This is to announce the availability of MyDSLWebStats v 1.0, a free to use collaboration project between the Kitz and ThinkBroadband Forum users BaldEagle1, tbailey2 and RONSKI. With the right equipment and software to automatically upload data to the server via a Windows PC, you can then monitor your own DSL Line statistics from home or anywhere in the world using MyDSLWebStats on any browser on a Mac, PC or Tablet (a specific Android/iPhone app is an unlikely prospect currently). Linux should also be available but via DSLStats later.

The idea behind it was to enhance and expand the statistics that BaldEagle1's HG612 Modem Stats collects by putting the data collected from the modem into an online, internet based database. This means that just about anything you want to know about your past and current connection history is potentially available without having to store masses of graphs and images and wade through them to locate what you want! The modem data is automatically stored on a new dedicated remote server and accessed via the MyDSLWebStats Home page using the Registration/Log On system.
MyDSLWebStats can display a summary of your connection details in real time (in the same way as roseway's DSLStats does - and Eric is in with us on this project for his application) and, depending on various factors, you will also be able to view other users' data (and see it updated in real time if the data is current) as well for comparison. Multiple panes (see attached image) allow you to carry out several monitoring or investigative tasks at the same time.
Our Home Page has more details. There is no extensive help yet (under development) as it is still being developed but there are various hover-help icons scattered around that will give some guidance.
Please post queries/bug reports etc to this thread on this forum and someone will answer when we have time.
There are currently some 17 different data graphs available (more get added quite often) - the restriction on what is available is by the data that is currently uploaded.
What you can do is look at any of the timeline graphs available for today or a period of many days in the past on a LIVE basis updating every minute or a period of your choice. Then you can choose any two dates between the first available and last available and see a summary graph of the whole period (1st Jan 2014 to today in one case). Clicking on a point of interest will zoom in on many graphs - right down to a period of a couple of hours or so very quickly. All interactive graphs and charts are courtesy of Google Charts . Note that they do NOT look like those you may be used to from current applications themselves due to limitations within the system and the way we present the data but they do suit their purpose.
The only graphs that are not available per minute are the tone related ones - Bits/Tone, Bits/Tone SNR, Hlog and Quiet Line. They are available every 15 mins of the hour for 2 days, then every hour for 4 days and then once per day (this may well change).
If interested, please have a look at www.MyDSLWebStats.co.uk. There is guest access by following the links if you don't have a Log On. Guest access is intentionally very limited with only a few stats graphs available and one live line to monitor.
Log Ons are currently available after Registration but we may put a restriction on these temporarily! There is a limit of 10 characters on a User Name so you may need to adjust yours if you want to use one similar to your forum name.
A Log On gets you full access to various users who have data on there - tbailey2 and BaldEagle1 are currently live along with five other users. To actually get your data up to the server needs a modified executable file that will be supplied as part of the GUI install/update of HG612 Modem Stats (not currently available at the time of posting though and will be v 4.0). Note that this is a Windows executable and thus needs Windows to run under. However, Eric is currently working toward providing the same stats via his DSLStats program for both Windows and Linux users.
ALSO PLEASE BE AWARE that you are uploading data and also downloading a small amount. We estimate it at about 30MByte per month currently for the basic modem log that provides the majority of the stats but this increases quite a lot if you upload the additional optional Bits-related files. If you have limited bandwidth and your ISP includes uploaded data in the total then please keep an eye on what you are using. The system can handle both ADSL (limited tests so far currently) and VDSL2+ systems - up to 80/20.
