Speed resiliency during the storm

With the big snowstorm moving up the east coast, the schools are closed, and most people are working from home. So I wondered how much of an effect there would be on the network speeds.

I ran shaperprobe, and here are my results:

$ prober
DiffProbe release. January 2012.
Shaper Detection Module.

Connected to server 80.239.168.202.

Estimating capacity:
Upstream: 3006 Kbps.
Downstream: 21398 Kbps.

The measurement will last for about 2.5 minutes. Please wait.

Checking for traffic shapers:

Upstream: Burst size: 3418-3442 KB; Shaping rate: 2314 Kbps.

Downstream: Burst size: 9946-10137 KB; Shaping rate: 15866 Kbps.

Those are the numbers that I always see (give or take the usual daily variation).

So it appears that the network speeds are not affected by everyone staying home and playing with their internet-enabled toys.

As it should be.

FWIW, that's just indicative of your local node / segment. Hardly a cross section of what is going on with the entire network.

True.

I could have worded it better.

How many channels do you have Camper?

We have 8x2 in our town in CT.

I think everyone in CT got our two upstream at the same time when that storm happened.

I ran this just a few minutes ago while my son was playing on his tablet and me streaming "The Grey" on Netflix. Not too shabby.
