Re: DNS issues.
said by thataboi:latency (typically gauged by a ping or traceroute) to a server that rate limits or drops ICMP and even udp traceroute packets is not a good way to check the response time of a DNS server.
Typical dslreports critcism. Well did you use a dsnlookup tool?? Wow really? What is a dsntool going to tell me that I don't already know hen I am sitting in front of a screen with half the internet loading text?? So I did a simple tracert to the server as this was happening and it ended with packet loss. So are you going to insult me some more?

The actual time it takes for a response is:
Lookup time (which may involve querying authoritative servers, or doing a recursive lookup, etc)
So even if a DNS server didn't rate limit ICMP, ping alone will not tell you the whole story.
