    Let's see who has the best tracert to xenforo.com.

    Here's mine:

    Why does my connection go through weird routes?

    Looks pretty normal, hop out of your router, hop to the ISP's infrastructure, bounces through a few of its internal nodes to get close to the planet datacenter, where XenForo's server is housed, then bounces through their internal infrastructure, and finally to XenForo's server.

    Whoops, my other one (for another website) is wierd. It goes through killercreation.co.uk, before going onto above.net.

    killercreation.co.uk is a hosting company in the UK, I wouldn't be too surprised if they are routing their servers through their own network before handing it off to above.net's backbone to connect to USA.

    Also, this is not my, but hypothetically speaking the dev will win:
    Code:
    root@xfprod:~# traceroute xenforo.com
    traceroute to xenforo.com (174.123.247.179), 30 hops max, 40 byte packets
    1  xenforo.com (174.123.247.179)  0.096 ms  0.020 ms  0.019 ms

    So far, this is my packet:

    Home -> uk-internal->killercreation->abovenet->twtelecom-> dc>server

    For XenForo, it's more direct: Home -> OpalTelecom->ThePlanet (wow, that's 7 hops at ThePlanet before it gets to the server)

    The dev certainly wins!

    The Planet in Dallas Texas is the server?

    I would not have guessed that.

    I stand corrected. Which is especially silly because I used to use The Planet through a re-seller. :oops:

    Makes sense since Tokyo to Los Angeles takes 41 ms in fiber. And that's assuming a single line connection that runs directly from the heart of Tokyo in a straight line to LA. :)

    Too bad Seattle to China doesn't get the same performance...
     
  14. Erik

    Erik Well-Known Member

    Only a 4 ms difference... :)

    http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=seattle,+washington+to+china*

    *Again, this is a straight line and does not account for the actual location of undersea cables, the amount of wiring in routers/switches/machines, etc. and the inherent processing latency when passing through machines. :)

    Offtopic - Do you live in China? What's it like there? :)

    I'm in Canada. Nearest drop to China (if my network mapping memories serves me right) is Seattle to China.
    Straight fiber and speed of light limitations aside, the speed is always horrendous due to Great FireWall of China and other factors...

    For whatever reason, I used to get routed through Osaka to California/Seattle even though I live dead smack in the middle of central Tokyo. (Osaka is ~550km from Tokyo)

    Andy Huang Well-Known Member

    It really depends on ISP's routing... I remember the major drop in Japan is owned by either NTT DOCOMO or whatever its called... so if you're using any other ISP, it'll also do some fun routings to get into NTT DOCOMO's network, and then out through the drop.
