10561BBS Latency issues - agian
- May 12, 2013Both client and the server are now on different "live channels) I.E
Client: Desktop/PuTTY > KPC3 > Kenwood H/T > 15' antenna
RaspberryPi > TNC-X > FTM-350 > 40' antenna
Connecting to linbpq32 mycall-10 works well though CMS may make you wait.
The KPC3 (Client) channel works with a -8 about 40 miles away (I guess an old DOS BBS) responses are good at all stages.
Connecting to linbpq32 mycall-8 works but;
Time between "Connect" and the welcome to BBS etc splash 3 <> 15 secs
A simple L command 3 <> 15 secs
SP W4JPA e.g. might take up 20 seconds for Title invitation
Similar for enter message invite.
And other similar latencies exist.
Whilst "waiting", the linbpq server's TNC-X reflects the wait length. I.E. We're not seeing a whole bunch Rx/Tx requests for package re-sends. We are waiting for the server to send.
So the big question; Are others using the raspberry pi seeing anything like this? Is the RPi able to handle this db(wp) stuff?
Or should I be looking elsewhere (in the .cfg's perhaps) to hasten things up?
