HG612 modem firmware update & band plan changes October 2013
« on: October 12, 2013, 12:03:26 PM »

I am currently updating the HG612 Modem Stats logging/graphing programs to take account of these changes.

It appears that current/snapshot data logs can still be obtained via HG612_current_stats.exe (for both Huawei & ECI DSLAMS & the attached version of GRAPH6.exe should be able to graph the data accordingly (not fully tested for higher speed connections able to use the D3 band yet).


For the time being, Ongoing data logging should be disabled to avoid multiple instances of HG612_stats.exe etc. ending up 'stuck' due to not handling the new/additional ongoing data being harvested.



Any feedback from anyone wishing to test things out during development of updated programs will be more welcome

I have now amended my programs' coding to hopefully allow for both pre-updated HG612s & updated HG612s without needing any user intervention.

It is undergoing testing at the moment & if shown to be reliable, I'll post it here.

This is an interim version, not fully using the new data as obtained via an updated HG612.

If it proves to be reliable, I'll include the new data & graph it accordingly.

Hi BE, just updated my copy of Graph6 and current stats seems to be working, I've emailed you a copy of the graphs.

HG612_Stats is also running nicely.

Yes it seems the current stats is working on an updated HG612 -> modem stats

My current stats didn't run at midnight last night, anybody else have this happen.

I've now also installed the updates at work, so we'll see how this goes as well.

I've just had HG612_Stats crashing every minute - it throws up a Microsoft error report window each time.

Isrunning files are created, not deleted but are blank.
Error log is not updated
Modem_Stats Log is updated
xlogfile attached.
Snippet of error log attached - which does show two instance running.

I don't like coincidences, but at the same time our connection speed seems to have plummeted to around 0.1 Mb/s 

Now I don't think this is anything to do with HG612 stats, I've turned that off, and rebooted both modem and router and the problem persists.

I don't want to derail this thread, so if I need help with this speed related problem I'll start another thread.

You say you've rebooted the modem, this is the old xlogfile. Any chance you can upload the new one please?

Just manually run HG612_Stats and it ran fine, also produced snapshot logs.

latest xlogfile attached.

Possible reason...

Since Link time = 1 hours 17 min 53 sec

FEC:      0      2

CRC:      784012      1

ES:      4673      1

SES:      4671      0

UAS:      4673      0

As you can see that is far from normal... got access to QLN and Hlog graphs now or? Your header count is rather high as well at 75144.

Are you normally on Fastpath?

HG612 stats crashed at work (running on XP), I had another Windows error reporting window, which obviously caused two copies to be running, thus stopping all further logging.

Things stopped at 01:17, this line was written to the modem log:

I've started get HG612 stats crashing again on every run, it would occasionally do it, then every time it ran.

Running from a command prompt it produces this prior to crashing, hope it's some help. Perhaps I shouldn't say it, but the copy at home has been running fine.

It does help (a lot).

I'll investigate further when I get home from work tonight.

The output does state that the data is written to modem_stats.log before the program crashes.

Are you able to confirm if that is actually the case?



It does seem to be XP or XP server versions that are more affected.

AFAICT, Windows 7 (& possibly Vista) versions seem O.K.
