RTX Low Possible?


[link to this post]
 
Hi guys,

I've seen that many people have managed to force DLM to change the RTX level from high to low, by capping the downstream line rate. I would appreciate it if someone can analyse my stats below, to see if it's likely that DLM will do this on my line.

Also, can anyone advise as to why re-transmissions would just suddenly stop like this? They've stopped several times in the past and sometimes for a few hours at a time. I can't find anything in the house that turns off when this occurs...

Your current stats indicate that your downstream is still on 'retransmission high'.

INPRein:        1.00


This needs to be 0.00 for it to be 'retransmission low'.

Your line is heavily banded at 30Mb.
I would be more interested in fixing that than getting a tiny increase in throughput.

Retransmission Low offers less protection than Retransmission High and considering your line is banded so heavily I wouldn't be trying to decrease protection.

Pointless adding a cap anyway... it's capped by the DSLAM.

That's a much heavier cap than would be needed to get retx low so your line doesn't want to go there.

And even that doesn't zeroise retransmissions. (Ref the second post by the OP).

Bob, I know it doesn't. I'm not wanting to stop the retransmissions, I was wondering why they suddenly stop and start, for no apparent reason? Plus, I also know that INPRein has to drop from 1 to 0, too, hence why I know the downstream is 'retransmission high'.

[re: WilliamGrimsley] [link to this post]
 
Ref that second post of yours, presumably there is somewhere along the line that someone else turns things off then back on, and it is that causing the zeroising for a while of the retransmissions.

It's a pity in a way you have hijacked your own thread with a different Subject altogether from the opening one. It just causes confusion.

Indeed.
I'm wondering why you were asking for advice on capping your line and then posting stats that you've already done it.

You should probably have linked to the relevant thread on kitz as anyone who doesn't use that site probably has no idea what you're talking about.

To the point, the cap you have placed is more than sufficient for most lines.
Some lines just refuse to go to Retransmission Low though, even after weeks of capping.

I've only seen the rtx_tx drop like that from interference caused by powerline adapters.
This was on my own line.
I was using a Powerline adapter for my YouView multicast channels and any time I was sending data over the powerline my FEC and rtx_tx shot up considerably.
FEC would go from roughly 1,000/min to 10,000+/min.
rtx_tx would increase from 10/min to about 100/min.

As soon as I stopped watching using data over the powerline kit then the numbers would immediately go back to the lower levels.

Having the plug socket that was right next to my master socket removed fixed this instantly.
I wasn't even using that socket but it made no difference, the electrical wiring ran parallel to the incoming phone line.
The socket and its wiring was removed and those symptoms haven't returned since.

Because I wasn't asking for advice on that?! I was wondering if the stats I posted would be good enough for DLM to reduce the level of retransmission to low.

Agreed, sorry. Here it is: https://forum.kitz.co.uk/index.php/topic,22086.0.html

I'm also using powerline adapters, but there was no change in what was being used by them during the decrease/increase in retransmissions. Maybe most of the retransmissions are being caused by something that's outside of the house, that I can't control. LOL. Unfortunately, the electrical wiring/sockets that give power to the devices in the room where the router is, cannot be moved. But, I don't think it's that because sometimes the FECs/retransmissions stop completely for minutes at a time.
