I had this the other day. Could some sort of delay be inserted to ensure the connection has fully restored?

perhaps some kind of delay can be added to resync emails to give the line a chance to pick up a ppp session.

I think that j0hn has probably got it right. DSLstats can only detect a resync after the DSL connection is restored (because the sample collection would fail before the connection is restored). So the likely explanation is that sometimes the PPP session won't yet have been restored. Rather than a fixed delay, it might be better to detect when the PPP session is up, if I can do a simple test for that.

i assume a mdws online check would work given you already coded for that?

DSLstats already detects the IP address so that would work?

Thanks for the suggestions. There are plenty of ways to do it, but they all depend on a timeout before returning a 'fail' response. I'm thinking that the best way will probably be to attempt to send the email, and if it fails, try again after (say) 15 seconds. Or something like that.

Hi

@roseway - kudos to you, that's the way to do this.

The only thing I may suggest, is a 2 minute delay between attempts and an expiry after say 5 attempts.

Many thanks

John

New to DSLstats, amazing program.

Have been running it for a few weeks against an Actiontec Q1000.  Has been working great, but a few times now it seems to get itself wedged and then finally just gives up:
06 Oct 2017 09:11:43   IP address is now X.X.X.X
06 Oct 2017 16:47:06   Implausible down traffic value reported by modem/router
06 Oct 2017 16:49:36   Implausible down traffic value reported by modem/router
06 Oct 2017 17:23:07   Implausible down traffic value reported by modem/router
... (didn't notice it for quite some time)
11 Oct 2017 22:06:36   Implausible down traffic value reported by modem/router
11 Oct 2017 22:32:37   Implausible down traffic value reported by modem/router
11 Oct 2017 23:07:07   Recording paused
11 Oct 2017 23:07:07   Unable to login to modem/router

I have had a packet capture running and with wireshark I get a nice view of the conversation (Analyze->Follow->TCP Stream) and, looking at the exact time when it reported the problem I can't see anything that looks awry.  Would it be possible for this log message to include a snip of what it doesn't like?  The packet capture and DSLstats are running on the same host, so I'd think the timestamps would line up as well as they could, but according to wireshark the first error didn't even happen at the time it was pulling the counters using ifconfig.

It works fine again if I just click the "go" button after it gets into "Unable to login to modem/router" state.

The "Implausible..." message isn't related to any actual error, it's just an informational message based on an assessment of how the latest sample relates to the previous one. To be honest, it probably doesn't serve any useful purpose, and it may be a bad assessment anyway. It doesn't relate to the subsequent "Unable to login..." message.

I presume that you paused recording manually because of the "Implausible..." messages? If so, the issue here is that, after a pause, it fails to login the first time. I can't think of a reasonable explanation for this, other than some quirk of the relationship between the program and the modem.

Resync alerts are still work in progress, but at least with v6.0.11 DSLstats will try. The issue now seems to be that establishing the PPP connection can take some time after the resync, and so there needs to be a delay after the resync before trying to send an email alert. I'm working on it.

I didn't stop it...I wasn't paying that much attention to it for multiple days then happened to look at it again and found that it had stopped.

Can the paused message originate from any other source than a manual pause?
