Hello, I got a situation that some servers in our network (connected with giga switch) have sometimes high latency peaks more than 10ms that usually at <1 or =1 ms latency. those servers are intensive memory,cpu,disk ,network about 30 to 40 % average usage. my question ,is there any correlation with those component to the fact that network monitoring shows sometimes high latency?. Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

These numbers do not seem too bad however, it is possible that the server is busy processing pending requests and that responses to ICMP pings are delayed due to these activities. Really these numbers seem pretty normal for a network. Are users seeing any timeout issues?
