Lots of yellow on BQM what does this mean


[link to this post]
 
Solid yellow from around 4pm today on BQM - does this indicate a problem? Is it peak time congestion?

If the connection is being used heavily (lots of people connected), watching streaming (Netflix, Amazon, iPlayer etc) or downloading, then no its not an issue. If there was nobody at home, then it could be an issue.

What type of use were you or others making of the connection at that time?

in order of severity from worst to best

red
blue
yellow

on the graphs

red is packet loss and if you get that pretty much everything may be disrupted.
yellow means latency is spiking, just one single delayed packet will be enough to cause yellow.
blue is the average latency so if the blue is noticeable it suggests a lot of spikes.

if the time fits in with activity then it probably is down to your usage rather than the isp.
