User Story

As PRTG user and ISP we desire to measure the growth in IPv6 and for this we need to monitor IPv6 separately from IPv4 but on the same graph.

Details of User Story

We are using Netflow v9, IPv4 and IPv6 traffic are using the same subinterface. We are looking for a way to implement this with a PRTG feature:

Implement a new traffic sensor that allows to selectively display both ipv4 and ipv6 traffic on the same graph. Actually this is the desired solution.

Acceptance criteria

A Sensor that alles to discern amounts of traffic for IPv4 and IPv6, based on the NetFlow protocol.
