Weird short term freezes in overwatch.
« on: July 02, 2017, 09:43:26 am »
I have a tenant in my condo, where I currently run the network, playing overwatch on grandmaster level, and he gets these weird short term mobility losses: his own character may keep moving but all the other participants freeze, or everything freezes including his own character. These outages usually last a few seconds, enough to lose the match, but no more.

What would you expect the problem.to be, and what could be done in pfSense to combat this type of outage?

Run a speedtest on dslreports's site and tell me what the bufferbloat results are.

Does your WAN's quality graph show anything odd? Have you ran pings to a known good few services and seen if the pings jump  up during this time?
