QoS Sensors Sending Requests Too Often



Take a look at the following screenshot. http://howies.com/tmp/QoS%20Spam.bmp

You'll see that the QOS sensor is sending out two requests every 60 seconds instead of 1.

I changed the interval from 60 to 180 and it's still doing it on some QoS sensors.

Does anyone have any idea why this is happening and how to fix it?

Packets arrive too late and are considered part of a new packet set although they belong to a previous one. This will be fixed in version 8.

At the time being, try reducing the size of packets or the number of packets until the release of version 8, tentatively set for Q3, 2010.
