I try not to complain too much, but streaming updates have been very unreliable lately as others have mentioned.

This is the 5th or 6th time since Christmas that I've gone 36 consecutive hours or more without streaming updates. Included in that was a 3 day stretch of zero streaming updates. I'm approaching 42 straight hours right now without streaming updates, but I can see from other comments above that some people are getting them. Regular VPS updates occur without issue. Before somebody says it must be my PC, please note that there are others in my area experiencing the same problems using different ISP's suggesting it is an Avast problem. I check this forum frequently on this issue, and judging from the comments people leave on their location, Europe seems to have much less of these problems that we do in the US. I'm in the Midwestern part of the US.

Somebody with Avast needs to address this situation and let us know what is being done to correct it. You can't sell me a product featuring streaming updates and then fail to provide it.

Thanks.

@ DavidR

I've now gotten some streaming updates.  I've been noticing in the past week or two, even when the streaming updates seemed quite reliable, that there seemed to be gaps in the former regular pattern.  What I mean is the xxxxxxxxxxx00 to xxxxxxxxxxx09 followed by xxxxxxxxxxx0a to xxxxxxxxxxx0f, and then xxxxxxxxxxx10 to xxxxxxxxxxx19 followed by xxxxxxxxxxx1a to xxxxxxxxxxx1f, etc. was fairly consistent over time.  Now, there are usually gaps in this sequence of streaming updates.  I see the same gaps in your picture.

I'm wondering if these missing updates are the result of recalled streaming submissions (possibly due to false positive) or server error.

Streaming updates started about 1/2 hour ago for the first time since Monday P.M. Confirmed with another user in local area same approximate streaming update start time after two days of nothing.

What is the issue with our potion of the U.S. not receiving reliable streamed updates?

It isn't something that I get overly concerned about, I don't actively monitor them.

Two days of zero streaming updates (again).

Does anybody from Avast read these comments? Perhaps they don't care to discuss in an open forum this ongoing problem? Maybe too much time and assets being spent developing a new product and not enough maintaining what they have?
