TBB nasty graph

I didn't bother to check at the time but I did have a lot of in game lag from 10pm onwards.  Warframe is 4 player P2P co-op, so I put it down to bad hosts at the time.

Re: TBB nasty graph

Mine looked unusually bad last night too, and was barely being used -


for comparison here is what my TBB graph usually looks like (the day before) -

Ignore the red bar at 10:00, that was me changing to a new modem/router.   Roll eyes

Re: TBB nasty graph

No, it was just an observation.
Again for information, and not apparently causing performance problems, also see http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,117276.msg1014073.html#msg1014073
It is interesting that my TBB latency graph is often FAR WORSE when the line is hardly being used, but is normally good when some activity (as little as one PC browsing) is occurring !.

Re: TBB nasty graph

Got this too just past 10pm:

I was the only one in the house playing an offline singleplayer game. The red bit was me restarting the router.
Also noticed that at peak times when I ping bbc or google I get the odd spike of 50-100ms when the rest is a steady 10ms. Bit disappointing Sad

@Gus
I'm just taking a look at your line, I've also noticed your upload is capped. It's worth uncapping this if you're happy for me too?

Re: TBB nasty graph

Chris, No never.  Uncapping makes my line unstable, I have had the pleasure of having my upload uncapped twice and each time my connection becomes unstable until its reinstated.  Extra speed would help if I have to host games but otherwise no.  I will only get faster uploads if I upgrade to fibre, but I can't afford that unless my gas/electric tariffs change for the better.

Re: TBB nasty graph

I've left your upload capped, I've placed a SNR reset on your line as your downstream and upstream SNR target is currently set at 12dB. This will complete in the next 4 hours and we'll see if this makes any difference.
Other than that your line looks fine.
