What Are All These Spikes?


[link to this post]
 
Have been running this graph for some time, and recent behaviour looks like I have scheduled anti-virus updates running or something, however I don't. Have had lots of visits from OR Engineers, especially when I had standard adsl broadband. So my question is, what do all the spikes mean ? Especially the spikes of packet loss? Is this REIN ? Or simply Sky reaching maximum capacity?

Do you have anything plugged in to your Sky router that does anything on a schedule? For example a Samknows monitoring box, or a TV or games system that is looking for updates etc?

It doesn't look like capacity issues I think given its too regular.

This is still ongoing with our connection at home, 2x PS4s(one wired, one wireless). Laptop running Windows 8 (not 8.1) no antivirus other than windows defender, malwarebytes pro. 2 Sky +HD boxes(one wired, one wireless). And about 3/4 mobile devices including iPad Air.

A recent snapshot :

So what is causing this regular spike in latency. If it's DLM. then it is taking an extremely long time to fix our connection, which had a fault on 29AUG2014, and has yet to get back to the 36MBps it was at previously

Far to regular to be REIN unless there is something electrical on a timer that does off at this period.

More likely to be a device using the connection. Time to turn off wireless and disconnect all Ethernet leads one night, and see what happens.
