LAN freezes every 10 minutes exactly   13 December 2016, 14:28

Hi,

I'm getting network freezes over LAN when transferring files or watching media from server running Bandwidth Manager. This happens at recurring intervals every 10 minutes exactly for a few seconds. Happening with latest version of BWM, but was also happening with last 2 versions as well. If I stop service and attach server to network like any other PC the problem goes away.

My setup is Win 10 64bit with latest build (but was also happening with the last couple of builds as well). BWM is running with bridging adapters setup. I've tried building another server and excatly the same thing happens. I also know of someone else having exactly the same issue and the only thing in common apart from Win 10 is BWM. The first freeze can happen anytime within 10 minutes, but then each subsequent freeze is exactly 10 mins from first.

As far as I can tell there aren't any internal activities in BM that would run at 10 minute intervals, but I'd like to see your complete ruleset.

Could you perhaps export your configuration to a .DB file, compress it to ZIP and send to me through this form?

Hi I attached the requested db file via the form.

This problem seemed to have started with Win 10 too.

I am having exactly the same issue. Tried complete reinstall on different PC and still the same.
Has this been resolved with the latest version? I'm using 3.2.3. Can't try 3.2.5 as licence has expired.

@Karnage: I don't have the freezing problem, just wanted to tell you that you can try the latest version even if your licence expired. SoftPerfect Bandwidth Manager has free fully featured 30 day trial, so you can give it a good test for a month absolutely for free.

The most important thing here is that you should make sure you have the installation files for the old version for which you have the licence and the licence key itself. Keep them all safely. Then, if after trying the new version you want to go back, simply uninstall it, install the old version and enter your licence key. Alternatively, if you have is option, you can try the new version on another machine, without touching your old licensed version.

Sometimes you can get the answer faster if you try the forum search and/or have a look at the software user manual to see if your question has already been answered.

  • Be polite.
  • Do not spam.
