Beam 68 particularly slow this morning

Anyone on Bean 68 experiencing very slow download times this morning?  Testmy can't run the 25MB speed test. The automatic test (picks the size based on speed) is indicating very low speeds (507 kbps, 520 kbps).  Could someone tag Liz and Amanda for me, please?  I'm unable to do it -- the tagging thing times out.  Thanks!

For what it's worth, slow here too. Gen4, beam 13. Gremlins I think.

No issues here on beam 51 (ES19), other than the normal evening slowdown, so it's not system wide.  Hopefully it will be fixed quickly, if it isn't already by the time Liz and Amanda are online tomorrow.  

 

This goes without saying, but maybe a power cycle would kick it into gear.

Re: Beam 68 particularly slow this morning

Good morning folks,

 

Thank you for your updates, unfortunately I have none to share. I don't expect any to come during this short holiday week. I ran diagnostics on your sites, maratsade and Gwalk, just to be sure things were OK on that front; all good. 

 

We'll keep you updated on any news they happen to throw our way.

 

Your patience and understanding are much appreciated.

Thanks, Liz!  Everything showed green on the dashboard, but the download speed was uncharacteristically slow.

Thanks for pinging Liz and Amanda, GWalk.

@GabeU, that was the exact same gremlin that was on my screen!

 

I did a power cycle and it didn't really help....

@GabeU, may I ask what your normal download and uploads speeds are during normal evening slow down on your beam 51?  Maybe can give me a glimpse of what beam 55 can be one day when things get fixed.  Guessing well above 150 to 500K download and 12K uploads during FAP I get on beam 55 during the evening slow-down?  When not in Fap I had been getting down this low too during evenings but have to wait another week or so to get my data back to test all over again.

Last night I actually had one result that was considerably lower than normal, but you'll be able to see that my evening slowdowns are NOTHING like what you and others experience.  My slowdowns don't even really affect me, and even if I streamed I probably still wouldn't see any difference between day and evening, buffer wise.  

 

Really, about the only thing my slight evening slowdown affects is my Microsoft updates or file downloads.  I don't know if it's that the speeds aren't quite as smooth when they are lower or what it is, but Microsoft updates and file downloads slow considerably in the evening, and to a point that sometimes you'd think my speed was sub 1Mbps.  Microsoft's servers just seem to be ultra sensitive.

Yeh, @GabeU, your numbers look dreamy to me.  I can see you should really not have many issues.  That is what I signed up for.  Hope they get that working on beam 55, for everyone.  Weird this issue is only affecting certain people.  TJ
