Recently, I got kind of a lot lag spikes while using some internet programs at the same time. Now since I'd consider my connection speed as pretty good (10mbit up/100mbit down) and the problems are really just spikes and not a constant high ping, I wonder what causes this problem.
They usually only occur when I use the following programs at the same time:
- x-split broadcaster (streaming program, free version)
- Skype (not always in a conversation)
- Chrome with youtube/facebook
- League of Legends (Here I notice the spikes)
The spikes also don't necessarily occur when the next youtube video in the playlist is loaded. So could this be some kind of port issue? Or just the Riot servers (EUW is well known for its stable connection...)
When skyping I also usually don't get disconnected. Everything except LoL works pretty fine.
