Anyone noticing Google services, e.g. search and gmail a bit slow on Spark today? 

 

Usually google services are delivered out of Australia, or did, however today today seems to be coming from USA with a bit of packet loss

 

Using Spark DNS:

 

--- www.google.co.nz ping statistics ---
97 packets transmitted, 80 packets received, 17.5% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 199.227/221.543/926.836/96.553 ms

 

--- googlemail.l.google.com ping statistics ---
63 packets transmitted, 52 packets received, 17.5% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 168.468/169.886/199.307/4.154 ms

 

Changing to Google DNS and browsing speeds and pings are better:

 

--- www.google.co.nz ping statistics ---
48 packets transmitted, 48 packets received, 0.0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 14.982/15.800/18.221/0.557 ms

 

--- googlemail.l.google.com ping statistics ---
39 packets transmitted, 39 packets received, 0.0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 39.357/39.882/40.979/0.391 ms

I just tried youtube and see the same thing with the thumbnails, they take ages to load.

 

@Talkiet any idea?

 

Spark DNS:

 

 

Google DNS:

What do traceroutes to those hosts look like?

 

 

Which hops show packet loss?

The packet loss seems to have subsided so the page loading isn't as bad anymore

I'm out and about at the moment but please pm me your email addresses... I have a troubleshooting process from Google I would like anyone experiencing the issue to complete please. I think there's something slightly off and Google need more info to chase down.

Cheers N

Had this issue first thing this morning but seems to be normal again now. Sorry I don't understand all the DNS/Tracert etc bit ... only lag yes/no buffering yes/no :)





Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

Yeah, it came right not long after I posted the thread - typical ^_^

 

I've got troubleshooting steps from @Talkiet to run through if it happens again
