2WireRealtime.exe

I released 2WireMRTG.exe yesterday, to allow MRTG to get statistics off the 2Wire 3800HGV router.  That release was in this thread.

 

I realize that many people cannot set up MRTG because they don't have a server to run it on, or would not want to go through the hassle of that much configuration.  I therefore am releasing this tool, 2WireRealtime.exe, which is a stand-alone application to view data rates and information from the U-Verse RG.  This program will not graph trends over time nor store data, but it will give instantaneous snapshots of activity on the RG.

 

This program is very easy to use, just download and double-click.  The program does the rest.  There is no installer, no registry entries are made.

 

There is an extensive ReadMe file that explains all the particulars of the statistics that are displayed.

 

Note: This program REQUIRES RG firmware v6.1.9.24 (the newer version rolling out now).  It will not work if your RG is currently running the older firmware (v5.29.105.94).

 

The program is downloadable from here.

Totally out did yourself!  Great program! Outstanding ReadMe follow up. I can't remember the last time I typed 5 pages.:smileyvery-happy:

 

Thanks for your time and effort to benefit us all. So much information with a click!

 

I would agree with Doneer that a good, better, best would be way cool.

Joe,

Great program. So much better than having

to dig thru the RG screens.

 

Numbers are a great thing to have BUT;

Is there any way you can show in your readme

file a range of  "GOOD BETTER BEST" values

so that we don't have to get to deep into

the subject of the fields that you provide?

EXAMPLE; 

                               GOOD         BETTER        BEST

Power Level          nn-nn            nn-nn          nn-nn


 

I don't have it in the ReadMe, but I made this post a while back that has a lot of that type of information in it.

 

I'll put this info in the ReadMe in a later version.

Re: 2WireRealtime.exe

I need a favor.  I'm an all Cat5e installation, so I have no coax, and no HPNA stats on my RG.

 

Can someone with more than one coax-connected STB please do the following:

 

 

Please pull up http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=C_2_5 in a web browser.  (If your RG is not at 192.168.1.254, replace that IP address with the IP address of your RG).

 

Do the following:

 

1. Right-click somewhere within the web page and select View Source (Internet Explorer) or View Page Source (Firefox).

2. In the window that pops up, click in it and hit Ctrl-A to select all text, and Ctrl-C to copy the text to the clipboard.

3. Create a new reply here on the UTalk forum in this thread.  Click the code button (looks like this:   ) in the toolbar.  In the window that pops up, hit Ctrl-V to paste the HTML source code.

4. Click the Insert button to insert the code into your reply post.  Then click the Post button to post your reply.

 

 

I need to be able to see this page so that I can write code to parse it.

Re: 2WireRealtime.exe

Thanks.  Yes, the forum has a posting limit that this source code exceeds, but it seems that in a PM, it works fine.

 

I have several samples now and they will help me add a new feature to 2WireRealtime.

Re: 2WireRealtime.exe

2WireRealtime v1.1.1.0 is released.

 

The program (.zip archive) may be downloaded here, or if you're already running v1.1.0.0, it will auto-update at startup if you have the "Enable Auto Update at Startup" checkbox checked in the Configuration tab.

 

Fixes and New Features

 

  • Fix bug in recommended profile calculation. Program was always reporting 32/5 profile as recommended even when the line would not handle it.
  • Fix bug in FEC overhead ratio - was reporting value for 32/5 profile even when actual profile was 19/2 or 25/2.
  • Added high-contrast highlighting user preference.
  • Add Ideal/Typical/Service Limit values for profile parameters in ReadMe.txt.
  • Add estimated VRAD distance calculation to Profile and Errors section.
  • Add frequency display for mouse pointer hover on Bitloading graph.
  • Improve accuracy of data rates on Interfaces page.

 

As always, please post here with any comments or bugs.

Re: 2WireRealtime.exe

I was told I was 750 and get 300 on this.  Wonder which is closer, not that it matters to me because I'm not having issues:

Re: 2WireRealtime.exe

The estimated distance from the VRAD is a pure estimate.  It derives the distance from empirical data from my own survey here in the Data/Stats Collection and Line Stats Analysis thread, as well as from the Dohrenburg site.

 

It's only roughly accurate.  By my calculations, it's accurate to +/- 400 feet for 95% of users.

 

So if your display is showing 300 feet, there is a 95% probability that your actual distance is between 0 and 700 feet.

 

Also, the reported estimated distance is rounded to the nearest 100' interval.  Thus, if the calculated distance comes out to be 1327', then the value shown in the display is 1300'.

 

You also have to remember that the U-Verse premises techs use a meter that also estimates the distance using VDSL signal parameters.  So if the premises tech told you that you were 1525' from the VRAD, that number itself has a certain error to it, probably 100-200', meaning that your actual line distance could be anywhere from 1300-1700'.  The only AT&T employees who have a meter that is very accurate for distance are the line techs (I&R group), who have a device called a Time Domain Reflectometer (TDR).  This device is accurate to 10 feet or so.  But most U-Verse premises techs don't have one of these.

 

The TDR is also the gold standard for detecting bridge taps.  All other ways of detecting bridge taps are estimates and may have varying degrees of accuracy.

Re: 2WireRealtime.exe

Downloaded the new program, but it does not seem to work correctly with an FTTP.  When I execute the program a window comes up with the whats new info.  After selecting the Ok button the main page displays and while gathering statistics a window comes up and informs me the page has stopped working.  The text says "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.  Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

Re: 2WireRealtime.exe

Hi Ronald,

 

There were some pretty extensive changes in the code for this version, and one of those changes may have broken something.

 

Please do the following to get the HTML source code from your RG, this will help me troubleshoot:

 

There are 4 different URLs of information that I need:

 

1. http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=C_1_0

2. http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=C_2_0

3. http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=C_5_3

4. http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=C_0_0

 

 

Copy each of these URLs into your web browser one at a time and hit enter.  (If your RG is not at 192.168.1.254, replace that IP address with the IP address of your RG).

 

For each URL, do the following:

 

1. Right-click somewhere within the web page and select View Source (Internet Explorer) or View Page Source (Firefox).

2. In the window that pops up, click in it and hit Ctrl-A to select all text, and Ctrl-C to copy the text to the clipboard.

3. Create a new reply here on the UTalk forum in this thread.  Click the code button (looks like this:   ) in the toolbar.  In the window that pops up, hit Ctrl-V to paste the HTML source code.

4. Click the Insert button to insert the code into your reply post.  Then click the Post button to post your reply.

 

 

Once I have this info, I can see what's going on.  Thanks in advance.
