Data usage?

I don't know the exact figure. I can only tell you that connected clients will send ping packets to the server (and the server sends them back) every (I think) 5 seconds. Each ping packet should only be a hand full of bytes big though. Other than that there should be no traffic.

 

You can measure this data traffic easily though by connecting to a server with a local client and then simply monitoring that client's network usage with a tool of your choice.

Its possible to tweak that Server side to a higher Value?

 

I am intend to buy that Device: https://hytera-europe.com/products/pnc380

Sadly Radio with UHF DMR cost way to much for me now.

What do you mean? The ping-rate? That is hard-coded and can't be increased (I also fail to see why this would be useful)

Ah then I misunderstood your intent. You want to increase the ping interval - I thought you wanted to increase the amount of pings sent.

But yeah as I said: This is a fixed property that you'd have to manually change in the source code and then run a custom build of the server and the client.

No I don't think that will happen. Increasing the ping interval will also increase the time until the client realizes that it can't reach the server anymore (and is thus no longer connected to it). I don't think it would be good UX to increase this time...

If you are really concerned about your phone's lifespan I suggest not staying connected to Mumble while not needing it.

 

And for me this does not justify making the UX for every other device worse.
