Anycast is a network service provided in IPv6. A group of servers that provide same services will be assigned the same anycast address. A client wishing to contact the server will send the packets to this anycast address and the anycast-supported router will direct the packets to the nearest server. This paper analyses the performance of single-path and multi-path anycast routing protocols under different traffic load. The analysed results show that the performance of these protocols is very much dependent on the source-receiver distribution. When the traffic load is very high, the results show that multi-path anycast routing does not perform better than single-path anycast routing.
