No More Congestion?

It would appear that Congestion Status has been removed from eSVT.  Anybody else see this, or is it just Beam 329, or just me.

Yeah. You can still see the congestion status as the fsr right icon on the top menu bar will be blue. If you hover over it, it will tell you that this customer should be informed that congestion issues may be causing speeds to be slower.....

I guess they just removed the dedicated gumball because it was redundant?  It also avoids questions like, "What is the difference between yellow and red on the congestion gumball?"

Hey Jep, speaking of gumballs, why would my web acceleration be yellow? Everything is working ok, was just curious.

Roo - No idea.  Maintenance, reconfiguration or congestion at the Accel site/network?  Beyond your control.

Gee, Old Labs.  No wonder Beam 329 is suffering with people like you sucking down data at that rate.  That could feed 25 other users at a decent speed.  ;-)

No, I'm pretty sure that's a flaw in testmy's algorithm... I've seen it before. During this one, it was claiming up to 1.3 Gbps for the first 75% of the download before dropping down in the 12 Mbps range for the final 25% - I personally take any and all speed test results with a grain of salt - none of them really reflect reality.

I've seen that too and, not just on TestMy, even my router's built in test sometimes gives me GBs but, on retesting it's more normal.

Congestion has been removed from eSVT completely (even our version here) It largely didn't confirm if that was the cause for many speed issues or not. Granted some of our busier beams it likely could have been the issue but it was decided it really didn't contribute much to troubleshooting and has been removed.
