Aargh DLM


[link to this post]
 
My UPS has just thrown a wobbler and caused multiple disconnects, which has caused DLM to intervene. It has lowered my previous 79999 with few errors down to 72040 again no errors. How long is it going to take to come back? I move to PlusNet tomorrow so getting them to do something is going to be easier than fighting BTs 'customer service'.

Has it turned on interleaving?

Yes at a depth of 1141 down, up is still fast path. Normally my connection is not interleaved up or down.

I believe a post on the Plusnet website about the DLM states that it takes around 8+1 days of no errors for the DLM to give you improvements. But can slow you down at any time it sees fit.

I had an idea it was going to be a long wait. This is the first time that DLM has taken an interest in my line, i've had Infinity 2 (80Mb) for just over two years now.

In the past when I had really bad issues with speed drops to 10Mbps (>2 years ago, star wiring ignored by installer) it took nearly three weeks for DLM to start significant improvements, and then another week to get to a full speed (around 70Mbps for my line). I think that the DLM may have been updated to respond a bit quicker now, and also that it responds quicker after relatively minor issues. Good luck

And it was your equipment that caused its intervention, you shouldn't really be complaining. smile

True, however I think that DLM is too quick to respond to short outages, I think that the activation threshold should be a little longer.

I understand that BT is testing seamless rate adaption alongside vectoring, Hopefully that will ultimately replace DLM and benefit those of us who get errors rarely but enough for DLM to throttle our lines.

I haven't seen any reliable source say SRA is being tested by Openreach, but even if it is it will be as a part of the DLM, not a replacement.

TheHorseman's problem is that interleaving has been introduced. That will certainly not be ditched.
