Uh what now? In IPv4 you have the DF don't fragment bit in the IP
header, if set and exceeds a router link, you get an ICMP message back
that says fragmentation needed. Your OS handles all this stuff, your
application requests and gets a "pipe" to push data through transparently.
In IPv6 the IP header does no longer contain that bit. It's always
implied on and if you hit a router where a packet is too big, you'll get
an ICMPv6 packet too big message back. Your OS handles all this stuff,
your application requests and gets a "pipe" to push data through
Whenever you want to meddle with such mechanisms, your OS may or may not
provide socket hints to programatically influence parameters of said
pipe. This is OS dependent and - per sé - has nothing to do with how
well IPv6 runs or does not run as it is absolutely not required.
I've activate IPv6 in my home network in 2011 and have never had any
problem with it, neither slowdowns nor slow loading pages. Or rather, I
do have some slow loading pages, that are all excessivly loading some
flash js and other ad stuff. They do the same thing on v4 only as well
and are just as slow there.
I do run my own caching-only DNS server, but if this is what is causing
"slow page loads", that too is pretty much not v6's problem.
v6 works for the average and even "pro" end user and has been for many
My experience is soma pages ar crawling like a snake .. Some ar not
loading complete at all,
for me v6 is still not ready to deploy to the masses as at least the
mentioned flaw is a show stopper

But still not matured enough to put on public usage
According to Google 10% of their traffic is IPv6.
Apple requires it for IOS.
How is it not 'mature'?
beside of some
design flaw it is in some cases even bad implemented
Need more details.
Maybe the isp/hoster/transit provider ned some teaching how to
do it the
Management of companies need to be convinced. Technical folks
know that they want it, but are not allowed to play with it...
That is not a technical, but a political issue.
