We have a client implementing a new VOIP system and one of the tests is relating to bufferbloat which is coming back with a sub-par result.
Test Pkt Loss Avg Jitter Avg Latency
Idle 0/1495 (0.0%) 2 ms 11 ms
Downloading 1/1495 (0.1%) 4 ms 19 ms
Uploading 0/1495 (0.0%) 5 ms 237 ms
Avg bloat : 117.00 ms
TEST RESULT : Grade C (under 200 ms)
The above results are AFTER implementing QoS at the Client via GPO, the Switch, and the Watchguard Firewall, bypassing all Proxies, and having direct packet filters for the application.
- Geolocation Off
- IDS Off
- App Control Off
Internet connection in question is an NBN Fibre 100 Down, 40 Up, 3ms latency.
Existing VOIP services are running without an issue, so I'm not sure if this is a red herring and if it could be safely disregarded.
Has anyone come across this type of metric before? And any ideas on how to improve it?
Thanks in advance,
