Re: Speed Test results: new CSV file vs old Txt

A home router has at least two IP addresses as shown in the diagram below. Here is an article about that: Internal and External IP Addresses Explained.

Re: Speed Test results: new CSV file vs old Txt

Thank you for your feedback. I guess we can disregard the mystery with the speed test date. Whatever caused it, it's not happening again. Regarding the ping time of 0ms vs 8ms, in this case you pinged your own IP address. Obviously the ping to the router is always near zero, while the ping to an external server used in speed testing would take longer. The speed meter reports the latter. The &q

It seems in the date not only the day is wrong in your files, but also the year - it was recorded as 2018-02-01 19:38:04. The only reason I can think of is an incorrect system time. What about the dates shown in the Speed Meter window: are they correct? What about any other dates, say in Usage Reports? Regarding the new vs old text format, the new format was simplified to allow easy charting.

Re: VPN data usage statistics

2 months ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

When the Ignore local traffic within the LAN option is selected and a VPN is used, there is a chance of network traffic being counted more than once. It really depends on how a particular VPN software was created and operates. For accurate readings when VPN is used, I recommend unticking this option and instead selecting the network adapter used for Internet access in the drop-down list.

Re: VPN data usage statistics

It really depends on the selected monitoring options, in particular the adapter chosen under Monitored interfaces and whether the Ignore local traffic within the LAN option is on. If you post here a screen shot of your main settings tab, I will be able to advise further.

Re: RAM disk is slower on the new server

2 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

It's hard to say, but I am guessing for some reason your memory runs slower than it should. There is a freeware app called MaxxMEM. I recommend benchmarking the RAM on both servers and compare the results. Then, if the result is also half the speed, it would be a good idea to take a look at the timings and frequencies in CPU-Z or a similar tool. Please post your findings here.

Re: RAM disks suddenly unmounted without any Windows events

2 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

Generally when a RAM disk is created all the required memory is preallocated, so changes to memory space should not affect it, but I suppose it is possible. If this issue happens again, please let me know any additional observations you may have then.

Re: RAM disks suddenly unmounted without any Windows events

2 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

Sorry, we don't know how/why it happened. There is simply no code in the RAM Disk driver that could have unmounted a disk without an external command. As to the logs, the RAM disk driver does not keep them. My best guess would be that the sudden, unexpected disk unmounting was either due to a human error, i.e. someone logged in and unmounted the disks, or due to some different process issuing

Re: Subfolders are not created sometimes

2 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

It's hard to tell really. The nested folder support for boot-time RAM disks has been added in version 4.0.4, and we have never seen any partially created folders in our tests. We also run some more tests creating the exact copy of your structure multiple times, and every time it is created successfully: You could try a different file system for this RAM disk, e.g. NTFS instead of exFAT,

Re: Exempting rule for unlimited bandwidth

Yes, the above rule basically just tells the Bandwidth Manager not to restrict bandwidth to a specific IP address. That could be a gaming server or anything else.

Re: Using column values in RegEx

2 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

Thank you for your feedback. Definitely your suggestions A to D above sound useful and we'll review and implement some or all of them. Regarding the issue where the program restores all the hidden columns and erases the regex and properties, could you please provide a reproducible test case? What exactly did you do to make it happen? In the meantime, good news: we've implemented column layo

Re: Choosing a drive letter for RAM disk and RAM disk image

2 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

To anyone new to RAM Disk wishing to work with image files, we highly recommend reading the RAM Disk user manual, to understand the concept of RAM disks and RAM disk images. Once you have done that, you will see why a RAM disk and its image file cannot possibly have the same disk letter: a RAM disk is a segment of computer RAM made to behave like a physical disk yet functioning with the spe

Re: Will I see a big speed difference between 64GB and 128GB RAM on PC?

2 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

What mostly affects I/O speed is memory bandwidth, which in turn depends on ECC, configured timings, frequency and the motherboard design in general. Simply increasing the RAM size from 64 GB to 128 GB is unlikely to affect the speed in any way.

Re: RAM disk disappeared after Windows 10 October update

2 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

Numerous news outlets reported that Windows 10 1809 October update wiped their entire folders with files. I guess you can consider yourself lucky that only the RAM disk was gone I am not sure what exactly is gone in your case: the software itself or the RAM disk drive, but in either case I recommend installing or updating to the latest version and then re-creating the RAM disk.

