Ping issues?

Postby Ger-h on Fri Sep 26, 2014 7:11 pm

Is anyone outside the uk having higher ping's to the uk between 18:00 bst to 22:00?. Over the last two weeks my ping's to ukcs has been a lot higher between these times is anyone else getting this problem?.

Have you tried tracert?

Look for the high ping then Google the address. Probably a relay in Ireland.

My broadband monitor is showing a marginal increase in latency for me at that time pretty much every day. Varying degrees of severity, mostly only affecting streaming for me though
This is my sandvich. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My sandvich is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my sandvich is useless. Without my sandvich, I am useless. I must eat my sandvich true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before lunch I swear this creed: my sandvich and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but sandvich. Om nom.

There's a data centre in France that handles a lot of UK ISP traffic which decides to shit itself every now and then so that's probably why France is an issue :P

Yup. Occasionally LINX (London Internet Exchange) decides to throw a paddy, which can cause regional disruptions. It does seem odd that you are having a consistent problem though.

Over the weekend seems to be fine again. No 70 ping's to ukcs/other uk servers hopefully this will be the end of it :)
