Is It Really Slow Tonight Or......

Is it because its day 10 of getting Maxed? 402 kilo bits per second (Kbps), your service bandwidth will have been quoted to you in kilo bits per second.

Have been pretty much stable at 5MB (Synced 7.6) (6000 Stable Rate)

But tonight is, as you can see, painfull.

I've noticed a few evenings now that it all slows down to a crawl - well, hardly a crawl perhaps but much slower than at other times. I'm synching at 8128, max stable rate of 8000, regularly getting speed tests between 5,700 and 6,700, but tonight (and other evenings recently) it has dropped to about 2,000.

I guess that as our individual links get faster the contention issue kicks in...

First hop pinging in excess of 200ms again.

Too many customers, not enough capacity.

If you can get on thn-ag1 that seems to be working better.

1st hop pings are only 10 - 20ms greater than normal. All other gateways are poor.
Perhaps the load balancer is goosed?

Interesting.

Was getting appalling speeds around 800Kbps.

Just disconnected to do a BT Speedtest and on reconnecting to PN I'm now getting 3500Kbps.

Overloaded gateway somewhere?

I'm on thn-ag1 and it's fairly reasonable for a Monday night (which in my experience is always slow). I'm getting 1.4 to 1.7.

It's usually the two pte gateways that go for a lie-down at the first hint of a capacity issue.
