Ive been using NoMachine quite a lot anything from a short bus ride away to literally across the Atlantic (Norway to Guatemala), it works no problem there, in fact it works way better then expected its amazing! 🙂
One thing that I’m really missing as the “admin” of the system is the ability see if any lag/connection problems is due to the network im general or if its just NoMachine. Usually i rely on the ping (to my domain) to estimate to quality of the connection at a quick glance, so I would like to make a feature request, to see those kind of info on the “connection tab” of the menu.
Thanks for your hard work that allows me to be located 9200km from my computer while working as usual.

Hi, wow, that’s quite a distance 🙂
This could indeed be useful but of course it depends on whether the target machines respond to the ping or not. We keep track of all network data that an application like NoMachine can ever track, and so it would be a matter of how to make this data more “accessible” to the user and easier to read, and evaluating where and how to make it accessible without interfering with the design of the user-interface. These statistics, however, are at the application level (i.e what NoMachine sends and retrieves).
NoMachine proxy keeps track of the time of round trips, statistics of lost UDP frames, retransmissions, amount of key-frames requested, congestion and bitrate values calculated by the proxy and reported in proxy callbacks etc etc. The actual data about the network and a real estimate of the performance of the network can only be retrieved by analysing the OS kernel and the networking HW (network card, TCP/IP stack of the OS, traversed routers and so on).
What there is available to you already, which sysadmin and network experts will appreciate, is the Statistics section of the NoMachine connection. Please consult this article which gives guidelines on how to interpret this data: https://www.nomachine.com/AR02N00875 (we’re in the process of updating it btw)-
What you should concentrate on is the ‘link’ section which presents the information you would probably be more interested in. The X Protocol section can be ignored 🙂January 12, 2021 at 17:25 #31227GatosParticipant
Heio Britgirl, thanks for the answer.
I’ll take a look at those statistic and see what I can get out of it, but NoMachine in it self works really well especially considering the distance Im trying to push on the type of network we are using vs what we are expecting out of it 🙂👍
I’ve include a litte road map of the distance just for fun because I’m still amazed it doesn’t feel like a slide show all the time 🤯

The red line would indicate that you are on a boat? 😀
