2.3.2 –> 2.3.3 Intermittent traffic degradation



  • Upgraded to 2.3.3 from 2.3.2 and noticed after 2 days that there is a considerable amount of random stalling occurring on various websites throughout the day.

    I am currently troubleshooting the issue, but wanted to start a thread in case others are witnessing similar issues and may have some insight.



  • Starting with the Traffic Shaping….shutting it off for the next 24 hours to see if it might be related.



  • I wonder if it might be related to this:

    Is your issue happening with the same or similar frequency?

    No, it doesn't appear to be packet loss in my instance.  I have had pings running to my monitors and Google now for over an hour with no observable loss.

    I still suspect the traffic shaping, but I won't know for sure until I run longer without it enabled.



  • What kind of connection to the web do you use?

    I use multiple connections with gateway groups.

    In update to this problem, it does indeed appear to the traffic shaping.  When the traffic shaping is on, problems, when it is not, good.

    I might try to rebuild my traffic shaping rules after the update and see if that helps.  For now, I'm going to leave it off until I can investigate further.
