Qos / Pingplotter question

Recommended Posts

Looking for some clarity on this one........ i noticed that when running pingplotter for a while that my graph would start out stable and flat (no spikes) but after around say +10mins the graph would sort of unravel and no longer reflect as flat and linear as it intially was. 

I normally run it to google but i have used twitter and or even game servers and the same results would occur. 

When this happens i can immediately see a difference in my gameplay experience..... the ingame ping wont spike but the pingplotter graph would reflect instability. 

Trying to keep it flat all the time as i legit have the 'superman' effect when going into gunfights with it flat and 'stable'. 

Any ideas what could be the cause of this?

I forgot to mention that it almost kinda feels like the Qos/AntiBufferbloat is de-activating...... i have had mine set to 'Always' and to 'When High Priority is detected' 

The same thing happens tho.....sliders have been played with in different variants to try and keep it linear for as long as possible but nada..... at present i have left it at 70/85 as that has given me the best experience.

Hi.

 

Depending on what server/ip address you are testing they can change while your in the middle of a test (bbc is well known for this as an example). Please next time you run pingplotter take a screenshot when you see it change so that we can better understand what it is you are experiencing and if it is what I said and suspect it is.

As BD said, could you take a screenshot so we can see what you are pinging and an example of the spikes.

FWIW - Anti-Bufferbloat will apply at all times when in Always mode, so it won't be timing out etc. Think it's more likely to be the server you are pinging (might be worth trying several different ones).

I would be inclined to agree at first if i didnt see the change in my ingame experience when the fluctuation occurs. 

I've taken screenshots before but struggled to upload it. Will reduce the megapixel quality and post some when i get home later. 

One thing i like about this experience though is that when the plotter graph is linear i can clearly see an enhanced gaming experience...... its like i'll be shooting super bullets for that period of time. So getting it to remain linear is defnitely worth cracking my skull.

This is the linear graph with sliders at 70/85......did not do any aggressive BB control as the plotter is relatively stable for my connection, i have had it better than this before with a more aggressive BB control with lower slider settings......my ping to google.com is around 40-55ms on average.

Modem only pingplotter test - clip 1 taken at the start of the test - ping practically the same - initial lag spikes which are higher than what is seen through the xr500 which is to be expected for me.

Modem only pingplotter - clip 2 - after +10mins - no unravelling of the graph as was seen around this time with xr500 (with qos / bufferbloat) - ping remained in its ball park

Okay so it looks to me as though your base ping is quite high and it's spiking a bit when connected to the modem. Definitely nothing else was using the internet at this time?
