I see this as you trolling and little else.

Not sure why you feel the need to attention seek like this, desist this constant belligerent approach or you will get my attention.

To others...if you see it as trolling...ignore.

No, not at all. I see it as spot-on.

What high signal?
The signal which is the "S" in SNR. It is high due to the profile change.

Managed to remember that some results wanted posting, this is after 68 hours uptime, looks like I've had more HEC errors than what I've seen before but less FEC errors.

Works out at 7/1 FEC errors per hour and 20/0 HEC errors per hour

These are the current SNRM values below, but these can vary between 14.5/22 - 17/23, meaning attainable rates of 68/25mbps - 78/27mbps.
I've even seen/caught the SNRM as high as 19.5/24 before which meant something around 88/29mbps as attainable rates.

Shame the line can't sustain these speeds constantly, or even that 78/27mbps one, mainly stays around that 68/25 range. Though I can't complain when the speed before on ADSL was 3/0.8mbps.

What profile change? If you mean the one mentioned by bhawkes, it was made the day after I made & withdrew my comment about the high SNRM when you had no inkling of any profile change.

It's easy to be "wise" after the event, particularly when you are talking out of your blowhole.

Don't worry, I know all about the profile change as I am on Fibre, unlike you who is on ADSL? Dial-up? who knows...

Re: SNRM & Error levels


[re: Bald_Eagle1] [link to this post]
 
In reply to a post by Bald_Eagle1:
From the unlocked HG612 modem's GUI, these are my current details:-


In case anyone is still listening to the real thread, rather than arguing over the meaning of SNR, I've come across something of a hitch...

That is that the HG612 is not reporting error data consistently!

As far as I can make out, the GUI reports CRC, FEC and HEC by taking values from the "xdslcmd info --show" command, extracting the data as follows:

- CRC comes from the "RSUnCorr" field
- FEC comes from the "OHFErr" field (I have no idea what this is. Some kind of framing error?)
- HEC comes from the "HEC" field

However, the "xdslcmd info --stats" command gives different information (but is not quite correct about some of the presentation).

The last section of the "stats" is labelled "Since Link Time" (in my case, currently 14 days), and gives FEC, CRC and ES values that I can believe. These seem to be the statistics since the last synchronisation.

The prior 4 sections of stats give the stats for smaller, more recent periods (days and 15 mins). They too look consistent.

The prior section (labelled "Total Time") also gives statistics that i believe are valid since the modem was last booted. However, it then goes on to display a time that patently *isn't* the total time the the modem has been on - but the corresponding statistics do seem to represent the full set. In my case, the full uptime is just over 16 days, the "total time" is reported as just over a day, but the numbers in the statistics are higher than the later "14 day" numbers. In fact, the numbers I see *do* reflect the burst of errors I got in the 1st 2 days, which cause DLM to resync me with interleaving... which resulted in far fewer CRC errors (and ES) and far higher FEC.

So which numbers should we believe?

Here are my numbers from the different sources:

I always thought "FEC" statistics were the same as "RSCorr". These are the number of RS blocks that could be corrected by the FEC process, so are a count of teh number of correctable errors encountered. In ADSL, FEC is turned off when interleaving is off - so FEC would be zero. I guess FTTC/VDSL2 is the same.

I also always thought that the "RSUncorr" were the errors (uncorrectable by the FEC process) that therefore caused both CRC and HEC. However, RS blocks occur at a far greater rate than the CRC blocks, so you expect RSUnCorr to be the maximum of CRC+HEC. If RSUnCorr errors happen in bursts, then you might even expect 1 CRC (or HEC) per 16 RSUnCorr; if the RSUnCorr occur in a very spread-out fashion, then you'd get 1 CRC (or HEC) per RSUnCorr.

Looking at the overall output, I think the GUI ought to be reporting these values (or something like them):
CRC: 331
FEC: 6819524
HEC: 2987

However, I'm not fully convinced about the "CRC" figure here. I would have to monitor for longer.

I'm a little busy at the moment, so if I don't immediately answer any responses, you'll know why wink
