XSwiftBus/SimConnect traffic analyzed

swift XPlane via P2P 127.0.0.1:45001

  • setting

  • traffic not connected to network between XPlane/XSwiftBus

image

  • you can see that swift sends and XPlane receives and vice versa
  • that is about 20kByte traffic in idle mode
  • swift/XPlane talk via the loopback adaptor

image

swift XPlane via session bus

  • this starts the DBus daemon
  • As you can see swift now talks to the Daemon and the daemon talks to XPlane actually doubling the loopback traffic (no network)

image

  • with VATSIM connected I can see something around 40kByte/s

image

  • again all loopback traffic

image

SimConnect via TCP/IP

  • swift connecting to P3D via remote TCP/IP simConnect
  • traffic during connecting phase of 20 aircraft, ending up with around 1.1 Mbit/s
