Line monitoring BT Smart Hub


[link to this post]
 
Anyone know of a line speed monitoring app for BT Smart Hub?
The TB monitor doesn't work with a dynamic address.
RouterStats is a great app but doesn't work with the Smart Hub.

The tbb Broadband Quality Monitor will work with dynamic IP addresses so long as you are using a DynDNS service now i.e. it now accepts host names

BUT the monitor is NOT monitoring line speed, it is monitoring latency.

So what do you want to actually monitor?

I want to monitor line speed and SNR margins at set intervals during the day, so I can see if there is a particular period when the system slows down. Router Stats does this very well, but doesn't work with BT Smart Hub.

Can you not just get this data by going into the logs and viewing if there are any resyncs at a slower speed?

I agree it will not give you the SNR details.

If there was something to be concerned about (ie snr getting very low and errors building up) line management should retrain the line.

I could do that, but it is much more convenient to be able to view it as a chart, which Router Stats does.

Why not email the developer of Routerstats?

I suppose he'll open source Routerstats then so someone else can continue development
