Network Test Saturday, October 30th

As an AREDN network grows in size and/or complexity, it will eventually encounter a packet storm that would pretty much cripple its traffic-carrying capabilities until the storm fades out, which could be hours.  (The writers of the OLSR mobile routing protocol probably never envisioned it having to handle networks of the size amateurs are creating.)  This is significantly limiting the growth and performance of our networks.

Recently released nightly build 571 provides a substantial amount of resistance to these storms.  As a test of the network's robustness (or not) Saturday October 30th at 9 a.m. local we'll attempt to link as many AREDN networks together as possible.  

We did a 'test test' earlier in the week on the West Coast when the Southern California and Bay area networks were linked.  Node counts got up to a bit over 800 and few reports were received, so we're ready for Saturday!

Test preparation

Prior to Saturday's test, it's recommended that in order to protect your node(s) that you upgrade them to the latest nightly build (599 as of this writing).  This is especially important on nodes that pass data through (as opposed to being an end-point on a network).  

Also prior to Saturday, establish some baseline performance measurements on your network.  Suggestions are:

  • Quality of VOIP phone calls
  • iperf throughput...

Meshoween is in a week!

Folks, next Saturday is Meshoween, where nasty packet storms strike terror into the most experienced ham network user :-)

Seriously, we'll be linking up big and small networks to see how our ham radio networks handle huge routing table broadcasts.

If you haven't yet updated your node(s) to nightly build 571 (or later), please seriously consider doing so.  It will  help your node fight off any scary packet storms!

Monitoring instructions will be promulgated a day or two prior to Meshoween.

It's Linktober!  "Meshoween" is coming :-)


We've found that as networks grow both in node count and complexity, it's almost inevitable that they'll suffer from a packet storm (or storms) eventually.

Now that the patch for mitigating those network packet storms has been rolled into an AREDN nightly build, we've decided that it's time to stress-test our network.  On October 30th (starting at say, 9 a.m. local time) we'll attempt to link as many networks together to see how the network behaves.  If you have a long-haul tunnel that you can bring up, feel free to do so.

HOWEVER, if you decide to participate in the test, or think you might be on a network that gets linked in, it's highly recommended that you update your node(s) to nightly build 571 or later to "inoculate" them against a possible incoming network storm.

Before October 30th, we'll provide a reminder and instructions on what to monitor during the test.
Thanks in advance for your consideration!  Please pass this along to your AREDN network neighbors.

AREDN Conference 


The AREDN team decided to revisit the idea of an AREDN Conference in the Spring of 2022. There are currently a lot of tasks in progress with few of them far along enough to be interesting topics for a presentation.

19.07 Release Status Update

The upcoming release of many new devices, bug fixes, and capabilities still has a few issues being worked out:

1) The OpenWRT release that AREDN is based on, recently published another release candidate rc2, and there is a rc3 in the pipeline. This means we are still days/weeks away to see the OpenWRT official release.
2) There are 2 identified issues so far on Rocket M5 XW and Nanostation M5 XW devices still being worked.
3) Many models do not yet have any know testing to confirm all is working.

How can you help?   Check the status here:

Call for Code 2019 Global Winner Announced

Prometeo was announced the Call for Code 2019 Global Winner on Saturday, October 12, 2019 at the award ceremony held in New York City. After intense judging from IBM, the David Clark Cause, the United Nations Human Rights Office, the American Red Cross, and other subject matter experts in the first round, the eminent judges ranked the five finalist teams and selected Prometeo as the winning solution.

Prometeo not only wins the 200,000 USD grand prize, but open source project support from The Linux Foundation, meetings with investors and mentors, and solution implementation support through IBM's Code and Response initiative. The team also won the People's Choice award on October 4, where thousands of voters chose Prometeo as their favorite solution.

In his 33-year career as a firefighter, Joan Herrera has battled thousands of wildland fires and suffered the headaches and breathing problems that...
