EDIS HK test server network issues -- ping spikes and dropping packets
Hi, I would like to check if this is normal or just some kind of fluke with the test server
From Shanghai on China Telecom I am getting between 4-8% packet loss to the test server in HK, while I get around 1% to hk.vr.org. Also pinging from my box at VR.org I found some spikes up to 206ms from a regular ping of around 2 ms. Is the test box just overloaded or is this what to expect from the VPS in normal operation? I'd like to switch but I'd rather spend the money if i can avoid spikes and packet loss. Aside from this I've noticed that the routing through pacnet is looking really good now from the looking glass, but I need reliability too..
