Fiddler Traffic Tool Points To LAN Issue

February 21, 2015

So I still have the problem with flaky response from the bagels server on this LAN. I downloaded the Fiddler web traffic tool and looked at the details of the session. Fiddler inserts itself as a proxy between your browser and the server so you can see and time the traffic. The most striking thing I see is that fiddler reports an extremely long TCP/IP connect time 3-5 seconds is common. I was able to match up one fiddler-tracked transaction with the debug log of the server and the times match exactly. It’s just taking an unreasonable length of time for the router to make the connection.

Once in a while the stall happens on the return trip and fiddler gives up on the connection

Fiddler also points to a flaw in my http where I don’t include “content length” in my http header (mostly because it’s variable and it would be difficult to track). I will try the simple server where the data length is fixed and see if it’s any different.

Frankly though, I think the problem is just this router/lan.

Update: I tried running the server direct connected to the pc as and it’s flawless which supports my theory. I tried running the simplest server through the LAN and it failed much less frequently but still failed. I think I just have to wait til i’m home with a router I know better and trouble shoot some more.
