Re: Ping spikes

Re: Ping spikes

Was anything running when you were doing those tests though? Does the top right bar chart show min/max/avg latency for each hop?
The only reason I say it looks your end is that the max latency (if that is what the bar chart shows) seems to be high on your first hop.

Re: Ping spikes

Hi Andy i see what you mean , but i was just surfing at the times Smiley
on first , highest was hop 4 117
next was hop 9 104
then hop 2 80
ok they may not be too high But its the recurring  frequency that causes problems for me

Re: Ping spikes

It's a strange one as the bottom bar chart looks to show some kind of similarities with the ping spikes.
It's ok to have high pings on certain hops as long as the destination hop is at a normal level (which I guess should be something like 10-15ms for bbc.co.uk for you).

Re: Ping spikes

The bottom bar chart is weird in that the pattern looks very similar - 5 ping spikes, first one highest then gradually reducing.
Can you try the pathping bbc.co.uk command from the cmd prompt?
