"Wakacje przedłużone o dwa tygodnie" – tego typu komunikat ostatnio zaczął pojawiać się masowo na FB. Jest świadomie (a także nieświadomie) propagowany przez użytkowników FB.

Automated RTP headers analysis

Filed under: en — Tags: , — dariusz.cieslak @

rtp1IPTV technology delivers video streams using fast, but not reliable protocols (UDP). Those connection-less protocols do not guarantee delivery nor retransmissions of missing packets. We have to accept low video quality for some networks or add another layer above basic protocol that allows to control completeness of delivery. For this purpose we use RTP (packet order, completeness) and RTCP (retransmission requests) protocols.

In this port I'm going to show how effectively use Linux command line tools to analyse client – server cooperation regarding retransmissions for complicated real-world example. Basic RTP metadata collected by tcpdump is used as an input.

The old truth that everyone who spends days on business trips: hotels generally sucks at local Internet delivery service. The least important service in hotel is pretty crucial if you depend on it to finish some work after business hours.

However, if you are on Linux/Ubuntu machine there's a nice tool that will allow you to evaluate WIFI signal quality. It's name is: wavemon. It's a console tool that shows current (and previous) signal strength.

Having real-time measurement you can decide what area of the hotel have the best signal strength.
