Diffserv statistics

Dave Taht’s Network

In this example - 10% of the ipv4 packets are network radio, ~88% are BE, and less than 2% can be classified into other classes.

This is 24 hours of data, obviously somewhat skewed by the network not being in use half that time…

After I improve performance of the diffserv classifier I will move towards analyzing one of todays typical home network,
over an hourly period.

But for ipv6, the ratios and volume are MUCH different. ~99% of the traffic is control traffic (mostly babel in this case).
While the total amount of traffic may be low compared to ipv4, the amount of traffic relative to the mice category of ipv4
is much higher, in fact, by volume, the ipv6 control packets are the third largest class of packet.
