comment Hosted Network Latency
thanks; I'm going to take those comments as indicative that you think this is abnormal as well. FWIW, I've run some tcpping tests and they pretty much show it's not just isolated to ICMP traffic.

FWIW, though, I'm really trying to get an answer as to whether I should be concerned about this or not, not necessarily the cause of the additional latency if it's pretty much SOP in a hosted environment. It seems abnormally high to me, but I'm not used to a hosted environment (though the hoster is top-tier with the premium prices to match) or large-scale networking - so it's possible this is just the norm and I'm being a PITA....

Just got this update from the hoster: "the firewall is on one switch while the server is on another with a router in between. The router has the VLAN's trunked across it to allow communication between the switches...the extra hops could be the cause of the latency".

@MichaelHampton - FWIW, the ASA also serves VPN duties and will be used for site-to-site VPN (not currently setup, so I don't think it's affecting this latency issue) in the near-future. That, and I still am not entirely comfortable with host-based firewalls....

It's a 5505 Security+. I'm not sure on licensing, but it's a 100Mb port and max throughput seems consistent with that. It also has client-to-site and site-to-site VPN licensed. It's notated as "Port Upgrade: 100Mb Port" on the account - though I don't really see how that'd be an "upgrade". I've added details of pings through the ASA to the question as well - which show similar behavior. Again, this is a new setup with no other devices and no actual production traffic short of an RDP session to the server.
