G.INP - How long to enable?


[link to this post]
 
Hi all,

I've been on a Huawei cabinet with BT Inifinity 1 for a year (ECI modem) and just switched to Infinity 2 and swapped to an HG612 3B which I've unlocked. It's been up for 8 days now with no sign of G.INP. My stats are below.

A) is this a good line? and B) is it usual to wait this long for G.INP?

It's only switched on if DLM thinks your line needs it.

As lee says, plus.

Yes, you have a good clean line. You are also on Fast Path in both directions, because of that. The "D: 1 1" tells us Fast Path. A number higher than 1 is the interleave depth, the number of packets a real one is split over. 1 obviously means packets are not being split smile.

G.INP is only used when you have heavy interleaving, as that gives you extra latency of at least 8ms, see the "Delay:" line which is zero addition on your line, and also costs up to 11Mbps.

G.INP drops the interleaving depth to a low level, usually 8, delay usually back to zero and sync back to pretty much the same as Fast Path.

You simply don't need it smile.

It is true that DLM will only activate it if it thinks you need it and your modem can support it.

However, I thought the default thinking for DLM was that every line needs G.INP unless there is conflicting evidence. The measurements showed that the installed base shifted from 10% of lines being error-free (ie zero ES in 24 hours) to 66%. Almost everyone benefits from it.

This is a line running at near 100 ES per day, and looks like it would benefit too.

To the OP:
Sometimes the activation happens in a couple of days, sometimes in a couple of weeks. However, DLM has been a little strange in the last year, not always doing the obvious things. And I'm expecting it to change behaviour again this spring, as BT rollout changes to both Huawei and ECI cabs.

The HG612 also needs to be running the most recent firmware.

During the abortive G.Inp test on ECI cabinets, applying G.Inp to a stable fastpath line caused a 5 Mbps drop in sync.

G.INP was just enabled (downstream only). I re-PPPd to get a higher IP profile (now 75.6MBit as opposed to 71.2MBit) but download tests are showing speeds less than before (around 60MBit, whereas before it was consistently 69MBit).

Is it a case of waiting for things to settle?

Drop the PPPOE session again on the router, if the throughput doesn't go up then it would appear BT are somehow capping your throughput, Have you tried several speed testers, that BTW isn't accurate in the grand scheme of things

The "abortive G.INP tests on ECI cabinets" may not have been the best example to choose. They were, after all, aborted for a reason.

On my line (Huawei cab, with either HG612 modem or Billion 8800NL router/modem), activation of G.INP caused the max-attainable to jump by 8Mbps, from 100 to 108Mbps.
