8/24    I get 3% packet loss when running mtr (with ICMP echo packets) to my
        dedicated server. Is this amount of packet loss considered normal
        and generally acceptible? Is there a better program for getting
        network quality statistics than mtr?  Thanks.
        \_ How many hops and through what network(s)?
           \_ 19 hops. Through <DEAD>att.net<DEAD> (comcast), <DEAD>shawcable.net<DEAD>, to rackforce
              \_ Damn.  I knew rackforce sucked, but 19 hops to comcast?
                 I'd suggest switching providers.
              \_ Then it can be very reasonable.  -John
