Think Broadband Ping Monitor Results (POST YOURS)

Just wanted an expert opinion on the results below, its not a full 24 hours but I think it might explain a few things. Also it would be interesting to see other peoples as a comparison.

Also forgot to mention, I'm on the new upgraded upload speed of 5mbps, and apparently on a port that is not over utilised

yeah there is some spikes but his average latency is very close to his min latency so those spikes arent frequent. Agree tho its perhaps not actually the best I have seen, that reward goes to seph. His is low average with no big spikes.

Re: Think Broadband Ping Monitor Results (POST YOURS)

yeah his infinity looks ok, and looks stabler than idnet FTTC.

the VM graphs look odd in that some there posted with low load but they then suddenly get high load out of nowhere, the VM network can jump in and out of congestion mode far too easily. Even your graph on that page pip has it.

---------- Post added at 15:30 ---------- Previous post was at 15:03 ----------

I replied on that thread now, this thread made me laugh.

guy posts about been way too many high utilsiation problems on the forum, then a VM rep comes in and tells he also got high utilisation.

Re: Think Broadband Ping Monitor Results (POST YOURS)

Yeh Chrys, utilisation seems to be a big problem with VM considering the management on the network. Kinda proves it's not working!

If you look at my live graph above you'll see it's jumped again this afternoon.

Re: Think Broadband Ping Monitor Results (POST YOURS)

yeah some of your graphs show you suffering now also, expecially the one on the VM forums.

I will maintain what I said months back.

1 - management needs to be 24/7, load spikes etc. arent just a peak time thing.
2 - it should be dynamic based on capacity utilisation.
3 - it should not pick on just a few protocols, what happens if noone uses those protocols? noone to throttle. it should pick on heavier user's first and then keep going until there is free capacity to maintain QoS.

every other system I see employed tends to fail, especially protocol shaping, yet isp's in the UK seem to favour protocol shaping time and time again for some reason. Of course management shouldnt be used to replace upgrades, it should be used as a means to handle short term issues created by unexpected outages, balancing issues etc.
