Very high latency and packet loss on cryptofree nodes

Postby a917d21a » Mon Nov 21, 2016 2:10 am

Hello.

I haven't been using Cryptostorm for a few months and now, being out of the tokens, tried using Cryptofree.
I get ping times on the order of 1.5 sec, serious packet loss, and download speeds about 40 KB/s, so the connection is practically unusable.

I understand that Cryptofree is a free service, and don't expect much, but I occasionally used it before without any issues.

Are there any problems with Cryptofree, or Cryptostorm infrastructure?
Or should I blame my ISP or myself?
Thanks.


Here are some diagnostics.

212.129.10.40 node.

Ping to the server looks fine:

Code: Select all

--- 212.129.10.40 ping statistics ---
10 packets transmitted, 10 received, 0% packet loss, time 1806ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 71.450/76.774/82.009/3.083 ms

After VPN is connected (OpenVPN 2.3.2 x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, latest cryptofree config from Github, just changed the server from random to 212.129.10.40) - ping to the gateway is pretty bad:

Code: Select all

--- 10.55.0.1 ping statistics ---
10 packets transmitted, 10 received, 0% packet loss, time 1843ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 386.780/556.713/692.390/106.199 ms, pipe 4

Sometimes - without me doing anything - ping times drop to normal values, and then rise again in a few minutes:

Code: Select all

--- 10.55.0.1 ping statistics ---
10 packets transmitted, 10 received, 0% packet loss, time 1805ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 73.664/83.626/104.782/8.625 ms

Ping to Google with VPN connected - no good at all:

Code: Select all

$ ping -c10 -i0.2 google.com
PING google.com (173.194.44.78) 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from 173.194.44.78: icmp_seq=5 ttl=52 time=1666 ms
64 bytes from 173.194.44.78: icmp_seq=6 ttl=52 time=2116 ms
64 bytes from 173.194.44.78: icmp_seq=7 ttl=52 time=2037 ms
64 bytes from 173.194.44.78: icmp_seq=8 ttl=52 time=2094 ms
64 bytes from 173.194.44.78: icmp_seq=10 ttl=52 time=2202 ms

--- google.com ping statistics ---
10 packets transmitted, 5 received, 50% packet loss, time 1871ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 1666.764/2023.375/2202.204/186.032 ms, pipe 6


212.129.34.154 node.
Ping to the host isn't good, so VPN is bad as well.

Code: Select all

--- 212.129.34.154 ping statistics ---
10 packets transmitted, 10 received, 0% packet loss, time 1829ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 313.723/451.955/544.070/72.848 ms, pipe 3

Traceroute breaks midway, so not much help from it:

Code: Select all
