round Trip Time (RTT), CPU usage and jitter by observing OS kernel reactions.
