« on: September 11, 2012, 04:30:16 PM »

- added option to plot CRC and FEC errors
- added 'Stats' page
- bitloading graph is now rescaled when SNR per tone exceeds 50 dB (really)
- fixed wrong DSL uptime shown with some routers (really)
- fixed wandering/disappearing "Take snapshot" button

Thank you Eric. Version 0.9 is currently being downloaded to The Cattery:)

Well I have it running on my backup Linux PC and it seems very sluggish although the system monitor does not show it is eating cpu. However I will test again when my main PC is running again in a few days time as this PC is a tad flaky.

The system up time does not show what I expected though. Currently it says 2568 hours 42 minutes 16 seconds which is probably the time since last boot or power cycle, what I was hoping it would show is what shows on the routers status page of 'Internet Connection Up Time : 28 days, 11 hours, 26 minutes, 44 seconds' which equates to 683 hours, this value is of much more value than the total up time. Is it possible to do this for the D-Link 2740B?

So far re-sizing has not lost the snapshot button, but at least on this PC the font size in the configuration panel is too large especially in the dropdown boxes.

Thanks for the report Stuart.

It's certainly sluggish during the 'Sampling' period, which is a significant proportion of the total time. A task I've been rather putting off (because it's difficult) is making it into a multi-threaded application, which should deal with the issue. That's my next job, apart from dealing with any significant bugs in the present version.

I'm sure it's possible, I'll just have to delve further.

Fonts can be a bit of a pain in the neck in Linux programming, but I think I know what to do about this.

I've uploaded a version 0.91 (for 32-bit Linux only) with smaller fonts than v0.90. The 64-bit Linux and 32-bit Windows versions already have the smaller fonts.

Eric Firefox cannot open the 0,.91 version for downloading, it complains about re-direction being done in a way which will never complete!

Stuart

PS I have my main PC back today so will be able to test better now.

I think that must have been a temporary hiccup in Google Docs, Stuart. I just tried it (as a normal user, without signing in), and it downloaded normally.

Sluggishness noticed on the other PC is not there now. I did wonder if it was the other PC, yes it is a tad slow if sampling but not unmanageable. Fonts so far look fine now. Be nice if you could sort the uptime thing at some stage. I'll leave it running and see how it goes.

That's a bit strange. The sharing configuration for that file is exactly the same as all the others, and Firefox has no trouble with it here. I'm afraid I'm baffled by this.

I'm pondering the uptime problem at the moment. One other suggestion that was made is to use the superframes (SF) figure, and I can get an uptime of the right order from this, but it's inconsistent between different routers, and I don't think it's provided at all on VDSL2 systems. There was a discussion about this some time ago on the Routerstats forum, and I think John ended up tearing his hair out over it. :)

I've looked much more closely at this, and I've concluded that, with some routers such as the 2740B, the current DSL uptime simply isn't available in any of the telnet stats. The AS and SF figures both give some approximation to total uptime (although they resolve to somewhat different figures). So, for the moment at least, I can't meet your request. I've added an option in the configuration section to choose AF or SF as the source of the uptime information, and I've added 'days' to the displayed uptime where it's more than 24 hours.

Eric I appreciate that, I am puzzled that the web interface manages to display a figure but they telnet data seems not to contain it, I might have a play and see if there is any way to get this value.

I look at the Status --> Device Information page of the GUI of the HG612 and see "System up time  24 days 22 hours 46 minutes 58 seconds ". That is when the device was last power cycled, thus (re-)booted.

I look at the Status --> WAN --> xDSL page of the GUI of the HG612 and see "DSL up time  1405793". Assuming that to be in seconds, it is equivalent to 16 days, 6 hours, 29 minutes and 53 seconds.

Looking in the modem log, I see the line "2012-8-29 10:51:56 Notice 104505 PPP dial-up succeed".

I look at the bottom of the SNR Margin screen of rs-ux and see "DSL connection uptime: 363 hours 5 min 10 sec".

It seems as if rs-ux is reporting in the correct order of magnitude for the xDSL uptime.  :)
