For those that have been added it would be good to get a short sentence about how you use your connection, that will help us pinpoint anything out of the ordinary.
For example

Re: TBB Ping Graphs

I have Crash Plan (cloud backup) scheduled to run between 10pm to 10am,  as I'm now on FTTC this won't upload something every night and when I remember I'll change it to midnight to 8am, as it doesn't need to run for as long now.
Cloud backup (overnight), some gaming, bit of iPlayer and general family internet browsing. Won't be much use during working/school hours.

Re: TBB Ping Graphs

Did something specific happen last night (19th Sept) shortly after 23:30, all the graphs show the same packet loss at that time?

Re: TBB Ping Graphs

We have been having a look into the 23:30 packet loss ourselves this morning. Looks to have been around 50-65 seconds of packet loss, given the 100 second monitoring period.
Whatever happened, it does indeed seem to have only happened against our network. Some of the graphs we have of external connections don't show any of this.
It does however look to have only impacted the graphing.
External network traffic didn't experience a blip and as this impacted all customer graphs, suggests it wasn't a problem in the core. However, I doubt we would have ever seen a blip in the graphing if it only impacted TBB graphs (10,000 live graphs only generate 2.14Mbits per second).
