Re: Does this look right, speed degradation

Go to solution

Many thanks bald eagle

 

I switched back the the Huawei modem yesterday afternoon, from my Vigor 2850 and haven't touched it since other than loading on the custom firmware for logging. I did notice the wrong ip address in the set time batch file so have corrected it and run it. I will get the logging 24x7 up and running, just having a couple of issues with the scheduled task, as am on Windows 8, so even though its set up with an admin account, I get an "operator or administrator has fused the request" error for the last run status

 

will keep you poster, your input is very much appreciated

Thanks

Matt

Ah, Windows 8.

 

W8 seems to have a bit of a problem with keeping the scheduled task running for more than a few hours/days.

 

I don't have W8, but there has been some discusssion here:-

 

http://forums.thinkbroadband.com/fibre/4216317-huawei-hg612-stats-and-graphing-programs-for-windows-...

 

 

Also, something to do with permissions?:-

 

You may have a 'stuck' HG612_stats.exe still running.

 

Firstly, turn off Ongoing stats Logging.

 

In Task Manager, if you can see it (processes from all users), end the task.

 

Then try to run HG612_stats.exe directly.

You may be asked if you wish to always allow it to run. If so, yes you do.

 

You will probably then see the output that is usually 'invisible'.

 

Once you have done that, you could start the Ongoing stats logging again & it MIGHT keep running.

 

 

There was a similar bug in Vista where the task would cease after a while (it seemed to sometimes forget the user scheduled task password, especially following a PC reboot).

That was dealt with, but we just don't know how to fully resolve it for W8 yet.

Re: Does this look right, speed degradation

I've had various Windows 8 task manager issues, as you will see on the thread Bald_Eagle posted.

Every now and then the task just stops running.

Forgotten password used to be an issue but I now have it running so that it does not require password and it still just stops sometimes.

I'm amazed Microsoft still can't provide a task manager that doesn't make glaring mistakes.

 

I got the You may have a 'stuck' HG612_stats.exe still running issue yesterday.

That is very rare with the new code; I think it was because of a modem reset (something to do only very occasionally).

I changed my tasks in Task Manager so that under 'settings' it says 'Stop the task if it runs longer than: 30 seconds'

I needed to type '30 seconds' in explicitly, it wasn't offered on the dropdown.

 

If you look in task manager history for the task you can tell the difference between the two cases above.

For the first, there won't be regular entries in the log at all.

For the second, there will be entries saying something like

Task Scheduler did not launch task "\testhg2" because instance "{6ae24bde-a441-4554-80dc-f0f358c6176d}" of the same task is already running.

There are alternatives to windows own task scheduler eg http://www.freebyte.com/fbtaskscheduler/

Re: Does this look right, speed degradation

when I looked at the windows event log I was getting a DCOM activation error, but could find the component it was referring to, I looked through the registry to to and match the class id but no luck.

 

When I run the exe it crashes.. but the stats one for current stats works ok. Something screwy going on, Win * also has this smart filter security checking

 

Think the easiest will be to set it up on my win 7 HTPC.. regret upgrading my workstation!

Good idea, thanks.  I will look into that.

 

Seems mad it should be necessary, though.  I find it irritating the number of other programs that sit around just to do task scheduling type functions, like the Java Update Scheduler.  It seems a shame to add another ...

Right I have set-up the logging and here are the results for the first 12 hours, sadly I didn't have the log configured yesterday in the day time to capture the connection drops from the modem log:-

Re: Does this look right, speed degradation

Well, apart from the really high Interleaving depth & quite a drop in overnight US SNRM, it looks pretty much error-free from the graphs you have obtained so far.

 

That could just be due to it syncing at such low speeds though, when so much more appears to be physically achievable.

 

 

 

If possible, it would help to get a good 'feel' for your connection's performance if you could keep logging & graphing 24/7.

 

If it does continue to resync regularly, you should then at least be able to see if there are any obvious reasons & also if any patterns to the time of day/day of week etc. are shown.

 

 

Try not to force any modem resyncs/reboots for a few days to see if DLM sees a period of stability & starts to improve speeds.

 

Are you now logging via a Windows 7 PC & if so, is it connected via the ROUTER/Home Hub or directly into the HG612's LAN2 port?

 

 

BTW, Are you aware that you can graph the ongoing stats manually, specifying the latest number of minutes, hours or days?

 

You can do that via the Run GraphPD button in the Setiings Editor's GUI or directly via graphpd.exe in the Scripts folder.

Re: Does this look right, speed degradation

I have set up the logging 24/7 running on my win7 HTPC which is always on so will monitor.. also haven't had much load on the line, but Monday will start loading it as VPN to work, plus have some heavier bandwidth applications such as for Cisco Telepresence (HD videoconf)

 

I will keep the modem up to see if/how DLM kick in

 

My connection goes Huawei->Vigor 2850 (WAN 2 via PPPoE)->Cisco Gigabit switch (Lan), win 7 connected to switch via 500mbs powerline. Lan 2 on the Huawei also connected to the cisco switch

 

Re graphing, yes saw that, thanks

Latest 1 day stats

 

There doesn't appear to be anything in the modem logs around miday yesterday where I see a drop in the charts.
