Re: Bad Gateway

said by bluepoint:

That's what I'm trying to point at the router is busy. Why was it pinging 30ms before the storm and 2000ms now? What do you think happens? Wouldn't you think gaming will be affected?

It's not 2000ms now, it's not responding now. At least that's what you said and showed originally.

If it's 2000ms then show us.

Use PingPlotter, run it for awhile, and post some graph screenshots. A single tracert with single hop times don't show enough to really give a good answer.

Ok I just did a tracert and it's better and it's responding. :uhh:


I think they are probably working on those nodes.

What are you seeing? Constant lag or spikes?

What game and server is he connected to? How? PC, console?

It's a PS3 and I have to ask my son which server. I would think the server is here in NYC. My last post, the first trace, is to ps3.sony.com.

ps3.sony.com could be totally unrelated to the server your son uses. It's like having some one trace to www.twcable.com when your own IP has issues.

Traces to the actual IP your son uses would be MUCH more helpful.

I'm sure there are a lot of issues in NYC area with servers and routers.

No... 67.215.65.132 it's actually the non-existent domain reply server from OpenDNS.

ps3.sony.com doesn't exist.

That's what I'm thinking that's why I'm waiting a bit for the smokes to clear. If you see my last trace, its back responding in the hundreds now, a little better.

I am trying to remember how many times I have seen this discussion.

This made me smile

"All you're saying are guesses, I want a factual answer and I posted to get an answer and not to argue. I want to know why the gateway used to ping 30ms and now answering @2000ms or not at all."

Who do you think is going to give you a factual answer here?

Thanks for that, You probably have one of the most knowledgeable person I know posting in the thread but you appear to be looking for an answer that satisfies you rather than listening to facts.

Oh well. Maybe one of the New York City Network engineers will wander in and fill you in on all the facts. Don't hold your breath.

You don't even understand what you're looking at. Check the IP and traces for dsjflsdjfllsdjlsdjfljsdfljsdf.com and compare them to ps3.sony.com

What you are seeing is the result of OpenDNS non-existent domain redirects. Use another, non-redirecting, DNS server or disable OpenDNS "Domain Typos>Enable typo correction" and try those traces and whois again.

You will find ps3.sony.com doesn't exist.

You were correct ps3.sony.com is non existent.
Trying myservices now, the gateway is back to not responding.


BTW, I ask my son about the server name were his PS3 connects when he plays, he doesn't know. He said it just connects. :huh:

No one but the techs working on the network can tell you what's different and why.

What a lot of us are trying to tell you is that ICMP deproritization in routers is common, not specifically indicative of a problem, and that you should focus on a different method of testing. When I had AT&T U-verse, the gateway only responded to me very early in the morning.

For what it's worth, I don't like it either. Without having reliable traces, it's much harder to be able to clearly identify where performance bottlenecks begin.

The gateway not responding doesn't really seem to have any particular effect on your connection from the traces you've posted, a mere pothole on your data highway. The several hops following the gateway all seem to be responding with good times. Even the last hop times are good and never unusual.

For now I'd say ignore your odd gateway IP response and look for some other symptoms that coincide with your son's gaming problems.

I understand deprioritation in routers, what I'm trying to figure out is, why is the gateway not responding anymore, is it because Sandy made a damage to the infrastructure? It used to answer to pings within 30ms or less anytime since I have this service before Sandy and now it's taking a very long time to answer the request(timeout). You agree with me it's harder to diagnose performance problem without the missing data. It's easy to say to ignore the gateway not answering and focus on the rest of the hops. It's true all the traceroute I posted have good acceptable hop readings except for the gateway but before this storm, those hops that answers @15ms were @10ms or less. If you were a gamer, those are better ping times. All I'm saying here is, I understand Sandy made some damages in our area and probably is the cause of all of these abnormal readings. I've checked the maintenance site in my area and there are areas that are still down plus hub maintenances this week and next. Maybe this is just a temporary setback, I believe once TWC lit the rest of my area and finish the maintenance next week, it will be back to normal.

15ms is still EXCELLENT, especially 4 hops out.

Besides the last hop time is what matters. If it's 90ms now and the intermediate hops drop to 5ms, the last hop can still be 90ms and that 10ms drop on the intermediate hops won't have made any difference. If that gateway hop starts responding, even at 30ms, and the last hop is still at 90ms, again it won't have made any difference.

Just for some perspective.... a blink of an eye take 200-300ms.

Still 93ms at the destination just like your first post, so I say not different.
