BQM

Hey. I'm not too great when it comes to pings, packet loss etc.

Just setup this broadband quality monitor tool and wondered if it's all looking good. Ran it around 24 hours so far.

Yes, looking good so far. No packet loss! It works slightly better once it has a full 24 hours under its belt. The time scale on the bottom can be a bit screwed until then.

Those three regular bursts look surprisingly similar? Times (if they are right) you were doing something?

The fairly frequent spikes seem to be a feature for some people. I don't think we have traced what causes them, but I'm not aware of them being a problem.

It can look quite nasty if you download and upload stuff all day long...

Those of mine were when the connection is predominantly idle.

Looks ok to me actually. The average latency in blue is pretty stable. The yellow spikes can be caused by one lone packet.

One lone packet, coming down the line
One lone packet coming down the line,
And if that lone packet,
Should accidentally fail,
There'll be no lone packets coming down the line.

Have you or the OP got a Samknows Whitebox or something similar which is regularly transmitting data?

This would certainly fit!

What I've noticed is that the spikes tend to be more frequent when uploading rather than downloading. At the moment I'm having to transfer some data every minute between two locations in/out. When not doing this, it's pretty much like the OP graph. Overnight when I do large backups alternate days, it can be a pretty solid bar for hours...

No, nothing and those are weekends when very little happens on my line. Even my trickle download of financial data finishes on Friday evening.
