Packet shaping problems/Internet latency 2009-04-13 17:32
An update to the traffic shaping box has caused some intermittent latency problems with both of our internet connections. A support case is open with the company and the issue is being worked on. The update has more clearly shown us hitting the limits of the current boxes capabilities. To resolve the situation the Packet shaping vendor is replacing our current packet shaper, their highest end unit from last year, with their just released new product free of charge. Improvements should be noticeable beginning of next week. ---update 04/13/2009 17:00--- The new box is here and in place, however, due to a bug, the traffic matching isn't working correctly out of the box. This means that some traffic will be slower than usual. The problem is being worked on and should be solved in the next 30 minutes or so. ---update 04/13/2009 22:50--- After several failed attempts to update the box to the latest firmware, it finally complete successfully and is optimizing traffic again. Monitoring traffic to see if the other problems are solved also.
