Version 3.30 (3.39.4) Banging the Network Hard
December 9, 2014
9:00 pm

I just installed the new version this week. I'm running Maverick. As soon as the app is opened all the activity lights for all ports on my router and switch flash continuously at about two Hertz. Nothing I do with settings seems to affect this.

Any suggestions?

We have introduced a number of new features in the 3.3x builds that improve device detection, but also increase the number of individual network actions that take place. In version 3.31 and later, we have added the ability to turn off those features individually.

To reduce network activity, start by disabling the Sleep Proxy support and possibly also DNS resolution; both can be quite onerous on larger networks.

You can reach those settings from the debug window (Help -> Show Debug Window). Try unchecking ZZZ and DNS, for starters.
