Latency

October 25, 2007

I did a tracert in Windows to slicehost here is what I found about the route it has taken


Internal routers of office network
ISP in Hong Kong
Hong Kong IX, I think but not sure
Net Jersey, Morristown
Florida, Lake Mary
Maryland, Silver Spring
Massachusetts, Boston
Illinois, Chicago
Missouri, St Louis

Pinging the site I got 287-310 ms. Pinging BudgetDedicated I got 379-398 ms.

Surprisingly although BudgetDedicated is in Europe the trip goes first to the same location after leaving Hong Kong at la2ca.ip.att.net then it traveled to other places like


Los Angeles
San Jose
New York
London
Amsterdam

All the nodes are managed by Level3 by the way.

Do I want round the world trip every time I log into my server?
