Ping Online Diary

Personal Blogs

I have noticed from quite some time that my blog loads up very slowly. I have got the same feedback from some of my visitors as well

I have raised the ticket with my hosting provider i.e. GoDaddy many times, and every time they ask for a trace route for venukb.com

I promptly sent the traceroute and after checking the traceroute, every time GoDaddy’s response is same; The problem is not from our end !!!

I have never tried to ping my own site, today when I did try it out, this was the result:

Pinging venukb.com [68.178.211.85] with 32 bytes of data:

Request timed out.

Ping statistics for 68.178.211.85:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 2, Lost = 2 (50% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 339ms, Maximum = 340ms, Average = 339ms

I have been trying to ping from the past 1 hour and the result is same. There is a 50% packet loss and I don’t what the reason is !!

Who ever is reading this post, request you to ping venukb.com and let me know if you are also facing a similar packet loss.

Does somebody know how to find the root cause for this packet loss ?

    I tried pinging google also, I am getting no response from that too. Not sure if it is some linux machine issue!

    Vasu, if you are trying from office, you will not be able to ping. I also tried from my office, same result 🙂

    I guess in a enterprise, the pinging is disabled 🙂
