What should be the average ping time across a pt2pt connection.  From one server to another?  My first hop hits the default gateway(1ms), then hits the end serial interface (10ms), then the server(10ms).  Is this normal times.

It all depends on the distance of the circuit, for Point-to-Point circuits the latency is going to be much lower than a circuit going through carrier networks on the public internet.

A 10ms latency is extremely good for a point-to-point circuit as most are around 15ms to 25ms, but it is completely dependant on the distance and how your carrier has engineered your circuit.

it depends on the type of connection.  i have a full mesh mpls network so its not exactly p2p.  i have a location in san diego that responds in 16ms and a location in miami that responds in 68ms.  these are both coming from los angeles.  i think your response times are just fine.
