historically the JVM IPv6 support on Linux has been pretty troublesome -I
don't know if it's better now, because we all avoid it.

I'm not sure you have to disable it as long as all java processes get
started with "-Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true" as a JVM arg

If you don't say that then the JVM keeps trying to create sockets at the
IPv6 level and then fallback to IPv4 if it can't connect, which adds
overhead to all connections.
