  • Logan Perkins

    No mention of bufferbloat. If you're not on fibre internet (and sometimes even if you are), bufferbloat is pretty much the number one cause of poor performance when multitasking on the internet (which includes someone else in the house watching netflix or similar). ISPs largely mitigated it within their networks back in 2012, but the cable/dsl modem+router combos still shipping to consumers lack the queue management required to fix it. This lets the ISP say everything is fine on the connection, but causes lag and stuttering when the connection is under load, which they hope will prompt customers to purchase higher tier connections. Solution: get a dedicated modem and put an OpenWRT modem inside it with SQM enabled.

    Being located on Guam every online game is going to be over 50ms, you'll be lucky if you can get a stable 130ish ms. The funny thing is if I want to use a closer server geologically the ping will be twice as worst (240ms or higher) because the for some reason it will go to untied states server 1st then it will go Australia server (mind blown). So the fix I found because another youtuber was sponosering the product is "exitlag". the ping to oceanic server went from 230 & up ms down to 130ms stable.

    "Ping Time" is not a thing. A 'ping' is the informal name of the packet that the program named ping(.exe) sends out to a chosen server to measure latency. It's not a 'kind' of latency.

    Websites need to be more optimised, and heavy scripts should be lazy loaded. As a web developer, the main issues here are:
    - Badly built/optimised sites
    - High ping from far off server locations
    - Insufficient server optimisation

    You missed a bit more information. Let me explain.
    Another reason why a website can load slowly is that the site can be on a Shared hosting server. This means that the resources of the server are being used for multiple websites all using the same IP Address.
    Another can also be that the site using poor hosting that has limited about of CPU / RAM and I/O Usage.
    Depending on how many users visit the site at the same time. The I/O looks through the database tables and reconstructs the page for you to see.
    Problem is if there are little resources to the I/O Usage the site can hang because it's working on building that page for you and others. If it can't you might see a 503 Error or can't connect.
    Godaddy is known to be a bad service because of this. I know, because I'm dealing with it right now.

    It could also be caused if a server is using archive disks (probably youtube for less desired videos) i.e. if you try and load a video with 300 views from 5 years ago its probably in a server that's far away and it needs time to spin up the archive disk (which is slow on its own) and send it to you from that remote server.

    I recently created a Chrome plug-in to reduce the multiple late requests problem caused by javascript and poor/average webpage design.
    To keep it private, it caches page structure along with your bookmarks, so the more you visit your favorite sites, the faster they stay on average.
