Is there any way to conduct IPv6 DNS resolution performance via some sort of bench marking process? With IPv4 there has been a couple of different tools such as GRC namebench and Google namebench but neither of them, nor any other tool I can find seems to be able to do anything similar to them. Has anyone found a tool or developed a process to test IPv6 DNS resolution performance with various DNS servers?

  • It's not exactly clear what kind of benchmark you're thinking of, particularly since you mention Google namebench, which already has a flag that tells it to only operate over IPv6. – Calle Dybedahl Apr 4 '16 at 8:52
  • I appologise, I am not sure how to make my statement any more clear. I am trying to perform the same benchmark for IPv6 DNS servers as the the applications listed in my post do for IPv4 DNS servers. I also do not see in the application or via google search an option to enable IPv6 benchmark with Googles namebench application. – Nick W. Apr 4 '16 at 10:11
  • @user1451070 What problems do you experience when you tell namebench to query an IPv6 address? If that is not what you meant, please clarify. – Håkan Lindqvist Apr 11 '16 at 21:53
  • Namebench doesn't seem to have the capability to do ipv6 addresses. – Nick W. Apr 11 '16 at 21:55
  • @user1451070 It seemed to work just fine when I tried it right now – Håkan Lindqvist Apr 11 '16 at 21:58
