If a probe doesn't report any IPv6 address (other than link local) it will not get any new IPv6 measurements. If you look at the graphs for your probe, you will see that they stopped getting updated shortly after you moved the probe. Your probe still takes part in some IPv6 UDMs. But that is mostly because at the moment there is no mechanism to remove a probe from a UDM. Philip
