So my internet is running slow. I'm on fedora Linux and I think know what im doing (meaning I'm sure it's not any apps or etc.). But this seems to be some provider related thing (Cox). Looking a this traceroute output -> am I correct to presume that ther is some issue with cox internal network that make the hop from my router to Cox server (10.4.8.1) super slow?

[stan@localhost ~] $ traceroute 8.8.8.8

EDIT: Nvm. I know it's been awhile - but I figures it out. I actually have apache server hooked up to HDD movies drive. My brother was streaming HD movies from there which is why it clogged all traffic.

  • This only means that the intermediate hops doesn't want to reply to traceroute. As a probably irrelevant tip, mtr (My Traceroute) provides more info than traceroute and is better for diagnosing what your ISP/Firewall is doing. It's also more interactive. Basically it's a program that pings the traceroute midpoints continuously. – Arthur2e5 Oct 25 '15 at 19:42
  • I think telephoning your ISP is a nice solution though. – Arthur2e5 Oct 25 '15 at 19:45

    also, your link is flooded. 919ms in one hop....i presume that "gateway" is your machine and "10.4.8.1" is the ISP's side of the pppoe or whatever link? – cas Oct 25 '15 at 20:11
  • @cas yeah exactl. 10.4.8.1 is ISP. What does it mean my link is flooded? – Dannyboy Oct 25 '15 at 20:24

    could be. upgrading your internet connection may be a wiser move for household happiness. – cas Oct 25 '15 at 20:41

EDIT: Nvm. I know it's been awhile - but I figured it out. I actually have apache server serving movies from HDD drive. My friend was streaming HD movies from there which is why it clogged all traffic.
