When you do a Speedtest does the CPU shoot up on the Edgerouter?

Post the output of “show ubnt offload” from your router.

It’s never been an issue before.

This morning everything has returned to normal.

I don’t use bridging of the two network ports so cpu is low

Curious, what prompted you to move from Voyager to Slingshot ?

Hi @startupgeek

 

Side effect of yesterdays outage I am afraid. We were runnning in a degraded mode.

 

But all back as normal now so tonight will be much better.

 

Sorry for the troubles.

Front line staff get bombarded with soooo many emails about issues and the person you spoke with may not have read that one yet

You can't expect front line staff to know about all outages up to the minute!

The person I spoke to told me to change a network cable, also told me to plugin the slingshot modem I advised I'm a systems engineer and run a edge router and it could not be that. Then told me to that 100mbps speeds were good lol.

That's why I installed on my help desks large display boards showing all category one faults. All the analysts including remote analysts got screen pops when they were logged.

100mbps when there is a fault being worked on is better than no service at all.

If I had a buck for every time an end user insisted they knew more about troubleshooting than the helpdesk, but had to give $20 back for every time they actually knew more, I'd probably be about even.

 

Insisting that you're not going to change a router to a known good one, or refusing to stop programs while a diagnostic runs because you know better, while POSSIBLY CORRECT, is simply not feasible for any helpdesk to work with. If you can't accept that then you're going to have a bad time with any support system.
