This version gives you the IP address of the gateway which you may find more useful http://users.plus.net/@gateway_custom?debug-ip=yes

Well every gateway has multiple physical machines each with their own IP address so knowing which machine by the IP address can help highlight performance issues.
You only need to note the IP address with the gateway name in it, it's normally on the 2nd to last line given. Worth reporting it if you are experiencing a slow down as has been done in the Further Capacity Issues thread.
