@OmegaHeron Thanks for the find there, when interface window is not frontmost, we drop to a 16FPS update rate, and no doubt that is part of the disconnect problem. Send me your findings there and I will try and repro here as well.
@OmegaHeron What server are you connected to when you see these disconnects happening? Yours?
and are you running a windows client or mac?
or linux?

@PhilipRosedale it happens on stack running with OS X at co-location center, linux running on local LAN and linux running on cloud droplets. Watching the stack (server side) I only see the disconnect of my client - it seems invariant over stack on OX X or Linux and on the Interface side. I only run interface on windows (7 64 bit) so there's no ambiguity there.

@OmegaHeron How often do you see the disconnects? How many seconds are between them?

@PhilipRosedale Initially it's about 10 seconds - then I see a flurry of can't send packet messages - then loss of sync - then disconnect - reconnect - repeat. If I bring Interface back to active window it usually immediately gives unreasonable packet #, resynchs and carries on.
I'm setting up network tracing now as something else seems odd - when interface is doing this it absolutely kills my network - as if it's flooding it, music stops - can't load web pages etc. Soon as I return to interface it all clears. Still holding out it could be something on my end - thus more tracing.

@PhilipRosedale An interesting find - running wiresharck - only looking at UDP I see 0 packets per second. Load interface, it's active window - PPS stabilies around 250-300 (about 2x what's indicated in Interface stats). Minimize interface, move to something else or just move to something else leaving Interface maximized on 2nd monitor, PPS rate remains same then suddenly spike to 800+ per second followed by the disconnect.

@omegaHeron... that's really helpful. Those 800PPS packets, can you tell me anything about them? Are they inbound or outbound and to what assignment client / server are they headed? You can look at the AC/Domain logs in stack manager to see what ports the various servers are bound to.

@PhilipRosedale will load the wireshark capture and attempt to sort them out by ports and connect to AC ports - will take a bit. :)
they're cerainly mostly outbound Interface -> AC/DS machine.

Still learning how to create reports from wireshark, but, for the session where I mostly ran with it showing the high PPS rates, here's a quick break down of traffic from Interface to AC. 42.1% of packets direct to AV Mixer, 14.7% sound, .2% Entities, 4.3% Metavoxels, .2% Voxels.
Since that's just traffic from Interface machine to AC/DS machine it doesn't add up to 100% of captured packets.

Looking at packet stats for Interface talking to AV Mixer... IFace sent 35967 packets to AC, AC sent 9545. Bytes Interface to AC = 5,027,862, AC to Interface = 729326. That seems... odd.
