Setting session parameters - Resilience
This article is part of the Source-Connect Pro and Pro X 3.9 User Guide
Resilience is a system’s ability to recover from a fault. Essentially, the resilience setting adjusts the network redundancy and parity. As resilience goes higher, more packets can be lost without retransmitting them. For example:
- Using 1 means that, if around 1 in 10 packets are lost, the data can be re-derived without retransmitting.
- Using 4 would, in theory, mean that every other packet could be lost and the data would still be available without retransmitting.
In general a resilience setting of ‘1’ should be used. Higher resilience settings than ‘1’ are generally more effective over very high speed connections.
A resilience setting of ‘0’ is not recommended unless you are on the same LAN or you have a dedicated network with no other traffic interference.
