late night packet loss

I wonder if there is a pattern here. Utilization. Problem upstream ?

Re: late night packet loss

The only way to know from your end if the packet loss is upstream or downstream is modem mode with a PC to allow ICMP for the BQM IP then with Wireshark
using the main filter before running
host 80.249.99.164
then with it running filter
ip.src== 80.249.99.164
then you change the view time display format
seconds since previous displayed packet
milliseconds

When viewing the ping times they should be 1.000 or 0.999 between each ping if it show a gap longer then 2.000 then its downstream.

Or much simpler pingtest.net with java as the pactek loss test only tests upstream.

or even a VoIP test

Re: late night packet loss

Thanks legacy. I have used Wireshark in the past so could theoretically do this test. However, I was rather hoping a VM staff would chip in a say 'Oh yeah - there a problem on this <thing> - scheduled to be fixed by December 2016' But then I am very lazy :-)
