I have a quite strange problem regarding the connecting to a remote server.
The problem is very annoying when I'm using Midnight Commander (
mc), just to scroll or inside the editor.
Overall there is a big lag between when I press a key and I get the response.
Now here is the current list of investigations:
26 packets transmitted, 26 received, 0% packet loss, time 25033ms rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 154.538/158.928/178.473/5.057 ms
I tried to transfer a 50MB zip file from my machine to the server via SSH(scp) and I got an average speed of >1Mbps (initially the speed was around ~150kbps but grew fast)
top - 02:36:09 up 217 days, 5 min, 3 users, load average: 0.22, 0.55, 0.40 Tasks: 75 total, 2 running, 73 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 zombie Cpu(s): 0.0%us, 0.0%sy, 0.0%ni,100.0%id, 0.0%wa, 0.0%hi, 0.0%si, 0.0%st Mem: 2053312k total, 1940624k used, 112688k free, 22848k buffers Swap: 392184k total, 12556k used, 379628k free, 742936k cached
Note: this is a virtual machine and I asked IT if there is load issue with the guest and they reported that everything is ok.
What else could cause this and how to solve it?
