Hello expert,

I was put up with a strange question by my lead and i couldnt reply him back. Could you please help me out.

The destination im trying to rach is only 2 hops away. The First ping response took 25ms , second and further responses are only 1ms, why there is a delay in the first response of the ping ? and  by this inturn affecting the total 5 ping response average to 6ms ?

Please find below with the Ping and Traceroute.

Does this 'higher' RTT happen every time you ping the device or did it just happen the once?

Everytime I Ping the First  response is between 10-25ms .. second and further responses are 1ms constantly.

Appreciate your help.

Thanks

Login to the first hop Router and ping from there, is the result the same?

Sometimes the first ping is dropped whilst an ARP is completed but this should not happen the second time as your device caches the MAC address of your default gateway.

Do an arp -a on your device, is the MAC of your default gateway shown?

As said earlier

Everytime I Ping the First  response is between 10-25ms .. second and further responses are 1ms constantly.

This is not for the single destination 10.24.24.2, but it is same to all the destination(out of the subnet of the PC) when im trying to ping for ex: 10.24.64.1

------------------

Ping Avg. from the next hop router to 10.24.24.2 is 1 Ms.. Yes the mac address is learnt in arp table of the PC.

Thanks,

What I am getting at is, this issue seems to be pinging any destination IP address from the same PC correct?

The issue does not occur if you ping from others machines?

Yes from the same PC, the other PC's are pinging in 1ms.

Thanks,

Could some one help me on this, pls..

Thanks

Hi Srikanth,

The first package has to find the entry in the ARP table.

You can try pinging from the switch that the host is connected to, which should give you an idea if there is an issue there.

from the next hop router of the PC. the ping response is of average 4ms for 5 ping responses.

1. ping response of 4ms. for the destination which is on cloud is acceptable right.?

2. My lead really want to know why the single PC is responding slow.

Just try the following steps;

1.run the command "clear arp-cache" on the router, then check the ping response

if issue still not resolved then

2. change ip address of your pc and check the result.

If its just a single PC then that narrows things down a bit.

I am not sure why a 'lead' would be concerned about a single PC but if you really need to know then try a wireshark on the PC and run the ping again and then analyse the packets.

My bet is on ARP so clear the cache on the PC by running the following in a CMD window:

netsh interface ip delete arpcache

Hello ,

Now its affected to all PC's . the First ping response is reaching to 15 ms. but the next response is just 1ms-2ms.

I have cleared the cache to all the PC's. its still the same.

I stucked here. Kindly, help me on this.

Thanks,

Srikanth
