Seriously choose one
Mostly a lurker as I only recently landed my first job with a NOC recently - I'm a "network analyst" not an admin or engineer if that matters.
Something I thought I might be doing often would be looking at pcaps and the like. Most if not all the time I have not needed to do this - generally boils down to layer 1-3 issues a physical issue or config issue. I find myself being at the level 1 support analyst never doing it. Pretty much it gets fixed without a packet capture or goes to a higher level analyst/team which I never see again as more tickets and calls come in.
I ask in part because where I work they use netscout and observer. Along with wireshark.
I am just left scratching my head a bit wondering if capturing and analyzing packets is more a niche skill then? Is learning how to read deeply into a pcap worthwhile or should I put my time and effort into say the CCNP or scripting for example?
Personally I think its freakin cool, one of my favorite things in packet tracer was turn... keep reading on reddit ➡
**Update at bottom of post**
I'll preface this post with the fact that i am a sysadmin, and not a network engineer. I'm pretty comfortable when it comes to switching, but rarely deal with configuring or troubleshooting routing.
I have an issue where only my server vlan, VLAN 100, will drop traffic to the internet, or our VPN clients (VPN users). If i do a continuous ping, in the course of 5 minutes it will drop 30% or more of the traffic. It will ping 22.214.171.124 4-5 times successfully, then fail, sometimes twice, then another successful ping, then another fail. It only does this from devices that are in VLAN 100. If i take a test laptop, plug it into one of our Rack Switches (Cisco 3650) and put it on VLAN 100, i get the packet loss i described above. If i switch that same laptop to VLAN 42 (our client VLAN) on the same switch port, no packet loss to the internet.
Does anyone know what would cause traffic from a specific VLAN to drop this much out to the in... keep reading on reddit ➡
I work in fast food and customers can be real assholes.
This Karen came into the drive through and wanted 8 sauce packets for her 20 piece nugget. We are supposed to charge if they get more than 4 sauce packets for a 20 piece. I usually don’t charge customers because I don’t care that much. But this lady was being super condescending and rude.
I charged her for 2 extra sauce packets meaning that she should get 6 in total. I was still going to give her the 8 but I thought charging her for only 2 was enough to get my revenge.
When she got to my window, I asked her to park while we waited for her food. She said “FINE I’LL PARK. BUT THERE BETTER BE 8 SAICE PACKETS BECAUSE YOU FUCKING CHARGED ME EXTRA.” I smiled and said okay. That’s when I realized that charging her was not enough.
She still wanted to be a bitch so I only put 6 sauces, like I was supposed to because that’s all she was charged for. I brought her food out.
A minute later the Karen runs into the store screaming at me th... keep reading on reddit ➡
Because so far, I have yet to receive even close to the actual packets I've asked for...
Me ( 26 M ) and my girlfriend ( 28 F ) are in a relationship for the past 4 years. We had been living together for the past 6 months.
This started with us having minor fights over silly issues. She has always had a high temper but I am usually able to manage it. Since our fight we lived in separate rooms, cooked separate food and she always kept the door of her room locked. Another thing to add is that this is my home, only I pay the rent, I had only invited her for a couple of months but we ended up staying together due to the lockdown.
Now the major issue came when I got irritated with the fight and not talking, asked for her forgiveness even though we both were somewhat wrong. When she still refused to talk I told her that "I just got off a call with my mother, she said if my gf is behaving this way, you need to come home asap, it's not too late to get another girl" ( mistake on my part, agreed ). I just could not live in a house with such an environment and decided to go to m... keep reading on reddit ➡
For the past 4-5 weeks or so I’ve been experiencing regular service disruptions every day. I have high packet loss in my first few hops and high latency during peak hours (typically 9-11pm EST).
I’ve tried a number of troubleshooting measures including power cycling my router+modem, connecting my PC directly to the modem, and pinging different targets. Always the same with the early hop packet loss and high latency during peak hours. Hoping this is a simple hardware issue that can be fixed because I’m running out of ideas!
I can provide account + modem details and a pathping to one of Blizzard's servers showing the packet loss.
edit: ottawa area
Today I experienced insane amounts of lag while playing. It looks like Packet loss, but isnt. Or at least not between me and the server Port. https://i.imgur.com/7xwMDAd.png
The connection seems to just drop at times and I see nothing moving at all. But at the same time I'm able to continue my combos which the server accepts and processes. Just without feedback for seconds at a time.
At the same time, in the same dungeon Instance, my friend is experiencing none of this.
Also none of my other TCP connections are having any issues.
Is anyone else having issues like that or is it just me?
So it seems as the last update implemented packet Encryption. And not only that they implemented it through the BattleEye Client, which is way way harder to bypass or figure out how it works. This means: NO MORE PUBLIC RADARS!!
Right now there seems to be a testing phase and encryption is only enabled on some of the Servers, whilst other still run without it. I guess they are testing how big of a hit the servers and tickrates take.
This is what is still possible just for FYI:
Taken from one of the cheat/hack forums (no I am not a hacker, but I always like to know what I could be up against, because sometimes you can outplay these things... if its not blatant aimbot)
""" The netcode has been updated. A few notes on the encryption:
* Encryption can be enabled and disabled on a per-session basis.
