Re: upstream vs distance


[re: Ignitionnet] [link to this post]
 
Wow that was a completely unnecessary rant.

That was borne out of frustration that:

1) There is no prospect of my exchange being permitted to take FTTPoD any time soon and
2) I'm a home worker with an employer happy to pay a fair whack for my connectivity and who requires it to be solid. I would be an obvious candidate for FTTPoD given I'm not at all shy about paying 4 figures for installation yet, due to the asinine nature of the product options, the retail prices I've had mentioned to me are 3 figures a month which my employer would balk at somewhat and quite rightly too. I can't justify that cost and I really shouldn't have to.

yeah was a much larger reply than expecting, regardless thanks for the read.

Tonight the tbb graph shows some tiny spikes but thats it. I tested throughput from some speedtests and ftp servers and all full speed, even tho lonap is looking heavy again.

I was getting very poor results from TBB earlier. Just tried it again and it says the server is busy.

Speedtest.net (London/Namesco) has been fine all evening despite a scatter of red at the top of my graph.

Perhaps staying with the bigger ISPs is a good move in congested times smile

I don't think that was the problem. It seemed specific to the TBB tester. Anyway it came back eventually at more or less full speed.

Interesting. I wonder if the guys who host TBB also host people who download a lot of updates from a certain company.:?

IDNet only have a single GigE to the LINX LAN. That probably maxed out due to the Apple updates leaving a bit of a queue for the TBB meter packets.

Had TBB maxed out every graph would have shown issues.

BT have 300Gb however that's imbalanced between 50Gb on the Extreme LAN and 250Gb on the Juniper LAN so not impossible that their Extreme LAN peering was maxed out by the iLeeching while their Juniper, PI and transit were not.

We host tbb ourselves and no-one would have been updating their mobile inside a data centre.
