I have three DSL lines bonded. Last night I was doing a flat-out download and one (only) of the three lines was showing fairly serious dripping blood in clueless. It was the line that is the fastest of the three by a small amount (<10% faster than the slowest). Is this normal?
No dripping blood anywhere at other times. That line is set to 99% rate in clueless.
Any thanks. Although you are using ICMP echo request response pings, not the graphs in AA's clueless which show PPP LCP echo request responses, not the usual kind of 'pings', a completely different protocol. But loss is loss.
Simon, it may be then that what I am seeing is just normality. I don't know why responses to LCP pings are not being seen coming back. I also don't know why this is only happening on one out of my set of three bonded lines. (The one with the highest sync speed, by a small amount.)
Does everyone get this all the time? On flat-out downloads only?
At a guess, I've not looked, it may need the speed setting adjusted in your FireBrick PPP config - perhaps it's set to a speed higher than the line upload speed and is therefore sending too much traffic up it.
