comment Monitor network traffic volume over interface
Looks great, unfortunately I am not able to install any new tools on these locked down boxes.

comment Monitor network traffic volume over interface
D'oh, search fail (and I tried). To be fair, I think it's a serverfault question, not a SO one :)

comment Local or public NTP servers?
Hah, it's been a long time since I've had any homework :) I'm not a personally a network admin with thousands of hosts - but the question came up and I'm interested in the existing best practices.

comment Is asymmetric latency common in practice?
I ask because if you want to optimize communication some particular grid/cloud structure of hosts, you'll be able to do it best if you know the one-way latencies of each link. The one-way latencies are difficult/impossible to calculate in practice, however, so you are left with round-trip times - so I'm curious whether 1/2 the RTT is in practice a good approximation to the one way latency.

OK, but these just means that latency has some jitter and the whole process has some random deviation on each request - but this also imply that this asymmetry would remain relative constant (at least in sign) over time?

Can you give details? If you can do it, you'd be able to show up the supposed "proof" on stackoverflow for this very question (link in OP).