* If you get a session without encryption, the radar will work as normal.
* If you get a session with encryption, you will be able to see all of the loot in the world and all
Why am I teleporting around the screen in half of my games??
Ok but seriously, is anyone else experiencing what feels like extreme packet loss in half of their matches or more? I have a wired ethernet connection with ping at a consistent 20-25. Valorant is the only game I play online where I experience this and I am inclined to believe it is either something wrong with the game's netcode or the servers. Is there any official statement about any of this, or any hope that this will be fixed soon? I really like the game but it is super frustrating to be rubberbanding in half of my matches. Often times it starts mid-match too.
The Cisco Networking Academy just released a new-and-improved version of their CCNA-level network simulation software Packet Tracer. You can now download Packet Tracer v7.3.1 from netacad.com and in this brief tutorial I go over a number of the improvements and show you how non-NetAcad learners can download and enjoy Packet Tracer for *FREE*! This is definitely a tool that any CCNA learner should have in their toolkit! Best of luck to you in your studies! Here is the 10-minute 'techtorial':
That's it. Made my lunch 2 slices better
Has anyone done this? I have found a few recipes online that use it, but they all suggest using one packet for 8lbs of chicken! I'm cooking for my wife and I, we use a single pound at a time, at most, so obviously I'd use significantly less. I just wanted some personal testimonial about whether or not you thought it tasted good when you did it. Thanks!
Edit: Guys, I nailed it! Thanks so much for all of your help. These things are freaking delicious.
I'm a techie but my cisco skills are noobish to say the least. I know how networking works and have 15 years in the industry however I haven't used Cisco or had to troubleshoot anything on a Cisco switch or router.
I've just started a new jobs at a prestigious music company and need help with a task I've been assigned and hoping someone could remote onto a team viewer session with me and help me diagnose and troubleshoot and find the problem. I'm happy to.provide a reward for anyone that actually finds the problems and helps me understand how to work these thing 😃.
I'm loosing packets on a Cisco switch intermittently. all the other switches (DLINK) are fine. I have access to the web UI and am able to telnet onto the device but where do I go from there?
I'm from London and if anyone could at least help me or dm me I can provide you my number for some help from a Cisco tech guru.
Thank you in advance and any help would be appreciated.

Hey there, ever since i moved to my gf i noticed i get like 30-40 plus ping no matter what game or server im on compared to what i did at home. Connection speed is nearly similiar(also from what i hear it shouldnt really affect ping). At my gf we have 30/5 dsl connection and as far as downloading stuff its good. When it comes to video games however there are clear ping issues and packet loss. I started digging in and found out about PingPlotter. I did tests on several IP adresses and considering how good tests should look like mine looked completly garbage. I also made my friend do the tests who literally has the same connection from the same ISP as my gf. He had great results. To give a quick example, we did speed tests by ookla as well and both had nearly same download/upload results but his ping was 6 mine was 37. Also in all games i play with him or other friends im always like 30-40 above everyone (we are all from slovenia, central EU literally like 50 km from eachother at max.).... keep reading on reddit ➡
Not sure if anyone else is seeing this but we are seeing packet loss on TATA from the Comcast network from CHI to San Jose
9.|-- if-ae-50-3.tcore2.ct8-chicago.as6453.net 30.0% 10 73.3 72.5 71.1 75.7 1.6 10.|-- if-ae-51-2.tcore2.sqn-sanjose.as6453.net 40.0% 10 69.5 71.6 69.4 76.2 2.7 11.|-- if-ae-1-2.tcore1.sqn-sanjose.as6453.net 10.0% 10 69.4 71.2 69.0 80.5 3.7
Same issue happened yesterday and TATA said they had "received several large bursts of traffic from Comcast" which cause the packet loss. Anyone else?
Packet Loss, You've probably heard about this complaint before in this sub and most of the posts have gotten deleted because mods/devs can't accept criticism about their product and they've never said anything about this issue. if you've never ran into this problem consider yourself really lucky.
what's Packet Loss?
"Packet loss occurs when one or more packets of data travelling across a computer network fail to reach their destination. Packet loss is either caused by errors in data transmission, typically across wireless networks, or network congestion. Packet loss is measured as a percentage of packets lost with respect to packets sent." Wikipedia
Simply when this occurs the game becomes literally unplayable when your game isn't receiving data correctly from the servers. You might think problem is on my end but no trust me i have a 100mbps upload/download Fiber internet connection, I've never had any issues whatsoever on other Cod titles before until MW, I did tons of tests from c... keep reading on reddit ➡
I swear man. Trying to voice call, livestream or watch livestreams, play games, no matter what it is, if it requires a constant connection, it's a nightmare. It'll work fine around 60% of the time, with the other 40% being packet loss between 5 and 100% (usually more towards the 100%.)
I'm using ethernet, so I know it's not wireless shenanigans. I'm not sure how to figure out if it's either my router, my modem, or on Spectrum's end, so any advice would be very appreciated.
