This meeting has 3 main sections and then a Developers section which is optional for those not interested in the hardcore tech issues.

SOWN Projects Group (SOWN-PG)

Other Issues

  • SOWN press release
  • SOWN Polo Shirts
  • Response to emails for problematic nodes.

Lead Developers

  • Email list for node admins
  • Power problem with XR5s on a Cigarette-Lighter-socket powered-node
    • Can we power these boards over POE?
    • How can we do range testing? (Separate car-battery | Generator? | Other-battery-pack)
  • Throughput problem for IPv6 on home-nodes, will this degrade user-experience?
    • This isn't a CPU-load problem, it barely hits 20% usage.
    • Do the University/Janet honour a differential-services 'assured-forwarding' class?
    • Test results:
AF v4 v6
NO AF 182Kb/s 40Kb/s
AF22 219Kb/s 45Kb/s
AF11 179Kb/s 46Kb/s
    • Conclusion: no desirable change. I assume we have an efficiency problem with v6 packets in Openvpn v4 tunnels, perhaps the MTU needs tweaking. Further investigation required.
  • AOB
