Does lowering Display FPS or Waterfall Rate Reduce Network Bandwidth?
Remote SmartSDR operations is coming soon to a radio near you :-) , therefore, understanding how to best utilize available bandwidth so that one can maintain optimized audio seems to be a reasonable concern.
I understand that in most cases LAN based remote operations the 6000 series won't come anywhere near exceeding available bandwidth. This will not necessarily be true with WAN Remote Ops when v2.x is released next year. With this in mind I have the following questions:
Will reducing the Frames Per Second (FPS) Rate and/or the Waterfall Rate on SmartSDR cause the 6000 to throttle the number display packets created and sent across the network or does this only change how the client reacts to a constant number of display packets sent by the 6000?
Will changing the SmartSDR setting for the display "AVG" or "Weighted Average" affect the number of packets transmitted by the 6000?
Having this knowledge will help to develop tactics on how to best accommodate low bandwidth conditions while maintaining optimized receive and transmit audio.
Flex Community...please reply ONLY if you have either measured empirical evidence or have direct knowledge of how SmartSDR/Flex 6000 is programmed to work. I would really like this thread to be based on fact and not feelings or assumptions.
Thanks in advanced to all.
