This page shows my network availability and performance statistics connected to the Australian National Broadband Network. It bases on earlier pages that I wrote for the DSL and satellite connections.

I had hoped that with the advent of the NBN, this page would no longer be needed. Unfortunately, this has proven not to be the case. While I don't have issues with throughput, the availability has been the worst I have ever experienced, with outages of up to 48 hours. It's not clear where the problem lies, but I have observed serious issues with the DHCP authentication that my ISP uses. More here when I understand the situation better.

The graphs show:

I previously had parameters "link status" and "TCP speed”, but they no longer seem to make much sense.

The graphs were made with gnuplot, and I'm not very happy with the smoothing. In particular, the right-hand side of smoothed graphs has too much influence, and it's easy to get the false impression that the link status or TCP speed have changed significantly in the last few minutes. If anybody can point me at a way to fix this problem, I'd be grateful.

Detailed outage information

This section monitors the NBN link for outages, including planned outages. I have manually edited the data to remove false positives, such as when moving house. I have a program that evaluates the outage information and produces detailed outage information. Here's the information on the past 20 outages, along with the overall statistics:

Total 337 outages, total time 738411 seconds (8 days, 13:06:51)
Average time between outages:	438161 seconds (5 days, 01:42:41)
Average duration:		2191 seconds (00:36:31)
Availability:			99.50%
      

“Badness” is an attempt to quantify the effect. It's the reciprocal of the number of seconds per hour that the link was up between failures (i.e. 3600 / uptime).

And here is the summary information for the past 10 days with a less than 100% record:

The dates in the left columns are in UNIX time_t format to ease further processing. I also have lists of all individual outages, or summaries per day.
