A solid start for IPV6 accessile storage within the UK for WLCG expeiments.

IPV6 accessible storage is becoming a reality in production at WLCG sites within the UK.
We already have some sites which are fully dual IPV4/6. Some sites have full storage systems are dual hosted. others have partial sections of their storage systems  dual hosted as part of a staged rollout of service . I am also aware of sites whoa actively looking at providing dual hosted gateways to their storage systems.  Now just to work out how to monitor and differentiate network rates between IPV4 and IPV6 traffic. (This is using a very liberal usage of the word "just" since I understand that there is a complicated set of issues for further IPV6 deployment and its monitoring.)
