Topic # 106859 1-Aug-2012 17:23 Send private message

Hi,

I've been with Fyx since launch and often play WoW. With very few exceptions, my latency to Bronzebeard (12.129.223.32) has consistently been 156 or 157 ms. However, for about the past week or so I haven't seen it that low; it's usually in the 180s and has often jumped up over 200.

I've pinged a few local servers and everything looks normal there, and my guild isn't reporting higher than usual pings (although most of them are in Canada).

While 180 certainly isn't bad, it just makes me wonder whether something is broken since it's consistently been in the 150s since Fyx began. Here's a traceroute:

Does anything in particular look strange there?

Thanks :)

EDIT: I should also point out that I've tried it first thing in the morning (approx 7:30) and still get the higher-than-usual latency so it's unlikely to be peak time congestion at Maxnet's end.

Wonder if you're seeing the effects of asymmetric routing, can you get someone to trace back to you from there?

Routes change all the time and sometimes little can be done to influence it. You'll probably find though that another part of the internet that you never use has inversely gotten faster..

I'm trying to get a friend in the States to trace back here but he's not having much luck (apparently his ISP has broken something). He did find this tool though, which he has used to trace back to my IP address. It appears that the return path, at least using that tool, is going via Australia... unless those Vocus nodes are in NZ?
