High latency ping from Japan via Vultr vps


#1

I encountered very high latency ping from Vultr Japan VPS

PING google.com (216.58.204.78) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from lhr25s13-in-f14.1e100.net (216.58.204.78): icmp_seq=1 ttl=49 time=223 ms

This has nothing to do with the DNS servers. Cloudflare isn’t responsible for your network connection.

Repeat this ping on
216.58.204.78 instead of Google.com. Or better: do an mtr / traceroute and paste it here :slight_smile:

Here is the traceroute log: http://pasted.co/c6ed9a45

Sort of is responsible in this case. Since they do not use the edns client subnet the result from the A DNS query to google.com results in a server in London (LHR) And not in Tokyo or nearby.

Have any solution to fix? because other website are going well.

It would need to be a collaboration between CF and Google, for us the only solution would be to change DNS server. I am actually in the middle of deciding the same thing. Luckily in EU the default server is FRA, so any VPS that is there would give no problem.
