Blink rate
« on: November 28, 2016, 06:27:46 pm »
I note that the blink rate is very slow making it difficult to distinguish a slowly blinking status light on a crowded, busy switch.  A faster or even variable blink rate would make this feature more useful.

I agree. A variable blink rate would be an improvement. Maybe even a pattern: long blink, four fast blinks, repeat. Something like that might stand out more.

+1 to variable or faster blinking. With v26 it blinks in a range of 3 till 7 seconds on my router. With this speed it is hard to find a cable in a patchroom.

Was a big discussion about this before the forum was wiped, basically the answer was 'this is how it works, this is how it has to work'.

as evilgenius wrote before, this is how it works and we can't change so much about it. The blink rate depends on how fast the link establishment is. Which depends on the switch and cable length, also switches decide on their own how they blink the LED. We can't make blink patterns. What you could try in these cases is set the blinker to 10 or 100, because most switches show that with a different color.
