BT Congestion Monitoring


[link to this post]
 
http://status.aa.net.uk/1890

Does this sum up BT and their ability (or inability) to monitor congestion within their exchanges and 21CN network?

Probably.

I'm seeing similar on another exchange, my ISP is trying hard but BT are not easily convinced that their network can possibly be at fault frown

Hey, we track the congestion we've found on this page as well:

The complaint is about getting BT to track (and do something about) possible congestion, everyone else seems to find it without any trouble tongue

That could be a useful page, thanks. Even if my exchange isn't on it, but you can see my problem on the BQM links in my sig.

@ Kelly

Plusnet and AAISP are the two proactive ISPs in this area who do a very good job at identifying and publishing capacity issues.

The point I am trying to make is - how are ISPs able to identify capacity problems in someone else's network, yet the people that own and operate that network (i.e. BT Operate/BT Wholesale) seem unable to do so?

I suspect that what one operator calls a capacity problem is what another says is normal behaviour.

probably good answer.

eg. I consider delayed packets (higher latency) as congestion type behavior even tho throughput may not be immediatly affected. Whilst someone else would not consider it worthy of attention.

I think some have commented that they think its unusual that BTw has no SLA for packet loss?

In reply to a post by MrSaffron:
another says is normal behaviour.
When a BT speedtest on an 80/20 line returns this:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Download speed achieved during the test was - 15.43 Mbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 51.67 Mbps-64.58 Mbps .
Additional Information:
IP Profile for your line is - 64.58 Mbps

Upload speed achieved during the test was - 12.25Mbps
Additional Information:
Upstream Rate IP profile on your line is - 20 Mbps
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That's not normal behaviour tongue


eta- well, it shouldn't be, but recently it is in the evening mad
