Inconsistent Lag
« on: March 19, 2020, 10:06:40 PM »
I'm getting frequent and significant lag spikes.  Bad enough I sometimes only turn part way around or am rubber banded somewhere finding I didn't make a jump.

Tracert is ugly. netgraph looks like an uncut lawn.

I've shutdown every internet using device except the gaming machine.  I'm on an upgraded cable connection 100+mbs/20mbs in the southwest.  I don't think the problem is on my side.

I'm willing to help pay, maybe we could pool cash in some periodic manner.

Advice?  Options?
Appreciated,
[BTF]Defiant!

I believe others have expressed interest in pitching in for a server upgrade/improvement as well. I can't commit to that right now, but I know Defiant isn't the only one that has expressed interest in such a thing.

It's not the server.

My netgraph is a flat green line, consistently:



And I'm 1000 miles from the datacenter.

So, it's got to be a particular route to the server that's clogged.

I'll need your traceroutes. And ideally screenshots of your netgraphs as well.

Accumulating data points on the route being affected is important, so I can submit a trouble ticket with concrete examples.

Otherwise, it's just me saying "yeah everything's fine for me but I'm hearing other folks are having issues."

Nothing has stood out as far as connection issues for me. Netgraph is smooth, without any red lines really that I have noticed (I noticed like a single one, but I believe that was during a map change, which happens sometimes).

Hmm,

Code: [Select]
Tracing route to tastyspleen.net [23.227.170.222]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

  1    <1 ms    <1 ms    <1 ms  192.168.1.1
  2    80 ms    22 ms    83 ms  <ME>
  3   113 ms    31 ms    19 ms  100.127.73.182
  4   181 ms    25 ms    40 ms  100.120.100.10
  5   232 ms    36 ms    33 ms  68.1.4.252
 17    84 ms    60 ms    47 ms  tastyspleen.net [23.227.170.222]

Frankly not what I was anticipating.

If one can't get a good/reliable ping within one's own cable plant, then nothing after it can (necessarily) be expected to make sense.

In other words, if your local cable router "<ME>" is showing extreme variance, then everything following it is potentially suspect, especially if the final hop (17) shows similar variance.


I was hoping to see an anomaly in the latter hop (or two) of your route. But if the anomaly begins at hop (2) then… it may be something closer to home.

I guess we could try traceroutes to other Q2 servers where you have good/stable ping, to compare?

For the last 2 months pings have jumped dramatically. not just for 1 p[layer but a few, especially overseas players.

I used to ping 210-220 to dm but now it's 280-330

I ping 220 to pf-tdm-co
