speed check

Unread postby hamei » Wed Jul 17, 2013 7:36 pm

Not complaining, just cross-checking my instruments : has nekochan been noticeably slower for the past week or so ? If it is a worldwide situation I'll just let it go, otherwise something is off with our building, our ISP, or the gfw.

It seems normal to me. I'm accessing it when everyone in the US is asleep, though :D

On a real busy day that'd account for maybe a dozen connections......

^ Oh great. An hour on the phone with some country girl at China Unicom, followed by "Did you reboot your router ? Did you reinstall Windows ? What browser are you using ?"

Then an hour later some foo calls up to ask "how was the service ? Very good, right ?" and the Assistant is too polite to tell them they suck, so they go off with another happy face to put in their record book while our connection is still awful.

Maybe I'll just skip it :(

Thanks for the instrument check, senores.

It's probably just the monkeys on your end screening you as you pass over the Great Firewall of China. ;)

I blame our new member, NSA_XKeyscore [Bot], for repeatedly doing a traceroute on every IP address that accesses the forum... :lol:

Ha ! Kind of a funny but typical development on that ... it's been bad and getting worse but I had other fish to fry. However, about three days ago things got really bad and almost everywhere I tried to go, I couldn't. 70% packet loss on pings and so on. Amazingly, the China Home Shopping Channel was fine ... that's probably the only place they test against. If they even do that ... So we called "tech support" and got the usual runaround except this time I insisted they come here to check their wiring or whatever. Finally got a grudging okay okay, tomorrow at three o'clock someone will be there.

Tomorrow at two thirty, we had this tremendous thunder and lightning storm. Then it started to rain like hell and the wind picked up to about 230 miles an hour. Then I saw snowflakes mixed in with the rain ! It's August ! Yesterday it was 102* ! It's them radio waves, mucking with the air.

Amazingly, at three-ten, all those addresses I was having problems with started working fine. Decent ping speeds (for here) and 0% packet loss. At three-twenty the ISP called and asked if they could come next day because of the storm. We said "sure !"

This same thing used to happen to me all the time with Pac Bell. The wanside connection would go to crap. Call them, absolutely nothing wrong on their end ! Must be you ! Reboot your router ! Reinstall Windows ! Reload the graphics driver ! Defragment your hard drive !

So you'd lie and tell them "Okay, I'm rebooting my router !" while you stood there with your arms folded, fifty feet away from the router with 9 months, three weeks and 27 hours uptime on it. And within a remarkably short period of time the wan was once again operational.

Yeah, must have been my router, Thank you !

ISP's everywhere suck.

ISP's do suck, for example I admin a web account with Lunarpages for a nonprofit that tries to place released felons in jobs with established companies. Lunarpages has a policy of creating one username per account, but somehow in this case they created two, and when they noticed they couldn't figure out how that could have happened and their solution was to soundlessly terminate the account! No offer to refund the remaining year of hosting that I had already paid for; nothing! F-ing morons... :|

You try to rehabilitate investment bankers ? Cool !

Oh wait ! What was I thinking ! If you work on Wall Street and steal a billion dollars from old ladies, you are a job creator ! If you're black and smoke a joint, you are a menace to society and a felon !

Let's see, Friday at hakimoto's in Kabul:

Morning - DSL line won't synchronize
Lunch - DSL line still won't synchronize, it's Friday, everyone's off, plus it's Ramadan, even if someone was working they'd be braindead from fasting in this heat by now
Afternoon - Occasional synchronization
Evening - DSL line finally synchronizes, PPP connection comes up, one minute later the Chinese hack attacks (hamei?) start in one-minute intervals. DNS server can't be reached. No internet connection. Hm... let's go outside and play with the dogs, who needs internet anyway?

My ISP does not suck. Cheap, reliable, fast service. All I lack is native IPv6.

What firewall are you using? The "drop" feature in iptables is really nice for shunting off those kinds of attacks...
