Reading thru a number of posts on the apparent problems with the monitoring system, I gather that something is actually going on and that it may be why my server keeps getting kicked out of the pool as soon as it reaches 10 or 11. I had for once the opportunity to see it “live” today and as far as I can tell by using my beginner’s knowledge and some tools like iftop, there was no outrageous traffic at the time it dipped below 10 (about 5 kb/s on port 123, my limit is set at 512kb/s). Mrulist does not show any particular agressive client. I confirmed that the config is as per the recommendations of the Pool Project web site and nothing as changed on that server for the past 2 years. I am located in Canada, near Montréal. The server is a small embedded device running OpenWrt on my network DMZ. Sooooo…
1- Can anyone confirm that what is been happeneing for the past few months is “normal” given the situation with the monitoring system?
2- Any recommendations as to what I could do on my side to further debug the problem?
3- Is there anything I could do to help?
Thank you for your time and I hope to be able to keep my little part of the internet on time!
