There is 0% packet loss, but latency is around the 80ms range. The customer is using FTP as their metric for
comparison...not great, but considering that our provder has two paths one through Phoenix and one through Houston, and
one path can sustain 250KB ftp transfers but the other only sustains 50kB ftp transfers...I would love them to reroute
our traffic through Phoenix but am having some political difficulties to overcome.
I would think there is a way for us to static route this traffic through Phoenix, or hardcode it in the BGP table...I
tried a few tweaks with no joy.
Thank you for your input,

Is the throughput you're reporting for a single untuned TCP/IP
stream? If so, the throughput may not be a function of the
backbone through which the traffic is passing.
Similarly, what's the traffic loss like over the link? If you are
seeing even a tenth of a percent worth of loss, don't expect to
do high bandwidth flows over the link.
