TimeoutExceptions and stack configuration and/or loading?

Hi,

 

Is it possible that "fat" stacks with multiple masters and loads of bricklets driven by an aggressively *polling* program can be the cause of TimeoutExceptions?

 

I managed to get my Wifi signal strength to -60dB, and I still get way too many timeouts:

The main new thing which I changed was hook up my LCD20x4.. and I'm updating the whole screen at 1Hz.. am I overloading the Master Brick with all the polling and LCD stuff?

By "aggressively polling" I mean I'm polling all the bricklets in my stack every second, and updating the LCD to reflect the new values. I know 1Hz is peanuts, but I don;t know how you guys implemented your onboard software, so...

 

I've just written a much more sophisticated exception logging mechanism which will help me analyse the TimeoutException sources more easily. So far, it looks as if the Distance IR bricklet is the source of 98% of the exceptions.. and that just doesn;t make sense. What's so special about it? Maybe we're on to something  :o
