Problem isolated with TM

Right, we have just worked with our hosts and confirm that there is a problem with TM at night.

The main problem seems to be in one of the routers at which happens to be maintained by TM. This problem is not just isolated to our host but to many international sites.

TM replies to our host:

“Our link to LINX is experiencing heavy congestion especially during peak hour. This might contribute to the packet loss issue.

Thank you.”

Our host is seeing if they can negotiate something to fix the issue but this is also highly dependent on TM working with them. We will keep you posted on further developments and we have our fingers crossed.


17 September 4.47 PM: Massive loss on the route…at about 50% loss. We are aware of the situation and exploring our options despite it being TM’s incompetence. Will keep everyone posted. I will be temporarily turning off my MSN/Googletalk to concentrate on the situation and save my sanity  😛

    recently i heard that streamyx will lanuch new usage policy. the policy will be named as fair usage policy. this policy will restrict people who were using the p2p program.
    that day i call the tm center the tmnet agent said that it got very big different browsing speed when using 4MB or 1MB when we browse the website. i dun think so.
    are all of you agree about it? really do not know how to said !

    Which nut will want to pay for 4MB package just to browse website. This is what happens in monopoly. Service sucks and prices keep going up

    When TM still route the traffic via NTT across two oceans to the datacenter, the throughput is still OK even if the pin is on the high side of 600ms-700ms. The packet drop problem really starts when the traffic is routed westwards.

    Looks like TMnut is still the same. Damn it.
