[dns-operations] 答复: L-Root IPv6 Address renumbering

In my past experience with Internet-scale migrations, you have a few
people who update ASAP, a few people who wait until right before the
deadline, and most people fix things when their systems break (if
ever). I doubt a root renumbering is any different.
The root server system is highly redundant, and we are only talking
about 1 of 11 IPv6 addresses for these servers, or 1 of 24 addresses
overall. I doubt a single resolver would fail to resolve if any of the
root servers turned off its IPv6 today. (Probably true for IPv4 too,
although A is probably still "special" in some setups.)
IMHO the L root can be turned off right away, although I agree that
waiting some time seems reasonable.
I had a quick look at the RSSAC statistics for the 8 of the 12 root
operators that reports them.
Because these are aggregate numbers, we can't know the overlap between
the values reported by each server. That is, every one of the 204139
IPv6 addresses reported for H may also be one of the 204826 IPv6
addresses reported for K... or none of them may be. We have no way to
Still, it is clear that L is the most widely used root server,
reporting almost 4x as many unique IPv6 addresses as the rest of the
servers and (2x as many unique IPv4 addresses as the rest).
Based on that one might think that L is more "important" than other
root servers - at least from the IPv6 point of view. But I don't think
that changes the logic. Nothing will break, so waiting to shutdown the
old address doesn't provide any real benefit, apart from academic
interest. (I admit to looking forward to a presentation about this at a
future DNS OARC meeting!) :)

Is there any evidence or experience to tell the traffic is generated by real resolver or scanning/monitoring system.
