Hi Blair,

Do you think it'd be a good idea to decrease the ping interval? Maybe to 200 milliseconds?

  Kind regards,

  By default, Enet sends (reliable) ping packets every 500ms, if no other reliable traffic was sent in that interval. If you're sending reliable packets 30 times per second instead of 2 times, it's possible Enet is deriving a more accurate average round trip time.

    Hi Lee and others,

    I am having some minor issues with ENet.

    First, I'm trying to get the average up and downstream for each peer by using the appropriate data fields in the peer structure but it always returns 0 for some reason. The same seems to be true with the host structure as well.

    Second, when I look at the average round trip time for a peer, this value is only correct if I send out a few reliable packets. on localhost, for instance, I ran a test where I sent 30 unreliable packets every second. I poll the network every 5 milliseconds, but got an average round trip of 44 milliseconds. When I changed it to reliable packets, however, I got an average of 12 which seems much more reasonable. Is this intended behavior?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Kind regards,

    Philip Bennefall
