[tor-relays] Problem implementing IPv6 and NYX info

This year I've modified most of my exit relays to function as IPv6
in/out. The process was easy with the exception of two , . I
requested and received an IPv6 address, netmask and gateway from these
ISPs. I then modified my /etc/network/interfaces file as follows
leaving the IPv4 lines in tack:
iface eth0 IPv6 static
ip addr shows the IPv6 address as global. I added a single line to
torrc following the IPv4 line:
After a restart, both relays ramped up to a volume of connections where
I was comfortable that the changes were good. Visiting them 12 hours
later I find connections in the few hundred and no flags. About half of
the connections were from non-Tor servers. The Tor daemon was running
and had a PID. Logs showed the relay operational and nothing peculiar.
Tor metrics shows the relay as down. I've commented out the IPv6 ORPort
line to get both of these exits going again. The procedure I outlined
has worked four other times for me. So what gives? Can anyone steer me
toward the problem?
And, finally, a quick question: Does NYX display incoming and outgoing
IPv6 relay information? I assume ARM does not.
