Good Morning everyone . . .
I have opted to remain quite for a while as I wanted to give others an oppurtunity to add their 2 cents on this topic of disconnections and links dropping during Game Time . . .
I did not want to be a nuisance by every time just having my name showing up in posts about Game Time issues.
Never the less . . . I'm back for further comments.
I have also noticed some disconnections and time outs to Razor's Team Speak Sever during Gaming Time for the past couple of days now . . .
I did a Tracert and the results indicated little to No losses to Razor's destination ip when applying icmp protocol in Winbox Tracert Tool.
Stunned by these results . . . I decided to take a different approach and tried the following . . .
I found that when changing the protocol method in Winbox tracert from icmp to udp, immense losses of up to 100% were displayed on various rb's accross the entire tracert results . . .
Thus indicating that udp traffic has been disabled on these rb's on causing udp packets to drop to the point where the link to the host would drop entirely . . . And then these rb's would recover after a period of 2-3 minutes at at time.
Unfotunately I did not take screen-shots of this at the time as this was just a quick glance that I took the to see if the same results would show up in the tracert which I have done previously . . . I thought that admins might be busy changing some configs because the icmp traffic remained stable . . . So the link was active in that regard.
I will monitor again tonite and post some screen-prints on the forum - Most probably here, to latch onto my comments above.
Could I urge others to do the same verification of changing their protocol settings in Winbox Tracert Tool from icmp to udp and then retrying the trace should they experience a similar issue where traffic seems stable in a trace result (icmp method), yet connection losses are being experienced . . .
Thanking everyone for their time and effort in advance.
I know this is an effort to do a tracert every time and posting it on the forum . . . But it is deemed nessasary I suppose to draw attention to these issues should they become repetative and affect Quality of Service negatively on our Network.
Perhaps someone could propose a different method of reporting such issues and highlighting them instead of posting on the forum each time.
Thanks for the time you took in reading this . . .
Yours in Wugging
