QOS Discord high priority traffic

Has Discord been added to the DUMAOS Classified Games list because now when I lauch Discord app the HIGH PRIORTY TRAFFIC DETTECTED  light is on. What happerens if I want to play battlefiled V and use discord at the same time does this mean it is priortizing both now ?

Re: QOS Discord high priority traffic

Hi Mac - it hasn't been added, no. Are you using Discord on your PC? Or have you added any manual rules to Traffic Prioritization?

I am useing Discord on a PC and no manual rules have been added Traffic Prioritization. As soon as I launch Discord it triggors Traffic Prioritization light.

Re: QOS Discord high priority traffic

My device is a computer but for some reason I have it set as a console/xbox. If I change it back to computer then the discord and the priorty light disapears. Only problem is when I have my pc set as device computer dumaos does not deteact any traffic at all. And the geo filter does not do its thing either.

Re: QOS Discord high priority traffic

Set to a computer then on Traffic Prioritization use the Games Console service. If Discord's ports are within that range it may prioritize them but as it won't be a high bandwidth application it won't cause issues and would prioritize both game and console. You could then try using the Battlefield or Call of Duty service on the Geo-Filter for your game or stick with the device as a console and allow it to prioritize discord and your game at once.

Re: QOS Discord high priority traffic

Only way I can get it to work is to not have the PC to be seen by the DUMAOS as an xbox or console. Games now seems to be detected so far.

Re: QOS Discord high priority traffic

The QOS High Priorty Traffic Detected has stoped working for me now. The only way I can get it to work is to have my computer set as device "console" This is no good for me because when I have discord open which is most of the time when I use my PC then Traffic Prioritization comes on.  This is not a High Priorty and this affects my downloads when not gaming.The anti bufferbloat should only  be coming on when it is detecting games not apps like discord. Please Netduma this Needs fixing.

 

Problem 1 .  Device Computer bufferbloat not working / detecting games

Problem 2.   Discord triggering bufferbloat when device set to console

Problem 3.   Computer should be seen as a gameing PC .

Re: QOS Discord high priority traffic

So you have Anti-Bufferbloat on When High Priority Traffic detected? It shouldn't really affect your download speeds too much, how much are they going down by? As I mentioned in the previous post Discord is likely using ports in the range, its also a gaming application so would be prioritized.

Re: QOS Discord high priority traffic

I have it set to "When High Priority Traffic Dettected"  but this only works when set up as a console

 

More to the point then why is it when I have my pc set up as computer the Anti bufferbloat does not detect games like Battlefild V or black ops 4  detect discord only game it does detect is pupg.

 

You see this was all working before nothing changed my end it was all set up and left it. What has changed in the netduma cloud. 

 

Why is it that I have to have my pc set up as a console in order for it to detect traffic.

Re: QOS Discord high priority traffic

It's nothing on your/our end that has changed. Updates on the game have likely meant our classification needs to be updated so that it's detected when set as a PC. I'll forward to our team to take a look.

Re: QOS Discord high priority traffic

Please do!  It took me forever to realize that I need to set my PC to 'Console' to use the Geo-Filter settings.  However now I can't use a VPN on my PC because HybridVPN doesn't work on consoles (my pc shows up as greyed-out when I want to choose 'Do not VPN these services' but every other non-console device works perfectly fine.

Re: QOS Discord high priority traffic

When it was working with my pc set as computer in the device manager it was detecting almost all games I play and it was not bufferbloating discord either it was only when I had to set my pc as a console because for what ever reason PC mode is not working at the moment.

 

One other thing that has changed for me is that in the Geo-Filter I have to add my computer and choose a profile and choose one of the games that are set up in the profiles. Before I could just add my pc and was able to choose from filtering or spectating mode.  

 

We need a gameing PC MODE with netduma consoles seeem to be getting priority

Re: QOS Discord high priority traffic

Discord for me sounds raspy and nasty aswell.  Can you add some form of blanket 'whitelist' rule to Geo-Filter so Discord can work again?  Or I guess techincally it would be fixed if I could use the PC settings of dumaos instead of console.

Re: QOS Discord high priority traffic

@BuuBot, that means your whole device will be VPN'd so it still works.
@usermac, if it was a PC you will have always had to select a service on the Geo-Filter, only if its a console you don't have to choose. It's a good suggestion, we'll likely implement it.
@BuuBot, is Discord being blocked by the Geo-Filter? In that case you can just allow it yourself through the ping panel

Re: QOS Discord high priority traffic

New problems with this High Priority traffic,
 Now the high priority traffic gets stuck even if I close all applications the things still stays on. The only way to turn this off is to do a factory reset. I can no longer use my PC in console mode because the traffic priority will get stuck even if I switch the PC off it still limits the bandwidth.
 
Second issue the Duma games does not detect online game's for me if I am using in PC mode the games tested while connected to online servers in game
Battlefield
Call of duty black ops 4
Player Unknown Battlegrounds
Apex Legends
 
These are some of the most popular games out on PC This makes me question what is the DUMA OS CLASSIFIED GAMES actually doing for us PC gamers. So far it is doing nothing unless you set you PC up to look like its a console. 

Not sure what else to do other than not bother useing the thing untill something gets fixed 😞

Re: QOS Discord high priority traffic

Actually I am going to take PUBG off the list of games this is working and this is with the Device seen as a PC.
Black OPS 4 does not work but strangely the Blizzard app triggers the priority and then switches off when in game and that includes being online.
I also have a idea could some of the DumaOS Classified Games be Dissocialised to give us a clue on what PC game are compatible.
Netduma says it covers all console game and most PC GAMES but only one game works for me so far and thats PUBG.

 

Smiley LOL

Re: QOS Discord high priority traffic

The Traffic Prioritization light can take a little bit of time to disable properly, usually no longer than 30s-1min, how long were you waiting and was high priority packets updating while it was still on?

For PC games we use Deep Packet Inspection, this is different from how we detect consoles. So any PC game updates can cause it to become outdated so thank you for bringing our attention to it and I'll pass it on to our team to retest. In terms of Apex Legends as it's very new we're still working on compatibility with the game.
