High Network Latency SFO1
I have a low-end droplet in the SFO1 datacenter, and I'm struggling with a frustrating problem that I haven't been able to nail down.
For whatever reason, the console gets moments of extreme latency. So bad, that I can type an entire command, press enter, and still not even see what I've written yet for a second or two before it suddenly jumps on the screen and executes. This is also causing problems for the application websites.
I'm looking at a ping to 126.96.36.199 and the ping is woefully inconsistent. Most pings are at a steady 24ms, which is good, but there are far too many pings that hit 500-3000ms. During these moments, the console understandably freezes, and it happens often enough to be a problem.
I saw that on July 8th there were reports of latency issues, and that they were reportedly fixed, but it doesn't appear to be the case for me. Any ideas?
