Dear All,

Is it possible/or an easy way to distinguish the users' using the IPv4 or IPv6?

Regards,

@Babar_Qayyum,

I have copied the image below from a Request Attribute associated with client IP address. The IPv6 addresses are longer, so clearly distinguishable. In other parts of Dynatrace, namely sessions, it's the same.

Hello @AntonioSousa 

I am using the "Client IP address" attribute for the eChannel applications where the DEM is not enabled. How did you get the above chart?

Regards,

Babar

@Babar_Qayyum,

If you have a request attribute set up, in the service details, select the "Request Attributes" tab, and expand the "Client IP address" attribute:

IPv4 IS generally numeric value with 32bit length, IPv6 is generally alphanumeric value with 128 bit length, we can use content validations

Hi @Babar_Qayyum there is no direct way to do it. But you could use "SELECT TOP (DISTINCT ip,500) FROM usersession GROUP BY ip ORDER BY ip DESC" and the IPv6 numbers are bigger so you can see them on top.

The true delight is in the finding out rather than in the knowing.

Hello @DanielS 

Thank you for sharing the query.
