CTP1 - Traffic Graph resolution


Using a (relative fast) downlink of 20MBits/sec (= max 2MB/s) the Traffic Graph has a maximum resolution of 14000KB/sec.
I would like the graph resolution to be configurable (or even auto adjusting) to the maximum up/download speed.

Thanks for the feedback. This definitely is a point. Since ADSL is becoming even more asynchronously today, having different scales for upload and download would be a good change.

I will think about a solution here, maybe having two scales, one on the left and another on the right.... sth. like that.

oh... not asynchronously but asymmetric of course... o:)

Well... that would also be a nice. to have?

But I do not think that is the issue here. What I am seeing is a Graph that maxes out to 14MBytes/sec. But my traffic does and will never exceed 2MBytes/sec (as I have a downlink speed of 20MBits).
Viewing my screen capture you will notice the green line is at only 10% of the resolution. In my case the maximum value in the graph will never exceed 2000KB/sec...
So I would expect the Graph to go form 0 to about 2000KB/sec. Not 14000 as it is now?

Ah, okay now I see. The issue here is that many routers return 100Mb as max speed and not the max connection speed (which the router agreed with the ISP on).

This is an issue with many routers and I was already thinking about scaling to the traffic and not the maximum reported connection speed. Or to handle 100Mb specifically. Can you please attach the "D:\folders{3EB3E1B1-5A8B-45E3-9F9A-573D1088B3B5}\RouterControl.IO.log"? This will allow me to see which EXACT speed is reported by your router.

No such file as a "RouterControl.IO.log" here. I asume the file you requested was {3EB3E1B1-5A8B-45E3-9F9A-573D1088B3B5}\Service.IO.log? (attched) Let me know if you need another file?

(FYI: I noticed a temporarely "glitch" with some high trafic (really?) that made the graph temprorarely max out to 500,000KB/sec but then after a few minutes it sattled down to the usual 14,000KB/secs. I had just before restarted the server and noticed RC had lost connection to the router. Impatiently - I did a resan and it was OK. Next time I will wait to see if it auto-reconnect will regain the connection?)

Yes, sry, you're right.

There currently is a bug in the auto-reconnect. It won't reconnect by itself. It's a known issue - at least to me :p .
