Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 8.3.


Configure the routing platform to track IPv6 traffic passing through the router. In other words, this setting must be enabled, prior to the route being created, in order to view the IPv6 transit statistics gathered for a particular route. These statistics can be viewed by running the show interfaces statistics interface-name detail command, or similar.

  • Enabling this option soon after disabling it on a third-generation FPCs (FPC3-PTX-U2 and FPC3-PTX-U3 on PTX5000 and FPC3-SFF-PTX-U0 and FPC3-SFF-PTX-U1 on PTX3000), PTX1000, and PTX10008, restarts the accounting from zero and does not retain the statistics that was previously accounted.

  • On third-generation FPCs in PTX series, egress accounting for IPV6 traffic is not performed for cases where MPLS packets arrives on TCC interface and egress out of the router as IPV6 packets.
