Network Skip Pinging Every 3 minutes periodically for 2 sec

vn flag

I have an application runs in UP Board | UP-CHT01, which will do an operation and send the data to NATS Messaging Server. ( Which is running on another PC i.e, not in the same board)

While testing the application we found, its failing to send message for 2-3 second every 3 minute periodically.

After some debugging I figured, may be its a network problem instead of application.

So I stopped the application and I tried pinging nats server every second separately, and see, if any disconnection happens.

Simple ping - ping -O <ipAddress>

Same things happening, every 3 minutes - ping skips given below, I skipped some ping logs which are not needed

I did pinging, same things happen.

Any body can explain, what could be the possible reason for this. Anything related to router or switches.

If the problem is with that host alone then that host is at fault. Any which way, you have provided near zero information to provide an answer.

I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
