I have this affect especially on Saturdays/Sundays (especially with good weather conditions) with all that recreation flights. Start somewhere in the morning and goes until the afternoon. Most of these are reported on my receiver as MLAT.
much less during weekdays.
Development last eight hours:
Looks like the load balancing kicked in fully around 15:20z as that’s when my synchronised receivers dropped from over 1000 to around 600. It had been varying between 600 and 1000 since 12:00z but stabilised from around 15:20z onwards.
I’ve not seen any loss of sync since then, thank you @obj
Sounds good. The switching between 600 and 1000 would have been when the original region was overloaded, but you were also connected to the new region which was OK (previously, this would have dropped to “not synchronized”, rather than 600). The permanent drop at ~1520Z was when the old region was finally turned off after everything had migrated to the new regions.
There’s now a similar migration in progress for some other regions which were also approaching capacity.
According to my notes, the last rebalancing was over 3 years ago, at least I don’t have to do this often
