quick question - this isn't specific to this version
how is the upstream RSCorr/RS (%): calculated as it bears no resemblance to the telnet figures

It's calculated from the delta values, that's to say the difference between the total values reported in the present sample and those in the previous sample.

is that the same sample frequency as the graph
this is the present example - nearly 25% seems rather silly - this is from a Billion 8800NL on FTTC
Code: [Select]
RSCorr/RS (%):          0.5530 24.6207
RSUnCorr/RS (%):        0.0000 0.0000
whereas the telnet values are
Code: [Select]
RS:             1288091020      3233846
RSCorr:         574             4528
RSUnCorr:       0               0
and the next set - only a few minutes after and even sillier
Code: [Select]
RSCorr/RS (%):          0.5523 235.0087
RSUnCorr/RS (%):        0.0000 0.0000
ES/hour:                0 0
and another set
Code: [Select]
RSCorr/RS (%):          0.5508 18539.0391
RSUnCorr/RS (%):        0.0000 0.0000
ES/hour:                0 0
I just realised something - there are two sets of corrected errors - bearer 1 and bearer 2 is this relevant
Code: [Select]
                        Counters
                        Bearer 0
OHF:            0               0
OHFErr:         350             31
RS:             4132625256      1007609
RSCorr:         22561717        772422
RSUnCorr:       0               0
                        Bearer 1
OHF:            214848124      765619
OHFErr:         0               19
RS:             1289088374     3901340
RSCorr:         574             4528
RSUnCorr:       0               0

Think I've found an oddity either with DSLstats or the Modem 8800NL once you go into modems GUI and select Stats/Statistics/xDSL and then reset the values in there the RPI running DSLstats uptime then resets and then MDWS thinks a retrain has occurred.

I'll try this again tomorrow and see if does the same thing.

I think you mean Bearer 0 and Bearer 1. The figures on the Stats page refer to Bearer 0, which is the data channel. Bearer 1 is for G.Inp only, and has no relevance in this context.

5.9 keeps crashing for me at least once a day...

I'll need to know a lot more than that to make any useful response:

- What operating system?
- Exactly what do you mean by "crashing"?
- If an error message appears, what happens if you select the option to keep running and risk losing data?
- Is there any pattern, or do the crashes appear completely random?

A few things come to mind:

You have DSLstats installed in a folder at the top level of the C: drive, and from time to time users have reported problems with this, which go away when it's installed in one of the user's own folders (under Program Files for example). If you had v5.8 installed in the same way, then this is probably a red herring, but if not then it might be worth moving it.

The fact that v5.8 worked well suggests that the problem relates to changes made since then. I'll investigate this, but nothing leaps out, and several people are using v5.9 on Windows without issues.

Someone who contacted me via my website with a somewhat similar issue found that reinstalling DSLstats and deleting its configuration files before restarting fixed the problem. The configuration files are by default saved in the AppData folder, which is the same as where snapshots are saved (unless you've changed this).

Thanks for replying. I now deleted the dslstats folder under appdata and extracted a fresh 5.9 ZIP into my D: drive instead.


Will report back if any crashes occur still.

It's been more than 24 hours and no crashes so far.  :fingers:

Some suggestions.

Email ssl/tls uses the CBC3 cipher which by today's standards is old, can it be possible to use AES (ideally GCM).
When I first clicked test for the email nothing happened, then I thought I would tick the send email alerts box and then the test worked, but it wasnt immediately obvious that the send email alert option should be enabled to do a test, so maybe grey out the test button if the send alert option is disabled.
For the graphs they default to adsl1 frequency range, I know they can be adjusted which I have done, I dont know yet if the adjustment is remembered between restarts, but is it possible to add preset adjustments so e.g. adsl1/adsl2+ and VDSL2 17A

I've taken account of these comments in the version I'll be uploading later today. For the present I haven't changed the SSL/TLS cipher because I don't know how to. I use a simple mailing library which doesn't offer this option, so I've got some more learning to do. But I've corrected the non functioning of the 'Test' button when email alerts aren't enabled.

The compress/expand function for the tone referenced graphs is now handled by a popup which includes presets for the three main DSL types, and it controls all of the graphs with one adjustment. Some of the graphs have been slightly redimensioned so they all have the same x axis dimensions.

I've been using v5.9 on a Raspberry Pi 3 for a couple weeks with a CenturyLink Actiontec C1900A.  I've been using the C2000A model setting, and the program has been working great.  I love being able to see all the details on the FEC and CRC errors vs time. The only wrinkle is my service is a bonded connection, and the only way I could figure out how to see both lines was to run two instances of the program.

CenturyLink just gave me a new modem, the Technicolor C2100T. This is also a Broadcom-based modem, with the same xdslctl0/xdslctl1 command set as the C1900A.  I can't seem to get DSLstats to work with the Technicolor modem though.  I chose the Technicolor C2000T model.  I keep getting the message, "No data returned in latest sample."

Is there any way to get DSLstats to work with this modem, or is the Technicolor not compatible? I'm using MDMstats for now, but I miss the details that DSLstats provides.

Manually login via telnet and check the commands work with that format. Perhaps post the results of the telnet window and Eric may be able to help further.