Re: Using column values in RegEx

3 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

I have checked and indeed found that when a script referred to other script-based columns, their value would be empty. This is essentially a bug. We have fixed this in the latest builds, but there is a couple of important points to consider: The latest builds increase the maximum simultaneous number of dynamic columns of the same type from 10 to 50. The /maxcols switch has been removed. While t

Re: Using column values in RegEx

3 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

I don't think it's a matter of delay: the script is executed after all other columns are finalised. Unless the port column is another script column, in which case it may not be executed in the expected order. You can check whether the port is there by executing the following and see what gets printed: port = "Gi1/0/" & Input.Column("port" Output.Write port Also, yo

Re: Feature request: Device list sorting - Added

UPDATE: We have just added the Up and Down commands (menu items and shortcuts). You are welcome to download the latest builds that include this new functionality. It is probably easier to use Ctrl+U and Ctrl+D rather than the menu items for moving the lines, but there is a choice to use whichever you prefer. Regarding grouping, that's a little more complicated but we'll add it later as

Re: Layout export for column reorganization

3 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

This issue stems from a poor design choice to create a limited number of columns (10 of each type by default) and keeping their associated data, e.g. regex, colours, etc bound to column indices. This works okay as long as the number stays the same, say column #50 always stays column #50: even if you drag it around, its position changes, but its index stays. However if extra columns are added a

Re: Virtual columns and Remote scripting

3 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

When I suggested MSXML2.DOMDocument I wasn't sure whether you are dealing with with a XML or HTML response. It's really only suitable for XML, but HTML can be retrieved with MSXML2.XMLHTTP instead and parsed with VBScript's regex engine. This example equivalent to the sample PowerLogic EGX 100 S/N. It basically gets HTML from the specified URL and applies the same regex to extract the data.

Re: Virtual columns and Remote scripting

Perhaps you could solely use Remote Scripting to run something like this?

Re: Virtual columns and Remote scripting

3 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

I am afraid in the current implementation Virtual Columns can't be used in Remote Scripting. Since Virtual Columns depend on data in other columns, they are calculated after all other columns, including Remote Scripting. Otherwise it could create interdependencies that can't be resolved, i.e. a Virtual Column refers to a Remote Scripting column and vice versa.

Re: Feature suggestion: friendly name mapping for additional IPs

Actually there isn't any problem with including virtual columns. Please try the latest builds which should allow you to select virtual columns.

Added in the latest preliminary build. Now you can choose almost any set of columns to associate friendly names with. Just a couple of things worth mentioning: It was a non-trivial change that affected a lot of code. Please report any bugs you find. Mapping column values to friendly names is done before applying regular expressions. In other words, regular expressions will have no effect on

Re: Data is not collected data if the user is logged off

3 months ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

That's basically how NetWorx was designed. It runs as a regular application when a user logs on. Otherwise it does not run, i.e. it is not a service. If you are looking for monitoring server bandwidth, a different product called Bandwidth Manager may be more suitable. It runs as a service, allows you to define a variety of monitoring rules, and if necessary configure bandwidth caps and quotas.

Re: VBScript for returning the last reboot time

This script obviously connects to the a computer's WMI subsystem and parses an output of the following expression: SELECT LastBootUpTime FROM Win32_OperatingSystem Normally that returns a string like this in the yyyymmddHHMMSS.mmmmmmsUUU format (see CIM_DATETIME description): 20190104140000.111597+600 So to figure out why the script fails at a specific machine, run the above WMI query again

Re: Regex replacement support

The latest release didn't support regex replacement, but you are making a good point here. We've just added replacement expression support in version 7.1.9 which can be downloaded from the Network Scanner home page. For your particular task, use this as the regular expression: ([0-9A-F]{2}).? and this as the replacement expression: \1 Sample output:

Re: Syncing data between multiple hard drives

We investigated the issue, and there seems to have been a change in the development environment used to build NetWorx. Older development environment that produced version 5.5.5 was okay, but the newer environment that produced the current version changed the way things work. We have fixed the issue, and will include the fix in the next update of NetWorx.
